For Preschool through Sixth grade
We are using Living the Good News, a lectionary based curriculum. The mission is to shape and transform lives and communities though shared experiences of the Sunday readings. This vision guides every activity, reading and suggestion in the program. Check out the website www.livingthegoodnews.com.
For young people – Seventh and Eighth grade
This class will be using the lectionary based programs of Living the Good News and Faith Lens. They will have discussions about the lectionary and be active in completing projects in the church. At the completion of this two year class, the young people will come away with a strong sense of being a part of the Calvary Church community.
For young people – grades Nine and older
This post confirmation group meets in the conference room with a team of adult leaders. Various lessons and activities are incorporated each week.
Calvary’s Youth Group has a Middle School youth group for grades 6 through 8 and a Senior group for those in grades 9 through 12. Please check the website and the Sunday bulletin for information about meeting times.
New participants in any of these classes are always welcome

Inquirers’ Class – To be a Christian means to live
life in response to God, and the Episcopal and Anglican tradition offers a
broad and comprehensive way to live out that life. This series of classes is
designed for adults who wish to explore what it means to be a Christian in the
Episcopal tradition. It is ideal for those who would like to engage their faith
more fully, deepen their understanding of the Episcopal Church, or who are
seeking to be Confirmed or Received into the Church.
