Family Ministries

At Calvary UMC, we believe that the foundations of faith begin with the family. We strive to support these faith foundations through our Family Ministries. Family Ministries include educational, fellowship and mission-oriented opportunities for children and their families to participate in. We are excited to announce that our Family Ministries program is growing! Check back in early 2022 for new programming information.

Children's Church

Children’s Church is a time for children to build their faith in Jesus through age-appropriate lessons, songs, games and activities. Children’s church is for kids age pre-k through 8th grade. Children’s Church meets in the Chapel during the 10am worship service. Children may join their parent or guardian for the beginning of worship in the sanctuary and will attend Children’s Church following the children’s message. Children also have the option to stay with their parents for worship in the sanctuary. Those in 6th, 7th and 8th have opportunities to develop their leadership skills as helpers in Children’s Church or may choose to attend the regular worship service with their parents. If you would like to register your child for children’s church or would like more information please contact: or

Nursery Care

Nursery care is available for children aged 2 months through age three. Our nursery is currently run by volunteers who have safe sanctuaries training and a background check. The coordinator of the nursery is also on-sight for additional support to nursery staff. If you would like to volunteer or have questions about the program please contact:
