This page is intended to provide an overview of our ministry to children. We believe that connections are best made in person, not over the internet, so we encourage you to join us on a Sunday morning so we can get to know you and your children! If you have questions before you come, please do not hesitate to contact DCE Laura Pulliam for more details.
Education Hour | We take time on Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45 am to stop our busy lives and focus on God’s Word… this is equally important for children as it is for adults! Bible classes are available for children in Pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade. In 7th grade, we encourage students to begin our Confirmation program. Our pre-K and kindergarten class meets in the gym (so they can be nearer to the adult classes) and our 1st-12th grade classes meet upstairs in the Ministry Building.
Nursery | Our nursery is located on the first floor of the Ministry Building and is open on Sundays from 8:30 am until 12:00 pm. If you need directions, an usher will be glad to assist you. The nursery is open to children up to four years of age. Parents can also use this space when quieting a restless child or changing a diaper as the worship service is live-streamed in this space. Our nursery is beautifully equipped and well staffed.
Children in Worship | We love children and are happy when they join us for worship. Just as a child learns to speak by imitating the voice of mom or dad, so too a child learns to worship by participating in the service at an early age. If you would like to read more on this topic (and get some helpful tips on how to engage your child in worship from a young age) check out this article from the LCMS website. We also have “My Quiet Church” bags available for children ages 3-7 that contain items that help keep restless little ones occupied during the sermon!
Kids In Action | Kids in Action is a Homeschool Physical Education class held in Mount Calvary’s gym. We meet on Mondays from 10:00-11:30am. Kids in Action is free to join. Contact Religious Educator Lauren Hannemann for more information.
Homeschool Co-Op | Mount Calvary Lutheran Homeschool Co-op is a Christ-centered learning environment that focuses on Enrichment Activities and Field Trips. Our Homeschool Co-op is available to students of all ages and is free to join. Contact Religious Educator Lauren Hannemann for more information.
Vacation Bible School & Music Camp | Each summer, we offer two camps for children who have completed Kindergarten through 6th grade. Publicity for these ministries typically begins in the spring and registration forms can be found in the church lobby (online registration is also offered for VBS).
