Presbyterians believe in lifelong learning and spiritual growth. In our Christian Education programs you find us actively discussing ways we can grow in our faith and apply it to our life in the world. Classes for all ages are held on Sunday from September through May. Additional classes are held throughout the week in person and online for adults. Members and visitors alike are invited to join us.
Children and youth are an integral part of the Calvary family. From participation in Christ centered learning and activities, they build lasting friendships in a safe, loving environment. Our children and youth are included in worship, family and special group activities designed just for them. From September through May, children and youth are invited to participate in Sunday Christian Education classes and activities. We use curriculum from the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA).
Please fill out the Christian Education Registration form below for each child being registered.
