2020 “COVID 19” Vacation Bible School

Each year Calvary engages children of the congregation and larger community in a Vacation Bible School.  In 2020 this was not possible due to COVID 19 health concerns, and so we sent out “VBS at Home” packages to children who have attended in the past.  Each package included 8 stories with crafts, coloring pages and links to online songs and stories.  The activities were designed not only with the children in mind, but also in a manner so that many children would be able to engage in the activity with limited parental support since many parents are currently stretched thin due to jobs (or lack of a job), concerns about childcare, and additional stressors.

(Will resume when we return to activities in the church building)   

Next to our Fellowship Hall, is Calvary's Nursery for infants through 3 years. Trained staff supervise and care for your little ones while you are participating at worship, bible study, or another event. 

CHILDREN'S CHURCH

4 year olds through 5th graders are invited to attend Children’s Church on Sunday mornings.  Currently Children’s church occurs in an online Zoom format at 9am on Sunday mornings.  Children are provided with Biblical stories, teachings and prayer in an informal and engaging time.  Parents are welcome to stay close to their child to support their learning.

When we return to the church building we will resume our typical Children’s Church which generally has the children dismissed partway through the service.  A teacher meets them at the back of the sanctuary and walks the students over to the Christian Education building across the alley.  The children will be brought back to the Fellowship Hall at the end of the worship service.


Or…If you prefer your child stays with you during Worship Services, there are Worship Bags they may use.  Inside the bag is drawing supplies or fun work pages to complete with coloring tools on a clipboard.  Pick one up at the Information Table in the Foyer.
