Loving God, Loving His Word, Loving People

Calvary Chapel Garland recognizes how important it is for children to be provided with a loving, nurturing, and age-appropriate environment in which they can be cared for by people who believe children are important to God.

God is concerned about the spiritual, physical, and emotional development of our children.

He wants children to grow up in homes that encourage faith and faithfulness.

God also wants His Church to be a safe and loving environment where children can grow in their knowledge of Him.

We understand this work is vital and a great responsibility.

Each teacher has received a special call on his or her life from the Lord Jesus to minister to His precious little lambs.

Calvary Chapel's Children's Ministry is committed "to create an environment where children can personally fall in love with their Savior, Jesus Christ, and mature in their faith to share His Gospel and serve Him for their entire lives."

 

Children's Church takes place during adult services each Sunday and Wednesday.  It begins with children's worship with music and movement that points to and glorifies the Lord and then children go to classes where the Bible is taught scripturally at appropriate developmental levels.
