Ministry for Elementary (k-5th Grade)

Love God More

Love People More

Love More People

Due to COVID-19, we are currently not meeting on campus at Calvary, so we are bringing our weekend Calvary Kids service to your home! Each Saturday, we post a new lesson that includes music, Bible stories and activities. Watch below!

Weekend Services

Our weekend services are designed with children in mind! Each child is taught in an age-appropriate environment. We offer our Calvary Kids services at each of our weekend services:

Saturday: 6pm :: located downstairs in room 1108

Sunday: 9am and 11am :: located downstairs and upstairs in age-specific rooms

During the service, children will experience energetic and interactive worship, engage in games and activities with new friends, and have focused time with loving leaders who make sure every child knows they are important and loved by God. Your child will have a blast and learn about Jesus in a way that connects with them on their level!

Safety & Security

We value being a place where kids feel both emotionally and physically safe. That is why we have a check out system including claim tags for each child, and our volunteers go through a background check and specific training so that each child is safe and well cared for.

In the event that we need to reach you during the church service, we will use the cell phone number of the person you selected at check-in.

In the event of an emergency all of our staff, leaders and volunteers are trained in our emergency procedures. These procedures include working with the Calvary security team and being aware of the evacuation plans for our facility. 

Volunteer with Calvary Kids

Volunteers make Calvary Kids come to life each week! There are so many ways you can help make kids feel loved and accepted here at Calvary Westlake. You might be a future small group leader, greeter, security team member, tech operator, or worship leader. We’d love to talk with you personally to help you find the right fit!

Calvary Kids Groups (CKG)

Calvary Kids Groups is our Wednesday evening programming for children ages 3 years-old through 5th grade. Using the Awana curriculum, our small group leaders are able to engage with kids in Bible-based teaching while having a whole lot of fun!

CKG starts at the beginning of September and goes through mid-November, picking back up January through April.

Registration opens each August for the new year of CKG!

Baptisms for Children

Each quarter, Children’s Ministries hosts a baptism class a few weeks before the next baptism service. Children in upper elementary grades, along with their parents, are invited to attend the class which teaches the fundamentals of the Christian faith and baptism as practiced here at Calvary Westlake. Once the child, parents, and leaders agree the child has a clear understanding of its meaning and is ready, they are invited to be baptized at the next baptism service. 

For more information on baptism for children or to sign-up to attend one of the classes, contact Pastor Nate Travis at nate.travis@calvarywestlake.org or 818.575.2258.

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Incoming TK through rising 5th graders are invited to spend a week of fun, friendship, and worship as we embrace a Gospel-filled theme that teaches how to live and love like Jesus. 

VBS 2020 may look different than we originally planned, but we’re still excited to bring VBS to your home!

Adventure Weeks

Adventure Weeks is our summer day camp for children entering Kindergarten through 5th grade and runs in the summer months of June, July, and August.
