Children's Ministry

At Calvary we are excited about ministering to children because Jesus was excited about ministering to children! We have clear Biblical instruction to be passionate about teaching the Truth of God’s life-changing Word, to the next generation. We embrace this ministry, not only within the family at Calvary, but also actively, to the children of our community. We echo the words of Jesus, to “Let the little children come!”

On Sunday mornings, we provide Children’s Church for children ages 4-8. Our aim is to share the gospel with the children and see them come to know the love of our Savior. In addition to the Gospel, we teach the Word of God for application in their lives and on their level. We do not intend to take the place of parental teaching and example, but to assist and confirm what parents are teaching through the week.

Children’s Church will take place while the parents are in the Sunday morning Worship Service. It will be a time of singing, teaching, and crafts and games appropriated for the children. It is a privilege to help parents with the teaching and growth of their children and we want to help in the spiritual development of the children as they begin to mature in Christ.

Also, on Wednesday evenings, we minister to our children and the children of the community through our "Sonseekers" program. We begin at 6:30pm to 7:45pm. Our focus is on the character of God and the Gospel. Our teachers take the children through the Word of God from creation to the cross. We use a 3 year program developed by a mission organization to use in remote places where the people have never heard of Jesus.

Why Choose Calvary?

In choosing a church family, you look for things important to you. Here is what is important to Calvary. »


The purpose of Calvary is to glorify God by obediently making and equipping disciples of Christ, in Bristol and throughout the world. We believe this is accomplished as we grow in our faith and in the knowledge of His Word, and then teach others His truth so that they might live in obedience to Him. This growth in grace is a process that is accomplished in the power of the Spirit and under the authority of God’s Word.

Biblical Preaching

In a world of shifting allegiances and faulty foundations, we seek to stand firmly upon the truth of scripture. The Word of God is preached exegetically, in its entirety. The Bible is the Word of God and we are accountable to it. Everything we believe and do is instructed by the Bible. Everything we teach is rooted in the Bible, giving application to today’s world.


At Calvary, we are a community of Christ followers helping others to follow Jesus. The transformational love of Jesus provides the context of biblical community. Christianity is not a spectator sport. Authentic community is a vital part of the believer’s experience as we engage relationally with one another. We believe Christian growth is best done in the context of community. We bear one another’s burdens and develop deeper relationships. We are strengthened to go forth and be salt and light in our community and city.

The Gospel

The Gospel is the Good News about God who created His world in perfection, man who rebelled against his Creator, and how the Creator gave Himself to rescue His rebellious creatures. The Gospel is central at Calvary. Jesus Christ came from the Father into the world, lived a perfect life that mankind could not, died on the cross in the rebel’s place, was buried and was proved to be the Son of God through His resurrection.
