Children's Ministries at Calvary
Children are a gift from God! Calvary desires to be faithful to God by teaching and discipling our children to know and rejoice in the God of the Bible. Our prayer is that every child in our church would have the testimony that Paul described of Timothy in II Timothy 3:15: "from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith, which is in Jesus Christ." Our children's teachers and leaders are prayerfully committed to teaching our children the Word of God, with the passionate desire that they come to faith in Christ Jesus and worship Him with their lives. To see all of our children's ministries, scroll through the list below.

Children’s Foundations are small group Bible studies, organized by developmental ages and taught by committed, godly teachers. These ministries are a priority at Calvary to supplement our parents' training and equip our children for lives founded on the Word of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ—more and more people, more and more LIKE JESUS (Colossians 1:28-29). We use Children’s Desiring God and the Gospel Project for Kids as our core curriculums, with a pre-arranged scope and sequence. Approximately 75% of those who attend our church are an active part of Foundations. Foundations significantly helps those who participate to understand the main point of the Bible and how its many parts fit together.
Sunday at 10:00am, during service
To quote John Piper, ”God-centered worship is supremely important in family life and in the life of the church." Calvary believes this. Children's church is a strategically God-focused and nurturing time for children from 2 years old to 1st grade. Children are dismissed after the song and praise portion of our worship service to go to their classes.
WRE (Weekly Religious Education)
WRE occurs on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school day, from 1PM – 3PM. The ministry is for 4th grade students at the 4 elementary schools in Plainfield. Our goal for this program is that students walk away from with a fuller understanding of the Bible, the revealed character of God, and the life of Jesus Christ, with great joy in the salvation that God provides by the Holy Spirit, through His Son, Jesus Christ.
