Periodically, one of our adult facilitators or a guest lecturer will present a special series on a topic or book of interest.

The class will use Growing in Grace and Gratitude, a curriculum rooted in the foundation of Presbyterian identity where God’s grace and our gratitude are the heartbeat of our faith, life, and worship, children will receive an invitation to discipleship through the reading of Bible stories, fun activities, prayer and singing. This curriculum inspires children to learn and practice hospitality, generosity, and love; and reaches beyond Sunday morning, encouraging children to live their lives as an expression of God’s grace.
Children in grades kindergarten through fifth grad are invited to share the gift of song! Join Calvary friends for this musical lesson and performance prep time right after Christian Education at 10:15 a.m. More information is available on our music ministry page.
