Volunteer in Children's Ministry
Volunteering with Children's Ministry: How can I help?
Hundreds of parents, grandparents, young adults, and individuals with varied gifts and talents serve with our Children's Ministry teams.
Are you gifted in teaching, story-telling, crafts, music, tech, or behind the scenes work? Do you have a passion for sharing Christ's love and the life-changing message of the Gospel with children? If so, please consider serving with us on Sunday mornings especially!
Note: Volunteers must have attended Calvary for at least six months, and all teachers must be Calvary members. Background checks are required.
