Let's connect during the week.
Christian faith formation is a lifelong journey. That's why we are doing our best to make it easy for you to connect with God and others in authentic relationships throughout the week. No one person is an island and the faith journey is not meant to be done alone, so are working together to make it easier for you to join a faith community in this COVID season and beyond.
Kids 3 years old through the 5th grade are invited into the KidZone every Sunday where the Bible and its truths come alive through drama, science fun, crazy games, and awesome songs. Join the adventure each Sunday morning in person from 9 to 9:55 or online via zoom at 9:15-9:30 beginning September 12. The Zoom link can be found in the E-news or weekly update!
The KidZone is a place where kids can encounter Jesus and the Bible in crews of up to 5 kids. They travel between stations like Awesome Art, Super Science, Bible Adventures, and SongFest. Through active, hands-on activities, kids learn about Jesus and the Bible each Sunday. KidZone utilizes drama, science experiments, crafts, games, music, singing, and much more to open the world of faith, hope, and love to all kids and their families!

Faith Formation of Adults
LIFE Circles is a small group ministry, that connects 3-8 people to each other and to God's word. We are starting several sermon-based groups in addition to our current affinity-based groups. Our Life Circles meet in seasons (periods of 6 weeks) though some may meet continuously.
LIFE Circles provide a context for people to connect with one another and to build relationships. They provide an opportunity to contemplate faith, experience community, and engage in the Great Commission of making disciples for Jesus Christ. Circles connect weekly, or biweekly, and engage at different levels or intensities, the spiritual disciplines of worship, Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and service. Our LIFE Circles serve the mission of the church, mobilize people for ministry, and are a component of our faith transformation process.
If you would like to join a LIFE Circle simply click on the title. If you need more information concerning LIFE Circles, contact our Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministries Jeff Moeller at 858-755-2855 or email at Jeffmoeller@calvarylutheranchurch.org.
