Child Registration Form
Calvary maintains an excellent nursery facility staffed by trained, professional caregivers. Open from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., the nursery is for children ages five and under and is located on the first floor in the Orgill Room. A loving atmosphere, personal attention, and age-appropriate toys, Bible stories, and Bible-based activities are all designed to make the nursery a safe, nurturing place for your child.
Children’s Chapel is an opportunity for children to experience the “Liturgy of the Word” in an easy-to-understand, story format. At the beginning of the 10 a.m. worship service, children follow the “children’s cross” out of the church to Children’s Chapel, which is held in room 203 on the second floor education wing. Children are escorted into church at the time of the Peace to join their families for Communion. Children age three and older are welcome to Children’s Chapel. The liturgy is geared for children age three to seven. Parent participation is encouraged.
Children are welcome at all Calvary worship services. Nursery care and Children’s Chapel are special options for children during worship.
This summer Calvary’s children and youth will participate in The Summer of Service during formation. They will explore the theme of service for others as written in the Bible.
Rising K through 5th grade students will learn through Bible study, fun activities, service projects, and craft projects that we are called to serve others. They will meet in Room 201.
Middle and high school students will learn how they can serve others in Calvary’s neighborhood through hands-on projects as well as problem-solving classes. Class topics include lessons on food deserts, homelessness, Calvary’s physical neighborhood, and Memphis’ environment and ecosystem. This class will meet in the 3rd floor youth room.
By the end of the summer, Calvary’s children and youth will understand how they can help fill the needs of others in our community and spread love in downtown Memphis and beyond. Classes begin June 11.
Calvary Kids Art Camp, for ages 5-10, is very different from your traditional Vacation Bible School. We begin our day in the sanctuary for worship and then spend the day working on some pretty cool art and craft projects. There also will be snack, game, and exercise time. Camp time is 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. and cost is $150 with lunch included. Before/after care will be available (8:30 - 9 a.m. and 4 - 5 p.m.) for $25 for the week. We request a $25 camp deposit by Friday, March 31. Contact Hilary Chipley to reserve your spot. Friends are welcome! We also are looking for youth camp counselors! Youth in grades 6 - 12 are encouraged to volunteer as counselors (camp is free for counselors).
