Children’s Sunday School

The Moravians believe firmly in spiritual and biblical education. It forms the very foundation from which we lead our lives and participate in worship. Here at Calvary Moravian, we have a class or study group for every age, offering a variety of ways to learn and fellowship. The following are short descriptions of those classes, as well as who leads each class. Additionally, each classroom teacher, small group leader, staff member, and weekly volunteer is part of Calvary’s Safe Sanctuary Policy and Program – ensuring safety for all our children, youth, and vulnerable adults. If you have further questions, would like more specific information on our classes, or would like to see a curriculum copy, please contact:

Calvary Nursery

The nursery at Calvary is for newborns to 2 yrs of age and is located on the 2nd floor, in the Early Childhood wing. Our Nursery Attendant, Rachel Robinson, along with members of our congregation, staff the nursery for Sunday School, all worship services, our Wednesday Evening Calvary @ The Table ministries, and any special services that are held throughout the year. We are also equipped with an on-site beeper system that keeps the parents connected with the nursery should any emergencies or special needs arise.

Toddler Class

(Sunday mornings, 9:45-10:45am)

Our Toddler class is for ages 2 – 3 yrs and is located on the 2nd floor in the Early Childhood wing. This class uses the SPARK Lectionary Curriculum to begin teaching our youngest members biblical fundamentals. The lessons each week correspond to the Revised Common Lectionary – which Calvary uses in worship as well. This allows children to develop a connection from the classroom to our morning worship time, helping them get more out of both! This class is led by Ginni Baker.

Early Elementary Class

(Sunday Mornings, 9:45-10:45am)

This class is specifically designed for children ages 4 – 6 yrs and is located on the 2nd floor in the Early Childhood wing. They continue the use of the SPARK Lectionary Curriculum (as described above) and incorporate many hands on crafts, music and games into their weekly learning. This class is led by Jessica Childress.

Elementary Class

(Sunday Mornings, 9:45-10:45am)

Our Elementary class focuses on those children ages 6 -10 yrs of age and is located on the 2nd floor in the Early Childhood wing. And, like the other age groups, they also use the SPARK Lectionary Curriculum which continues to teach alongside worship each week, and keeps families with multiple children in varying classes studying the same lessons on their individual levels. This class is led by Kristie Pristas.

Milestones and Stars

In addition to our children’s weekly curriculum, we have also implemented the Moravian Church Milestones and Stars education program. This program integrates into all our weekly children’s classes, teaching fundamental and formative scripture passages, songs, prayers, and creeds that form the basis for our lifelong walk of faith. Take a look at all the Moravian Stars hanging in the 2nd floor hallway to see our progress!
