Our desire is to teach our children about Jesus in an environment made for children and at their level.

"Start the children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." ~ Prov. 22:6

Volunteers Are Needed for Sunday Morning Children's Ministry

To sign up for Summer (June through August) Sunday Nursery/Preschool, SIGN UP HERE.

Welcome to summer at Calvary Chapel!

Our regular children's programs for ages K-5 take a break for the summer. Classes for K-5 can enjoy the service with their families in the sanctuary. There are children's ministry bags in the foyer for these children to use during the service. These bags include a children's bulletin which (usually) coincides with the message being taught that day, a small craft, and a snack. Please feel free to grab these for your kiddos before the service!

We will continue to offer a nursery and preschool class for ages 0-5 throughout the summer during the second service.

Wednesday night CKZ (Calvary Kid's Zone) as well as nursery/preschool are not offered during the summer months.

At Calvary Chapel, your child's safety is of utmost importance to us. For any child who is participating in any area of children's ministry, including nursery and preschool, we use a program called KidCheck. It streamlines check-ins as well as provides a safe drop off and pick up system. In addition, it includes any relevant information regarding allergies and/or medical warnings.

Your KidCheck account can be created here:

You will check your child(ren) in either on a computer in the foyer using your phone number, or by downloading the KidCheck mobile app on the App Store or Google Play Store. When you check in using the app, you will find your child label and guardian label printed from the KidCheck Hub in the foyer.

Wednesday evenings 6:30-7:30 pm, September through May. CKZ program serves children kindergarten through 5th grade. All children and teachers 0-5th grade must check in at the station in the foyer before going to class.

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a vital outreach ministry of Calvary Chapel Bemidji and helps fulfill The Great Commission as found in Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Our vision in VBS is sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with young children in our local community with the hope of establishing long term relationships with them and their families.

VBS meets for one week at the beginning of the summer months. We also have an extension program that meets monthly, from 6:30-8:00 pm on the third Friday of the month, October through May.
