Childrens Ministry

Our vision for doing ministry with children reflects the vision of Mount Calvary.

Connecting People To Jesus

Through worship, study, and prayer we encourage children to grow in their relationship with God as they come to know about God’s amazing love for them!

Connecting People to One Another

Our Children’s Ministry works to create a place where children can come and be connected in a Christ-centered community, a place where they can belong.

To serve the world

Through offerings, crafts and an occasional trip we help our children see the world as a place they have been called to serve!

Our Philosophy of Education

We believe that the primary purpose of our Christian instruction is to help children grow in their faith.  As part of this instructional process we strive to make them knowledgeable about Biblical History as well as how God calls us to live with one another.  To do this in the most effective way possible, we use what is known as the rotation model.  Within this model, children move through a series of different learning environments (lecture, videos, active, & creative) to learn the lesson in a variety of ways.  As a result, the children have a higher ability to remember what was taught within the lessons.  In addition to that, it is also a lot of fun!


children's ministry Offerings

The children's ministry focuses on Christian programs that are offered during Sunday School and  Wednesday Evenings.  Mount Calvary also offers fun & fellowship events each quarter and Vacation Bible School during the summer.

  • Sunday School

    All children (Pre-K through 5th Grade) are welcome to join us for Sunday School between church services on Sunday (9:30 - 10:30am).  At "Rotation Station", children move between different stations of the lesson each week, as they learn through traditional classroom, movies (with popcorn), scrapbooking, and crafts.  Our theme for this year is "Called By God!" helping children to understand God's call on their life.  This month we will be learning about Nehemiah and how God called and worked through him to restore Jerusalem.

  • Wednesday evenings (Follow The Leader)

    The "Follow The Leader" ministry is for children Pre-School - 5th Grade and meets from 6:15 - 7:30pm on Wednesday.  This winter our children will be looking at "The F.E.W.D.S. of the Church" (Fellowship, Education, Worship, Discipleship & Evangelism) and how this confession of faith leads us to live as new creations at home, school, and church.  Children sing, play, create, and learn every Wednesday night.

  • Vacation bible school

    Each year, shortly after school lets out, we host a Vacation Bible School for children of our congregation, their friends and our neighbors.  While the theme each year varies, we have similar elements the kids have come to love: Openings, Lesson, Crafts, Puppets or Movies, Recreation, & Snacks

Fun & Fellowship

Our Kindergarten – 5th grade children get together quarterly for fun and fellowship.  From parties at church to trips to Monkey Joes, our goal is to hang out, have some fun, and get to know each other better!  Keep an eye on the Announcement's Page for information on each quarters events.
