Children’s Ministry

Fill out this volunteer form to help us out!!


Our children are a very important part of the ministry of the Calgary Church of Christ!  With nearly one hundred children in grade twelve and younger regularly attending our church, this is obviously an important focus for the church!  There are a variety of opportunities for children and families to grow together:

Sunday School

Classes are offered, at 10:10 am and also during service at 11:10am, by trained teachers who love both God and the children He made.  There is a class for newborns to Grade 6.  Every class uses Bible-based curriculum, and there are activities and lessons that are age appropriate that present the timeless truths of Scripture in ways that make sense to your kids.  If you want your kids to have a firm foundation to stand on as they grow up in an unstable world, you will want to take advantage of these classes!

 

Youth Worship

Youth Worship is held most Sundays during the second service from September to July and is for ages 4 to grade 4.  The program involves journeying through the bible over a 2 year period from Genesis to Revelation.  We also focus on learning the books of the bible through the ‘66 Club’.  Children can become a member by reciting all 66 books on their own, and they then receive a bible, Tim Horton’s gift card, and public recognition during the Sunday morning service.  The main focus of Youth Worship is music.  The children learn to share God’s love through singing, rhythm and the use of various basic instrumentation.  The children usually have opportunities to perform what they have learned during Sunday morning service, culminating in ‘Showcase Sunday’ held in June.  We are looking to expand the program into other areas such as drama, crafts and storytelling.

Life Groups

Many of our Life Groups are inter-generational.  By that we mean that they include the entire family.  If you want your whole family to learn Biblical truths in an informal home environment, call the church office for more information at 272-2111. There are groups that meet during the week all over the city.

 

While sleeping late can be nice, have you considered the benefits of Sunday School attendance for your child. Here are 10 reasons to make it a priority in your family.

1. Age Targeted Teaching: Where else can your kids get Biblical instruction that’s focused toward their developmental abilities?

2. Friends: In Sunday School, your child will build positive friendships with their peers by discovering God’s Word together.

3. It’s Fun: Sunday School is not Disney Land, but our teachers do work hard to teach the Bible in ways that are relevant and fun for kids.

4. Spiritual Mentors: A dedicated teacher can be a Christian role model who supports you and helps inspire the faith of your child.

5. Systematic Bible Learning: Our curriculum is designed to give a broad foundation, so children will understand how all the parts of Scripture point to Christ.

6. Praying Teachers: Our teachers consistently pray for your child’s faith to grow. Coming to Sunday School gives another occasion for God to answer those requests.

7. Big Reward For a Small Investment: If you’re already coming to church, just come a little earlier. That one change will equal over 800 hours of additional Christian teaching before your child graduates.

8. Send the Right Message: Making Sunday School a priority shows your kids that God’s Word really does matter more than pillow-time.

9. Adult Bible Fellowship: While the children enjoy their class, you can fellowship with other adults in your own Bible study group.

10. You’ll Be On Time: Families who come to Sunday School always get to worship on time. It’s the easiest way to avoid being late.
