Presbyterians believe in lifelong learning and spiritual growth. In our Christian Education programs, you will 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 mornings from September through May. During the summer months, select classes may be held. Members and visitors alike are invited to join us.
Children and Youth
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 also 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 morning Christian Education classes and activities. We use curriculum from the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA).
