Kid's - BIGtime

Hey Kid's... What time is it? It's BIGtime!

“Seeking, Connecting, and Guiding Kids into a Dynamic Belief in God.”
 

Imagine!

 ...a child-targeted kid’s ministry where the Bible is creatively taught and expressed, where its truths are presented in relevant ways, where shepherding kids is intentional, where kids are safe to be who they are and ask questions, and where discovering God’s truth is fun.

Guess What!

...it’s happening right here at Calvary Christian Church. While Mom and Dad are enjoying a celebration in our main auditorium the kids get to have their own program that is relevant to them.

BIGtime Sundays

Our BIGtime Kid's Ministry is designed for children from 0 through grade 5.

We have a fully equipped and supervised Nursery facility which is suitable for children aged 0 - 24 months.

Our toddlers class is for age 2, and our Preschool covers ages 3-5.

Children grades K-2 and 3-5 are each in their own respective program where they will hear a message based on a Bible point using a variety of mediums such as puppets, videos, actors or random craziness.

Our Jr. leadership program involves young people from grade 6 - 8 and gives them an opportunity to serve in an area they are comfortable with. Many have been mentored under leadership in childrens ministry and become leaders in our church as a result.

Because of our 2 Sunday morning services we have  a couple of options of how we can serve you and your children.

In both the 9am and 11am service children aged 0-5 can check in right away and go straight to their respective rooms.

For kindergarten to grade 5 you can choose which program most suits your family. In our 9am service children K-5 join you, as the parent, in the praise &worship and prayer portion of the service. After which a leader in our children's department will come to the front, call the kids forward and pray for them before leading them down to their appropriate program.  In the 11am service children K-5 check in to the kids department right away for their own version of praise & worship and planned program.

In all services, check-in is available 30 minutes prior to the service in the kids area which is in the lower part of the church building. After being checked in kids are dropped off and picked up in their age appropriate room. Children will not be released from their rooms without parents.

BIGtime Mid-Week

From September through April kids grades K-5 can register to be a part of our mid-week programs where they will experience games, crafts, snacks, music, and more.  We have two mid-week programs designed for grade K-3 and grades 4-5. These programs run on Wednesday nights from 6:30pm-8pm.

Special Events

Throughout the year we have special events for kids and their families that you will not want to miss. This could be anything from a family day at the waterslides in the summer, to an indoor campout at the church, to a kids bowling night. Some of our main events include:

BIGtime Fair - happens every October 31st. We strive to give parents and kids alike an alternative to Halloween and the traditional door-to-door candy collecting. You don’t have to wonder where the candy is coming from at the BIGtime Fair. And the spookiness of Halloween is done away with. It is a family event that the whole family can enjoy and rest assured knowing that it is safe, fun and a great way to get to know others in this community.

VBS - VacationBibleSchool is a fantastic week-long day camp where kids experience loud and lively main sessions before traveling in small crews to different stations all over the church. These stations coincide with the theme of the day through crafts, games, movies, expeditions, skits, snacks, and more. Each year is a new theme and the church is decked out to the nines to make sure the kids truly experience learning about God.  Past years have included, Scuba (an underwater adventure), LavaLavaIsland (survivor-style island fun), Serengeti Trek (a trip through the African plains).
