As we minister to the children at Calvary Presbyterian Church, we seek to reflect the love, power and hope that Christ gives us. We do not replace the discipleship that is done in family homes; however, we want to help strengthen that discipleship. Our “Calvary Kids” are very important to us and to God! Because of this, our Children’s Ministry will reflect the following important elements:
The children in our church will be “KIDS” in that they will…
K now that they are important to God and us
With this in mind, all parts of our Children’s Ministry are…
1. "Inward" as our children are taught God's word and are encouraged to apply it to their lives. (Psalm 119 10-11) (Eph. 3: 17-19)
2. "Upward" as our children are given opportunities to worship God and grow in their love for him. (Psalm 100)
3. "Outward" as our children are encouraged to serve God and others with the talents and gifts that come from Him. (Rom. 12: 4-7)
We strive to incorporate all of these elements into our children’s activities. We do not want our events to merely be activities; we also want them to have a God-centered purpose. We also have child protection procedures and guidelines in place so that all of our children are safe. Should you have any questions about our Children’s Ministry, please contact us. We would be more than happy to assist you!

Boys Foundation-eers Club 2018
Began November 9: Foundation-eers Club for Boys
Foundation-eers is a club for boys, ages 6-13. The goal of the club is to build faith and Christian fellowship between boys, bonding over our shared love of LEGOS.
We will meet the second Friday of each month, 6:30 PM - 8 PM. Josh Skoudis will lead the meetings, assisted by junior building mentor, Danny Anilonis, and supervised by an elder or male adult member of Calvary Church.
Each meeting will be broken down as follows:
• Opening Devotional
Josh will read a devotional for boys, using it as a stepping-stone for further discussion.
• Building Together
We will build a city together out of LEGOS. Each meeting, we will add on to the city. This will be a shared building project in which the boys will be using teamwork to build something together. Josh and Danny will be building alongside the boys and helping them as needed.
We will provide snacks for the boys to enjoy together.
• Building Side-by-Side
This will be an opportunity for the boys to express their creativity by building their own projects with their own LEGO bricks while engaging in constructive fellowship side-by-side.
If your boys are interested in joining the Foundation-eers, please sign up on the sheet in the Narthex or contact Josephine Skoudis at email@example.com or at (908) 692-4685.
We look forward to building faith, fellowship, and friendships together!
