Children’s Ministries

Welcome to Calvary Kids – the Children’s Ministry of Calvary Chapel Paris!

Children are a gift from the Lord – Psalm 127

At Calvary Chapel Paris, we value and love each child as one of God’s special creations. We believe that the early years of life are critical for spiritual development. Children who are in grade school are beginning to make new and important decisions that will affect their lives forever. We desire for each child to choose the road of the Cross and begin to walk with Jesus through the rest of life.

We offer Children’s Ministry classes during our midweek and weekend church services for infants in the nursery, toddlers, and pre-k through 6th grade children.

Pre-K – 6th grade

The PreK through 6th grade children meet in their age appropriate classes for welcome time, lesson introduction, and Bible verse memorization. They join together for worship then return to their classes for Bible lesson and reinforcement activities and games.


The Calvary Nursery provides loving care for infants and toddlers (birth–24+ months). We see the Nursery as a child’s first step toward a relationship with Christ. As infants and toddlers learn to trust those who take care of them, their hearts prepare to have faith in God, who loves and cares for them.

Check In & Check Out

You can check your child into Children’s Ministry 15 minutes before service starts and pick them up promptly when service ends. Your child’s safety is very important to us, so we require that the parent or authorized adult pick up the children with the guardian tag that has the child’s matching check-in number.


How do I check-in and drop off my child?
Parents, please check in your child at one of the kiosks to receive security tags. Then, drop off your child at the door.

Do I need to bring anything for my baby?
Please bring a labeled diaper bag with disposable diapers, a change of clothes, a labeled pacifier, and a filled and labeled bottle or sippy cup.

What security measures are in place? How can I keep in touch?

  • We will notify you by security number on screen in the sanctuary if you are needed.
  • Children receive a unique security tag each time they are checked in at a kiosk.
  • Parents receive a matching tag with the child’s security number to show at pick-up.

I’m new to Calvary Chapel Paris. Is there anything I should do first?
Welcome! Please stop by the welcome table in the entry foyer. We’ll be glad to help you find the Children’s Ministry classrooms, introduce you to our Children’s Ministry Director, and register your child.
