We strive to connect kids to God by cultivating a personal faith in Jesus Christ through biblically sound teaching and relational discipleship.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” ~ Matthew 19:14

The security and safety of your children is extremely important to us. We require all children and volunteers to check in on KidCheck before entering their classrooms. Parents/guardians must use their guardian receipt to pick up their children from a classroom. Click here to create a KidCheck account.

Screening for all children’s ministry volunteers includes a criminal background check, training, and interviews by our leadership team.

VBS Outreach

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.
