CALVARY KIDS AT HOME

If you are unable to join us on campus, we are still bringing our weekend Calvary Kids service to your home. Each Saturday, we post a new lesson that includes games, music and Bible stories. Join us by clicking the video to the left!

CALVARY KIDS ON CAMPUS
SUNDAY 9AM & 11AM

At Calvary Kids, we have spent much time putting a plan in place to make sure families feel comfortable returning. Our staff and volunteers will be wearing masks and are screened before serving. Temperature checks are given to all children at check-in and we encourage children over the age of 3 to wear a mask. If you do not have one, we will have one available for you at check-in. In order to maintain a clean environment, thorough sanitizing will take place between services.

Our weekend services are designed with children in mind! We offer our Calvary Kids services on Sundays at 9am and 11am. Check-in and pick-up is located outside to the left of the sliding doors. Weekly activity and crafts will be outdoors at tables with plexiglass. Worship, Bible story video and review game will be in Room 1108. Group free time with be outdoors on front lawn.

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.

Throughout our entire service, our Safety Emergency Response Team (SERT) will have designated personnel to monitor the outdoor activities of our Elementary ministry to ensure your child’s safety at all times.

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.

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. 

For more information on baptism for children or to sign-up to attend one of the classes, contact Stephen Millage at stephen.millage@calvarywestlake.org or 818.575.2240.

CAMP BOOST

Calvary has created an extra-curricular enrichment program for elementary students. The program allows families to elect two-day or four-day weekly options with daily programming to help boost what has been lost throughout this season.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS)

Incoming Kindergartners through 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.
