The Followers Children's Ministry (Infants through 5th Grade)

The Followers Children’s Ministry strives to provide a teaching and learning environment that is safe and fun. Our Servants use a variety of tools and techniques to teach the Word of God with an age appropriate curriculum that takes them from Genesis through Revelation, sharing the truths of God’s Word.

Our goal is to partner with parents in building a solid biblical foundation, making disciples and followers of our Lord.

What the Parent /Children can expect

Each parent/ guardian must register their child at the check in stations and will receive a printed set of stickers with the child’s name and important information about your child; possible allergies or health issues. One of the stickers will be worn by the child and the Guardian sticker will be retained by the parent/guardian. Upon arrival to the classroom, your child will be greeted by a teacher and welcomed to their class. During your child ‘s class time they will participate in interactive worship, prayer, bible time, crafts and activity/play time. Our toddlers through Kindergarten will receive a snack during class time.

Servant Volunteers

The Follower’s servant/volunteer ministry team is dedicated to serving the children and their families. Each servant/volunteer is asked to serve for a 6-month commitment.

Each person must attend the DNA classes before serving in any ministry. Click here to learn more. Classroom trainings take place either on Sunday mornings or via video classes from home to insure teachers are equipped. Each person serving in the Children’s Ministry is required to pass a background check.

If you would like to join our Children’s Ministry team, we have many opportunities to serve in our Children’s Ministry 6-days a week.

NURSERY

 (Infants through 2 year olds)

 Wiggles, giggles and lots of love is what comes from these precious little ones.

 Each service time we provide a clean, safe environment filled with love and care for your child so that you may attend service.  Our servants pray over the little ones, recite scripture, sing songs, and teach simple Bible Stories from God’s Word.  Our desire is to partner with the parents/guardians as we plant those seeds from God’s truth in to each life.

PRE-SCHOOL

(3 year olds through Kindergarten)

 Preschoolers are full of energy and need creative ways to keep them engaged.  They are little sponges. We don’t want to waste the time by just “playing”, we are intentional with our time.  Our classroom time is filled with interactive worship, Bible time, crafts, snacks, games and activities that help SOAK up the Word of God.

It is our desire to partner with the parents/guardians as we begin to build a solid foundation in each life.

SPECIAL NEEDS MINISTRY

Created in the Image of God. Genesis 1:26

Each are created for His purpose, with gifts, talents, abilities and challenges.

Each are created to praise Him and serve Him.  Psalm 139:13-15

It is our desire at Calvary Worship Center to be able to minister to the whole body of Christ.  It is important that people with disabilities are integrated into the life and service of our congregation, to enhance our church body by what we can offer as well as what they can offer.

CWC SPN Ministry – “Buddy System”

A “Special Needs Buddy” is simply another member from the church body who answers God’s call to ministry by pairing up with those in the body, adult or child, who work better with a one-on-one companion.

If you’d like to be a part of this SPN Ministry, please call the church at (719) 632-3311 or email our Children’s Ministry Director.

CHILDREN’S WORSHIP

“From the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise.”

At Calvary Worship Center we feel that no one is too young to worship our Lord Jesus Christ. We incorporate worship time from the youngest to the oldest; it may simply be playing worship songs with the infants, singing simple Bible songs with the toddlers or engaging the children in interactive worship. We feel this prepares the hearts of the children to receive God’s Word and it helps to each child to seek God in all they do. As with all our classes our Children’s Worship always begins and ends with prayer. 

For more information about our Children’s Worship, please call the church at (719) 632-3311 or email our Children’s Director.

PUPPETS AND DRAMA

At Calvary Worship Center we feel there are many ways to bring God’s word to our children. Our Puppet and Drama teams perform plays and skits to enhance what is taught in the classrooms.  Our Puppet and Drama teams strive to make Bible Stories come to life.  As with all of our Children’s Ministry teaching the plays and skits are also designed to reach children through age appropriate scenarios.
