Jesus said

"Let the little children come to me."


Welcome! Raising children is joyous and challenging, so our children's ministry seeks to help parents raise faithful children at every age. We encourage children to become disciples of Jesus Christ by building relationships with them, being examples for them, and teaching them God’s Word.

Cradle Roll

From birth to three years of age, we send new parents age-appropriate resources for teaching their children the faith. We want all children to feel loved by Jesus. How is teaching the faith different at one, two, and three years of age? To find out, sign up! For more information or to sign up for the program, contact the church office.


We love welcoming whole families into worship, but the nursery is always open if you need it. Inside, you'll find a changing a table,  a private nursing area, room for kids to temporarily blow off steam, and a live video feed from the sanctuary so that you don't miss a moment. 


Come visit Calvary Lutheran School's Preschool to find out how your child will be enriched through play that encourages spiritual, social, physical, and cognitive growth. Feel free to schedule an appointment to observe classes or meet with the teachers. For children ages 3-5.
