Youth Ministry

Today's youth live in a challenging culture. Hectic schedules, high expectations, extra-curricular activities and scholastic pressure are just a few of the demands they face on a day-to-day basis. Calvary's youth program offers a refuge from this world, but also sends them back into the world to take the good news of God's love to those that need it. Our youth are engaged in worship, serving, fellowship and learning in a variety of ways.

High School (Grades 9-12)

Calvary's High School group normally meets the first Sunday of each month from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. You need not be a member of Calvary to participate in our youth activities. All are welcome!

Middle School (Grades 6-8)

Students at the middle school age level are a part of the confirmation program Besides their the faith development through study and mentoring, Calvary's confirmation participants are offered opportunities for fellowship time where they grow relationships and connect with each other. Other activities include special events with the high school group and opportunities to attend various retreats throughout the year.  The Middle School youth group generally meets the second Sunday of each month from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m

Grades 3-5
The children's group enjoy fellowship, fun, and faith as they take part in group events designed as a precursor to our middle & high school youth groups. Through regular monthly gatherings and special events held several times each year, our children learn Biblical truths and develop a deeper relationship with Jesus. They also come to understand that church is a safe, fun place where they establish life-long friendships. All third through fifth graders are invited to come to the monthly meeting generally the third Sunday of the month from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.  We encourage you to bring a friend!

Family Ministry

FIRM (Families In Real Ministry) is Calvary's ministry group designed specifically for families.  FIRM is a group open to the entire congregation, friends, neighbors, and the community.  This group has events and activities centered around growing the faith of your family through service projects, games, education, and more! Be on the lookout for more information on upcoming FIRM programs. 

"But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15
