We provide nursery, toddler room, and classes for 2-3 year-olds, 4-5 year-olds, 6-7 year-olds, 8-9 year-olds, and 10-12 year-olds. You may drop-off your children 15 minutes before the start of service (Sundays & Wednesdays). We encourage children to bring their own Bibles to class, but we have some available in each room to use that day.
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 15 minutes prior to the start of service. These classrooms are on the main floor of the building.
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. Children may be dropped off up to 15 minutes prior to the start of service. The 4-5 class meets in the multi-purpose room directly off of the lobby. The 6-7 class, 8-9 class, and 10-12 class meet in classrooms in the upstairs area of the building.
Sunday morning & Wednesday evening classes are available for children through age 12.

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.
