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!

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

Children's Choir

The Children’s Choir is for children ages 3 and up. It practices regularly during the school year on Sundays after church services for a half hour. The choir is led by Mrs. Barb and Mrs. Kristen, who help our kids learn fun uplifting and christian songs throughout the year. This choir typically  to provide their wonderful, joyful songs during once a month during Sunday morning worship. If you have any questions, please contact:
