Awana

Awana meets every Friday night from 6:00—8:00 during the school year (you might want to call first) for ages 3 through 6th grade. The Awana Team is a group of the most fun people you'll find anywhere!

Awana is a nondenominational ministry that assists churches in reaching children and teenagers with the gospel of Jesus Christ and training them to serve Him. It is a ministry that is all about fun with a purpose — to win and grow kids for Christ!

The acronym Awana comes from the first letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed which is taken from the Bible in 2 Timothy 2:15 which says, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”

Awana began in 1950 as a youth program at the North Side Gospel Center in Chicago, Illinois. Lance Latham, the church pastor, worked with Art Rorheim to develop a program that would appeal to young people, reach them with the gospel of Christ and train them in the Lord’s work. Other churches heard about the success of the Awana program and asked if they could use it. By 1960, Awana had registered 900 clubs. If you would like more information on AWANA, please click HERE

Today, there are more than 10,000 churches in the United States that have Awana clubs. There are clubs in all 50 states. Awana can also be found in over 3,000 churches in 110 other countries.

Clear, consistent presentation of the gospel.

Bible memory – our cornerstone.

Circle games exclusive to Awana

A fun approach to learning God’s Word

Leadership training that is second to none

The church leaders of tomorrow trained to serve today

Childrens Ministry

For More Information: Click Here

“Putting Children in Touch With God.”

Children at Calvary Chapel are a number one priority. They are a present blessing and our future hope. We are thankful for all of the children that God brings to the church and we’re prayerful that each one will come into a dynamic relationship with the living God. Our children’s church and Sunday School program is going somewhere. We have a goal.

In many ways our vision for children is no different than our vision for adults. We hope to have the best taught, most loved, effective in school and community children possible. We have a wonderful team of committed, faithful and informed teachers for all our children’s ministries. We are constantly reviewing and re-evaluating our programs to insure that they are accomplishing our goals.

The vision of our church is characterized by the consistent verse by verse teaching through the entire Bible. We believe that the Bible teaches us who God is and how He would be worshipped. Our goal is to teach the Bible to the children God has entrusted to us.

Nursery, Pre-School and Kindergarten

Our nursery and pre-school are staffed by volunteer parents and church members. In order to serve in any of our children's ministries we require an application with personal references and is subject to background checks. We are eager to provide the highest levels of security and safety for the children in our midst. Parents using the nursery are approached to occasionally share in the care of the children participating.

We have a pre-school class and kindergarten class during adult worship. Our worship services are designed with adults in mind and our children's classes are designed with age appropriate lessons.

1st thru 6th Grade

When a child in the church enters first grade they begin a journey through the entire Bible that will take them six years. Week after week the teachers teach the children book by book through the Bible. Classes occasionally break from the routine of going book by book through the Bible doing special studies and projects during Christmas season, Easter, Mother’s Day, special programs of evangelism or guest ministries. The consistent overall program however is the consistent teaching of the Word of God.

Sunday Mornings at 8:00 am - Child care only is available for under 5 yrs. of age at this Service.

9:30 & 11:15 am Service - Children Four years old through 6th grade will begin their class immediately in the "Kids Live" worship area downstairs, from which they will go to their respective classes.

What Hands Of Youth is an opportunity for young adults to get the Word of God and have fun while doing it. So that they can see their calling is different for each and every person that goes to sunday school.

New Commendment Mens Ministry

Click HERE To Sign Up For New Commandment Men's Ministry

The New Commandment Mens Ministry at Calvary Chapel serves people with long term needs in our church and community. The men form teams to permanently adopt the widowed, single parents and disabled.

Teams are normally comprised of four men each and each man is asked to donate three hours of time, one Saturday morning a month, from seven to ten. On a typical service day, all the teams meet at the church for prayer and bible study from seven to eight a.m. Then they break up into their preassigned teams and go and work in the home of their care reciever from eight to ten a.m.

The Men do basic chores around the home such as fix leaky faucets, clean windows, haul trash etc. At the end of their time, the men gather around their care reciever and pray with him or her. Each month, the team returns to the same care receiver, so their ministry to him or her extends over months and years.

No skills are necessary to serve in this ministry, but men with trucks are especially welcome! Contact Dave Allen at (860)444-4000 or email at blowingsand@att.net

MISSIONS & LOCAL OUTREACH

Why Do Overseas Missions When There is So Much Need at Home?

Our church since its inception has put a priority on “missions.” The word missions doesn’t appear in the Bible, but the concept does. I have a friend that uses the term “world evangelization.” I think that better describes what missions is. When people hear that some friends are moving to other places and foreign lands and that money is being sent to people and places we know little about, the question is frequently asked, “why do we support ministries there when there is so much need at home?” It’s a question that deserves an answer. We’ll give two reasons.

First, missions (or world evangelization) is not about need, but obedience. At the end of each Gospel and in the beginning of the book of Acts we find Jesus telling His disciples to “Go.” Obedience to Jesus Christ includes going, telling and making disciples. In fact primary obedience seems to have more to do with the spreading of the Gospel than it does with personal growth. As we “abide in Christ” and submit to the work of the Holy Spirit, He will conform us to His Image. An obedient Christian and an obedient church “goes.”

In the 1600’s a group known as the Moravians took this command seriously and attempted to “tithe” their congregations to the cause of world missions. They attempted to send one out of ten of their people to those who were without a Gospel witness. They also started a prayer meeting, that went on seven days a week, twenty four hours a day. This prayer meeting actually continued for one hundred years. In order for missions to be successful, it requires deliberate action on the part of the leaders and the people. Our tendency is to think about ourselves. God wants us to think about others and be outward. He’ll take care of us.

The second answer to the question, “why do we support ministries there when there is so much need at home?” is that the need at home isn’t as great as we might be lead to believe. Jesus boiled the law, the Ten Commandments and the Christian lifestyle down to two commands. One, “love the Lord with all of your heart, all of your mind, all of your heart and all of your strength.” The second He said was just like that, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” James tells us that true religion and undefiled before the Father is this: To visit widows and orphans in their affliction and to keep yourself unstained from the world.”

We live in the United States and if you’ve had the opportunity to travel throughout the world, you know there is no place like the USA. We live in the lap of luxury. No doubt we are a nation blessed by God. America also for the last several hundred years has been the primary missionary sending agency in the world. God has given us great wealth, but even wealth is a stewardship. If we use what He has given us for His purposes, we are obedient and He is honored.

Today the United States has 90% of all the full-time Christian workers in the world, but only comprises less than 5% of the world’s population. The other 95% percent of the world spreads about 10% of the full-time Christian workers. There are literally billions of people in the world who have yet to hear a clear presentation of the Gospel. Many people groups have not had the Bible translated into their native tongues. Yet, we have over a hundred “Study Bibles” to choose from and a great number of translations. We even argue over which translation is best. Millions of people could not go to a church if they wanted to . There are none near them. Millions die daily never having heard the mention of the name of Jesus.

The United States is unbelievably wealthy. I remember one time sitting in the home of a pastor in Bluefields, Nicaragua. I was wearing a pair of Wolverine work-boots that I paid $70 for. As I was sitting there, he was telling me about the gracious hand of God towards their ministry. He told me how month after month the Lord had provided the $35 rent required for the house he was living in that doubled as the church. A moment later, his attention turned to my shoes. “Wow, those are really nice boots,” he said, “what does something like that cost?” I was so embarrassed and mumbled out, hoping he wouldn’t actually hear me, when I had to state that my shoes cost two months rent. I left my boots there.

A pastor friend of mine in Nicaragua once told me that of all of the people working with the church there, many of whom received no salary at all, had never been on a retreat or a vacation. Ever. He said that in their lifetime they probably never would.

In the United States many of us, make in a week, what a banker in the third world would make in a year. Many of the products he buys cost the same as what you pay. The life expectancy in many of these nations is short. Some only expect to make it into their 50’s, possibly their 60’s. Naked children is normal in many developing nations. Food is simple and bought daily.

Jesus said we should, “Work while it is still day, because the night is coming when no man can work.” We have such a great opportunity before us. Let’s do what we can do to make His Name known and show mercy to those we can show mercy to while we still have opportunity.

Every Friday Night there is Youth Group from 6-8pm for both 7-9 and 10—12 grade. We’ve assembled a great team of workers and are committed to equipping youth to live for God in the midst of a world that puts a lot of pressure on them to do otherwise.

* Jr. High Sunday Morning Discipleship Classes. Each year we work with the Jr High to establish their faith in the historic roots of Christianity as well as attempting to help them begin to own and walk out the Christian life for themselves. Each year we cover a variety of topics under the following headings:

YEAR ONE:

“Know What You Believe.” A survey of Christian believers and doctrine. Students are told that they can be baptized at the end of the Sunday School year to publicly express their faith in Jesus Christ.

YEAR TWO:

“Know Why You Believe.” A study of the why’s, difficult and frequently asked questions about Christianity. This class takes an apologetics approach, teaching and training students to give reasonable answers to reasonable questions.

YEAR THREE:

“Live What You Know.” This year we encourage the students to active witnesses and to take ownership of their own Christian life, teaching them the value of personal devotions, personal Bible Study methods, giving, serving, sexual ethics, consistent church attendance and personal witnessing.

* HIGH SCHOOL

High School students meet every Thursday Night to study the Bible together, to pray, to encourage each other and to attempt to be effective Christians in an otherwise hostile world.

In addition to our regular meetings together, we meet throughout the year for outreaches, retreats, special times of worship and prayer together. We have discipleship groups where students can dig deeper in the Word of the God and the Christian life if they desire.

* YEARLY MISSION TRIP

In addition to making various missions opportunities available to teens, we also sponsor a group trip every summer somewhere in the world and invite our teens to participate.
