COVID-19 UPDATE: We will be providing nursery, toddler room, and classes for 2 & 3 year-olds, 4 & 5 year-olds, 6 & 7 year-olds, and 8-10 year-olds. You may drop-off your children beginning at 9:10 AM for the 9:30 AM Sunday morning outside service. Children through age 7 meet in the classrooms inside the building; the 8-10 year-olds meet in the pavilion. Please note that we will not be providing snacks during class. Children 4 and older should wear a mask (we have some available if you don’t have one). We recommend that children bring their own Bibles to class.
Nursery, Toddler Room, 2-3 Year-Old Class:
Babies, toddlers (stable walkers up to 2 years of age), and 2 & 3 year-olds may be dropped off 20 minutes prior to the start of the service on Sunday mornings.
While parents are studying the Bible, verse by verse, the children are studying the same portion of Scripture (usually one week behind) in an age-appropriate setting. This encourages family discussions of Scripture. Sunday morning classes are available for children through age 10. On Wednesday evenings, we do not currently have children’s ministry.

There are many resources available online to help you prepare your lessons for the children. Below are some that are particularly useful:
Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa Children’s Ministry – Access to our primary curriculum with teacher’s guide, supporting materials (word searches, coloring pages, crossword puzzles, etc.) and devotional take-home pages. The site also has additional resources, such as games, crafts, pre-school activities, and more.
Kids Sunday School Place – This website is useful for those chapters that aren’t covered by the Calvary curriculum. As you develop a main point from the verses, you can find helpful aids in their Topical Index. Note: CC Delta has an account with them. You can access some content without logging in, but for full access, please contact your Team Leader for log-in information.
