We love children at Calvary Belmar.
Jesus loves children, in fact, He said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” (Luke 18:16-17) And so, we believe one of the most important things we can do as a church is to invest in the next generation and to help our children grow in their relationship with Jesus.
We have several different age groupings for our kids on Sunday mornings.
We love babies, and our servants love babies too! We know it can be hard to even make it to church when you are in that non-sleeping stage, and our heart is just to bless you in this stage in your parenting. We have a great group of nursery volunteers who love to spend time playing with and holding babies.
Toddlers – 3 Years
What a fun stage the toddler and pre-pre-k ages are! Kids exploring and playing and singing and having fun. We love to have fun with our toddlers up through 3 years olds. This is the perfect age to begin building those foundations of faith, and so we have a short lesson and craft time with them as well.
Pre-K – K & 1st – 5th Grade
Our Sunday Kid’s Church services are a time where we have fun but our primary focus is to teach God’s word to children, and to set a foundation of belief in the word of God. We have quarterly memory verses, crafts, and games! We want to have fun with Kids Church and glorify God at the same time. It is a fun atmosphere for 4 years old-5th grade.
