Welcome to Calvary Nexus Kids Ministry

We are a ministry that covers from age 0 to 5th grade. Our ultimate goal in kids ministry is to partner with parents to better disciple the next generation to love God and love their neighbor. We believe that the bible clearly calls all parents to be the primary disciple-makers in the lives of their children. In a culture that prioritizes sports, education, monetary success as the most important things in life, we want to come alongside families in their pursuit of falling more in love with Jesus. From the parent’s heart to their home.

What it’s about


You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might…
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your home,
and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
– Deuteronomy 6:5-7

>> create an environment where parents know that their kids are safe and well-taken care of

>> create a fun/inviting setting where the kids can grow in their love for Christ

>> encourage families to reach out and love their neighbors


The Calvary Nexus Kids Ministry is pretty simple. We want to keep it Christ-centered.

>> upward >> through the lessons and activities, God reveals His grand story, through Jesus, and how each child fits within it

>> inward >> the kids, expressing their love for God, get to make a loud and joyful noise in worship through song

>> outward >> by cultivating an atmosphere where children are captivated by the love of Jesus will then reach out, in love, to their community


As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another,
as good stewards of God’s varied grace.
– 1 Peter 4:10

Explaining Baptism to Children

There are many times when working with kids I am faced with the ever- present question “Why?” It is truly their favorite question to ask. If they see something unfamiliar to them they do not hesitate to ask. And lets be honest, even after an amazing thought out...
