Elementary, grades 1-4: Room 105

For the fall, we will be using What's Up? Elementary: Learning about Jesus and Yourself.  This course introduces the gospel to children and helps those who believe it to live out the good news of Jesus.

children's worship

Children's Worship at Calvary takes place during the second half of the worship service.  This optional program is designed for children age 4 - completed 1st grade.  Children's Worship is not merely child care nor is it another Sunday school class.  Instead, the elements and wonder of the worship service are presented to children in an age-appropriate way to teach and nurture young worshipers of Jesus Christ, preparing them for a lifetime of private and congregational worship.  

Below are videos that were made during 2020 - 2021, for parents to share with their young children at home.  

We use the curriculum, Young Children and Worship by Sonja M. Stewart and Jerome W. Berryman along with some additional stories from Following Jesus by Sonja M. Stewart and I Wonder by Janet Schreuder.
