Awaken Kids

At Calvary Church we are excited about children and consider them a vital part of our community!  


OUR VISION


From birth to graduation, every child is on a journey with Jesus. Our hope as a ministry is that we can provide a fun, safe place where God awakens their wonder, discovery and passion for Him through our love as leaders and the work of the Holy Spirit.


OUR PROCESS


1. Check-In | On Sunday mornings, new families are encouraged to register and check-in their children (ages 2 to grade 5) at the Check-In table in the lobby. Regular families are encouraged to check their children in by using our iPad--also at the Check-In table--to streamline our check-in process for every Sunday morning! Both new and regular families will get sticker name-tags for their children with one unique security sticker that parents/guardians will need to pick up their children at the end of the service!


2. Dismissal |  Children join the first worship portion of the service with the supervision of their family/guardian and then, after our offering and prayer, are dismissed to go downstairs to their own children's church around 10:20 am.


If you have children ages 0-2 there is a self-serve nursery (with video feed) available for you to use with snacks, toys, books and other amenities including a sink, baby-safe cleaning supplies and a changing mat with wipes and petroleum jelly!


3. Pick-Up | After our service is done (11:30 am), we would ask the parent/guardian who checked their children in, to check them out by providing the teacher with the unique security code given to you at the check-in table.


We also have special events and connecting points for children and families.  You can find more information by clicking on "events" or check in our weekly bulletin for more information about how you can get connected!


Pastor Caleb oversees our Children's ministry and would be happy to answer any further questions that you might have.
