Youth Groups

LAUNCH is Calvary’s youth group for youth in grades 5 and 6. LAUNCH meets once a month on Wednesday nights from 5:30-7:00 pm. Events take place in the youth room and typically include time for snack, Bible study, and an activity or game.

This group is our program’s starting point. It is at these events that we work to provide opportunities for our kids’ faith to really take off. Bible studies last 10 minutes or less and are intentional to dive into who we are as a church and why we do what we do.

LAUNCH is open to all youth in grades 5 and 6 regardless of which church or school you attend!  Click here for this year's LAUNCH schedule.

SAIL is our group for students in 7th and 8th grade. SAIL meets monthly on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-7:00 pm in the youth room. SAIL events include time for food and socializing, Bible study, and fun.

SAIL is where we try to bring the Bible to life. With the understanding of who we are and what we believe, we turn to ask questions such as, “what does this mean for me and my life?”

All students in grades 7 and 8 are invited to SAIL events no matter where they go to school or church!  Click here for this year's SAIL schedule.



“So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven,  but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 10:32-33).

What is Confirmation?

Youth Confirmation is a public rite of the Church that is preceded by a period of instruction designed to help young baptized Christians make a public profession of faith in Jesus Christ and identify with the life and mission of the Christian community. This public profession of faith is made on Confirmation Sunday along with the other youth of one’s confirmation class.

Why is it called Head-to-Heart (H2H) Confirmation?

We want our young disciples to know the Gospel and teachings of Christianity (head) and believe it so that they trust Christ with their lives and find their place of service in His name (heart).

Calvary’s confirmation instruction follows a process of two years, normally occurring during a student’s 7th and 8th grade. Member children of Calvary should enroll, as well as children whose parents are in the process of joining Calvary. We also welcome other students who want to participate.

In order to provide the best environment for connection and growth, H2H focuses on teaching students in the 7th and 8th grade (or above). If you have children of a similar age and desire both to attend H2H at the same time, we encourage you to consider starting your older child a year later.

When does Head-to-Heart Meet?

Head-to-Heart meets on Sundays during the school year. Our usual meeting follows this schedule:

45 minutes for large group teaching by a Pastor or Youth Director

40 minutes for small group gathering with Adult Mentors

5 minutes for a large group closing and prayer

Contact the church office at 317-783-2000 to discuss questions you may have or to enroll your child.

FLIGHT is our space for high school students. This group meets regularly on Sunday evenings from 5:30-7:00 pm. Events for this group include time together as a large group as well as time in small groups where kids are encouraged to discuss what they think and believe on the night’s topic. Beyond Bible study, FLIGHT events include time for the kids to connect over food and games.

FLIGHT is where we challenge our kids to dig deep. It is at these events that we aim to get youth to start building on their Bible knowledge and get them to ask themselves what God is telling them and what they are going to do about it.

FLIGHT events are open to all high school students no matter what school they attend or church they are affiliated with!
