Please read below for more information on all of the exciting events happening in Calvary’s Children’s Ministry this Summer!
Summer Schedule 2018
Children's Camp | May 30 - June 2
Children’s Camp is a week during the Summer that we get to spend teaching kids about the gospel while having fun! This year, we are partnering with CrossPoint, church in Trussville, AL and Bethel Church from Moody, AL at Camp Lee in Anniston, AL. In a wooded, secluded camp, there are ziplines, a pool, canoes, games, worship, snacks, food, cabins, gaga ball, volleyball, etc. The reason we do camp is so our kids can see that there are other kids that worship the same God, and worshiping God is a great thing.
Our camp theme this year is “No Leftovers.” We will be discussing the importance of giving God our best selves, rather than giving Him our leftover time.
We will depart from Calvary at 8:00am on Wednesday, May 30th. The 1st – 4th graders will return to Tuscaloosa on Friday, June 1st at 6pmwhile the 5th and 6th graders will be return on Saturday, June 2nd at 6pm.
The cost for the trip is $75/night + $10 for canteen snacks. Parents are more than welcome to join us as a chaperone! The cost for parents is $75.
Vacation Bible School | June 18 - 21
Vacation Bible School is our biggest evangelical event of the year! Kids from Calvary and around the community come together for a week of organized fun. Each child will be placed in a small group and will then rotate through five different engaging stations each day (Recreation, Music, Bible Discovery, Craft/Missions, and Snack/KidVid Cinema). At the end of the week, we celebrate with a family pool party at the North River Yacht Club pool!
This year, we are using Group’s VBS curriculum called “Shipwrecked.” We will be focusing on the truth that God will always carry us through life’s storms.
VBS check-in begins at 8:30 each morning and pick-up will be at 12pm.
T-Shirts are available in 3 colors for $10 each! Sizes available are YXS-A3XL.
