Young Disciples

Young Disciples

 (Ministry for youth in grades 7-12)

The Young Disciples program follows the Marks of Discipleship:  

pray, study, worship, invite, encourage, serve and give.  

Each event or program is geared towards helping youth grow in these areas, 

from confirmation class and faith study, to mission and fellowship events.  

Note:  Due to social distancing restrictions, our youth ministry at Calvary is happening via our Calvary Youth Facebook group, Zoom youth meetings, weekly emails and mentor conversation discussion guides.  

See our church Facebook page for updates, or call the church at 679-1706 if you would like to be added to our email list!
