Calvary works to build strong relationships with children and families, providing support and encouragement when needed.
A number of our other ministries, including youth formation, also serve the children of the Church or in the community. Here are a few initiatives, however, which are solely "kid-focused."
Our Sunday School program is geared towards children age 10 and under. Miss Victoria uses the curriculum Weaving God's Promises to create an engaging, FUN, and meaningful lesson each week. The children are encouraged to attend the worship service with their families, and are then excused to class after Communion.
BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS
Calvary runs an annual Backpack and School Supply drive to benefit children at nearby Madison School in Lombard. Many Lombard families struggle to provide needed supplies, and Calvarians have stepped up to provide backpacks, pens, notebooks, crayons, glue and more to help ensure that our neighborhood’s children are equipped for learning at the beginning of the school year.
KIDS HOPE USA MENTORING
Calvary members work together as mentors and prayer partners helping children in need. Our mentors work with assigned children in relationship building activities with time spent on academics, fun projects and life skills. See Kids Hope USA for more information on this ministry or contact Calvary’s representative, Kate Pierson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
