Youth Ministry

"Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." - 1 Timothy 4:12

Calvary has many options for our youth to be involved, starting at a young age and taking them into adulthood.

Youth-Release-Time

Learning to make your relationship with God an everyday relationship and not just a Sunday Morning relationship, is especially important. Calvary Jr. and Sr. Leagues teach kids to have that daily time with God through reading and studying the Bible. It also explains the importance of daily devotionals and prayer time, as well as service to God and others. Additionally, we stress the importance of healthy relationships with their family and friends. The Jr. and Sr. Leagues provide a Youth Group Family for our 6th -12th graders, that helps build up those healthy relationships.
