Children in the Church
Then He took a little child and set him in the midst of them. And when He had taken him in His arms, He said to them, “Whoever receives one of these little children in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me, receives not Me but Him who sent Me” (Mark 9:36-37).
At Calvary Chapel Sierra Vista, we realize the future will one day be in our children’s hands. We want to do all we can to encourage and equip the children in our church to walk with God, both now and throughout their adulthood.
As a church that loves children, we place a high priority on providing a loving, relaxing and clean environment for your children. The goal of Calvary Chapel Sierra Vista Children’s Ministry is to attract children and help their families in laying a foundation of biblical truth and encourage them to surrender their lives to God. We pray that your child’s experience with us is “the best hour” of their week.
Our well-rounded curriculum and activities are geared to minister to children’s needs and help them grow into functional members of the body of Christ. In addition to Children’s Ministry, we offer camps, vacation bible school and a variety of other activities and learning opportunities for children of all ages.
NURSING MOTHER’S ROOM
We provide a soundproof, private room for nursing mothers who would like to hear and observe services in the Main Sanctuary. Located at the southwest corner of the sanctuary, you may enter the Nursing Mother’s Room from the outer hallway. Husbands and siblings are not permitted in the Nursing Mother’s Room and are encouraged to find the age-appropriate class in our Children’s Ministries.
We provide nursery care for children, birth to two years old, with a ratio of one worker caring for every four children.
We offer Children’s Ministry classes that include age-appropriate curriculum for children 3 years of age through 6th grade at all Worship services.
GUIDELINES FOR THE MAIN SANCTUARY
Our Children’s Ministry and Nursery care programs are designed to minister to the children at their age level. We encourage all parents to take advantage of these ministries that we created and specially prepared for your child. We wouldn’t want to rob your child of the opportunity of hearing and seeing God’s Word in action in their very own age-appropriate setting. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you place your children into their appropriate classes so they will benefit from the Children’s Ministry program and not be a distraction or hindrance to God’s Word being taught in the main sanctuary. Our desire is to provide a quiet and distraction-free environment that ensures everyone present the ability to worship the Lord, hear God’s message clearly, and respond when an invitation is given.
