Kids Ministry at Calvary Mercer
The vision of CCMC Kids is to point children to a relationship with God and nuture their spiritual growth through the study of His Word. At Calvary Mercer, our kids (infant through 6th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.
We are having an ongoing conversation about how to bring back our Children's Church with safety and effectiveness.
Until that plan emerges, we hope you are blessed by these teacher videos each week. We encourage you to share them with your kids or better yet, watch them together!
Your first visit (when we are back to having Children's Church)
Here's what to expect when visiting Calvary Mercer for the first time:
First, find the area marked by the yellow tablecloth with Calvary Kids logo. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.
Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):
- Parent/guardian name(s)
- Child's name
- Child's birthdate
- Home address
- Phone number
- Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children
Children in Pre-K through 4th grade should be signed-in prior to service. Sign-in begins at 9:45AM. Grades 3 through 6 begin with worship in the sanctuary before being dismissed to their classrooms.
All other children (grades 2 and lower) should report directly to their classroom upon arriving for services and will participate in a time of worship led by their teachers. Parents that are more comfortable keeping their children with them are welcome to have their children attend the adult service.
Nursery // Nursing Mothers Room
Calvary Mercer offers childcare during service for infants. This room is also acts as a nice place to be able to nurse any infants while still being able to view the service.
