Christian Education
(Pre-K through 5th Grade)

Mission and Purpose:
Calvary United Methodist Church has a long-term vision of transforming lives through the children’s Christian Education. We want our children to experience the love of Christ in the context of a safe community, to understand the traditions of the church and of scripture, and to develop into disciples with a mature and solid faith.
Our purpose is to love and nurture these children as they grow in the knowledge of Jesus, embrace the Christ mystery, and know God’s love for us all. To do this, we are providing a dynamic and purposeful learning environment that will help them remember their Christian Education experience all the days of their lives. Studies have shown that children better retain what they learn and experience in multiple ways.

Curriculum:
In Whirl, our Sparkhouse curriculum for kids Pre-K-5th grade, students consistently experience humor, real-life lessons, Biblical engagement, and take-home applications every week. Our teachers (who rotate weekly) love the fun, creative, and well organized structure of the program, and our families love the opportunity to continue learning throughout the week. We presently offer two classes for this age range (Pre-K-2nd & 2nd-5th); both meet in classrooms on the second floor of the church.

Time and Place:
Our class time begins at 10:30AM with our Praise and Worship Service. Families may either sign in their kids at the balcony before service, or escort them upstairs after the welcome time to their respective classrooms (two classrooms on the right side of hallway) to sign them in. You must please come to their classroom promptly at the service’s end to sign your child/ren out.
