New summer resource for kids & families
See below for upcoming special events!
For information about our weekly Sunday programs and Awana Bible Clubs, visit Children's Ministry.
Calvary is providing a NEW RESOURCE to help parents teach their kids sound doctrine through catechism.
We Believe: Catechism for Calvary Kids & Families is based on our 16 Articles of Faith and provides questions and answers to learn the key biblical truths we believe. This summer project is for families with children currently completing grades 3–5.
Catechism is a summary of key doctrines learned through questions and answers!
So, how do you do catechism?
Catechism simply provides an interactive activity that helps us learn and remember the major truths of Scripture in our hearts and minds. Begin with the first section of the Student Handbook. Read over the questions and answers with your child and then quiz them. Do this consistently for a number of days until they can recite all the right answers. After they have learned one section, proceed to the next. Review what they have already learned each week. Kids typically love the interaction and the challenge! Make it fun with Family Night activities (see the Parent Handbook for those how-tos)!
Celebrating your accomplishment
After your child has completed all 16 catechism sections at home, make an appointment by August 31 with a Calvary pastor, Children's Ministry leader, or your child's Zone 345 teacher to approve the work your child has accomplished. Once your child has successfully recited the answers, you will receive an invitation to the celebration family lunch in September. Your child will also receive a special gift to mark his/her accomplishment!
- June – Catechism books available! Begin learning the Q&A
- August – Present your catechism work to a pastor or ministry leader by August 31
- September – Enjoy a special celebration lunch on Sunday, September 8 for kids and families who have completed the catechism
