CALVARY KIDS GROUPS ARE BACK!
Wednesdays from 6:00 - 7:15pm
JANUARY 19 - APRIL 27, 2022
Just like our Adult, Young Adult, High School, and Middle School ministries, we are starting up our small groups for Early Childhood, Elementary, and Special Abilities ministries! Our team is so excited to kick off our CKGs once again after over a year-long hiatus of meeting in person.
It will have a slightly different feel because we are transitioning away from the Awana curriculum in order to connect to our Sunday curriculum, Orange: 252 Kids. The “252” is derived from Luke 2:52, “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man”. This shift is intentional for small groups so that we connect our Sunday morning curriculum to Wednesday nights with the vision of partnering with parents on a deeper level in the discipleship process of their children.
After much time spent away from friends or family, our desire is that Wednesday nights will offer an opportunity for Biblically-based conversations, a depth of connection with friends, and FUN, all within a safe environment shepherded by an influential leader. CKGs will also coincide with our FX Live evenings! Please scroll down for more information on FX Live.
CALVARY KIDS ON CAMPUS
SUNDAY 9AM & 11AM
Our weekend services are designed with children in mind! 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

PARENT CUE APP
Great resource for parents! The Parent Cue app is designed to help every parent do something each week to help move your child toward a deeper faith and a better future. Download the free Parent Cue app HERE.
After you download, input the ages of your children and select Calvary Community Church (Westlake Village) as your home church to stay in the loop with all things Calvary Kids!
SAFETY AND 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 are a key piece of Calvary Kids each Sunday and help children to live and love like Jesus! We have many ways you can help make kids feel loved and accepted at Calvary based on your gifts. We’d love to talk with you personally to help you find the right fit. We also invite parents to serve with their children because we believe it is important to model serving and invest in the faith of their children.

BAPTISMS FOR CHILDREN
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.
CK FAMILY EXPERIENCE (FX Live)
FEBRUARY 2ND, MARCH 2ND & APRIL 27TH
Our CK Family Experience (FX Live) is a live event where parents and kids (age 3 years old through 5th grade) join together on campus for music, laughter, and fun as we learn about the character of God.
FX Live is from 5:30pm-7:15pm. Dinner available for pre-purchase! Childcare will be provided for children under 3.
Camp 54 is a weekend camp experience in October for 4th & 5th graders at Forest Home in Ojai. Camp 54 gives us the opportunity to help our older elementary schoolers transition into 6th grade and Calvary MSM. It is a fun weekend full of worship, games, small group activities, and most important…God’s Word! Camp 54 is a great place to meet friends, have fun, and experience God in a new way.
