At Calvary-St. George’s Church, we know that spiritual formation begins with our youngest members. Our programing is designed to connect with children of all ages and developmental abilities with the intention of connecting families to the Christian faith. All programing focuses on 3 essentials of the Christian faith: God is FOR us, FORGIVES us, and is always WITH us.
Family Programing starts with infants and goes through young adulthood. Our talented team of volunteers warmly welcome our youngest members and communicate each Sunday that they are loved and forgiven through each of our offerings. Our team is enthusiastic, patient, kind, and have experience working with children.
Calvary-St.George’s offers weekly Sunday School classes and childcare for children of all ages at St. George’s 10 AM and Calvary 11 AM services.

SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES
PRE-K - KINDER: " Under His Wings" approaches spiritual formation through interactive storytelling and play. Our primary focus is to create positive experiences as our youngest learners begin to engage in God's great story. Our objective is for our little ones to know that God created them, loves them, and hears their prayers.
FIRST-THIRD: "The Fearless" begin to memorize verses, navigate through their Bible and discover what it means to be a Christian. The themes we explore are FAITH, GRACE, & COMPASSION. Our objective is for children to know they have a God that understands and forgives them, therefore they have NOTHING to FEAR.
FOURTH GRADE: "The Rejoicers" delve deeper into the Bible and the overarching narrative of God's grace for sinners. Our hope for each participant is to see themselves as RECEIVERS of God's active grace.
PLEASE NOTE: During Sunday School, children will be working with paints, markers, crayons and glue. Please dress your children appropriately (smocks will be available). In addition we are a NUT FREE zone, if you are interested in sending a snack with your child to Sunday School, please keep this in mind.
Creative Arts Camp
Creative Arts Camp is a FREE arts program for families. All children are invited to participate in a time of creativity which includes; singing, drama, crafts + story telling. C.A.C 2018 will take place June 25th - 29th from the hours of 3:30 - 5:30 pm . All children ages 4 - 15 are welcome to register.
Together we will explore, "The Giant" and campers will delve into the story of Hannah, Samuel and King David though art, story telling, and music. Each year our campers learn through exploration facilitated by our volunteers and together we point to the redemptive narrative woven through each story we present.
All 2nd through 6th graders are invited to come explore and learn about how Christ has revealed himself and the promise of his Gospel in the church's act of Holy Communion. Some children have been receiving Communion since they were baptized, while others have waited until later -- but whether they have previously received or not, this class is designed to further explain the mystery of Christ given in these ordinary means of bread and wine.
March 4, 11, 18 (no class Palm Sunday 3/25 or Easter 4/1)
Class series concludes the Sunday after Easter: April 8.

When a young teen joins they will find themselves serving in the capacity of Acolytes, Readers, Sunday School Assistants, Church Announcements, and Exploratory Brunches. Together as we grow in Faith, our hope is to broaden our teens experience in the church so they have a deeper knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith.
