PROGRAMS FOR FAMILIES AND CHILDREN

Led by staff member Sally Engelbert, this ministry offers various activities and events for children and for families to participate both in the church and at special activities in the community, apart from Sunday worship. Activities include movie nights, craft events, and seasonal activities.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Godly Play is the educational curriculum used by Calvary in Sunday School for children in preschool through 6th grade. The curriculum invites children to discover God themselves and one another through our sacred stories. Based on the Montessori tradition, Godly Play uses a careful telling of scripture stories, engaging story figures and activities to encourage children to seek and find answers to their faith questions. The program respects the innate spirituality of children and encourages curiosity and imagination in experiencing the mystery and joy of God. See more here

Sunday School takes place from September through May after the 9:30 am family worship service.

SPECIAL EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES

Family Fun Nights are held monthly during the program year, September through May. The event takes place in Hannaford Hall from 6:00 until around 8:00 pm on Friday nights. Last year, we hosted two movie nights, a game night, a special just-for-kids gift-making day, and other fun activities on Friday evenings for the whole family to share.

FAMILY-FRIENDLY WORSHIP

The Sunday family worship service is an integral part of family programs that include and welcome children. Please check the Worship page for a description of this special service.
