Who we are

Our trained staff loves Jesus and loves serving kids in a way that is centered towards their needs as they grow in their walk with Christ!  All volunteers go through an extensive background check and interview process.

What we Do

We plant the seeds of the Gospel into the lives of kids through prayer, worship, games, crafts, and Bible study. Your kids will enjoy themselves while they are here, and of course, we like to have fun too!

When we Meet

Kids from infancy to fifth grade are welcome to join us during every normal worship service at Calvary Tucson.  Check-in opens 20 minutes before service. Greeters are happy to walk you through the check-in process.

Visitor / First Time Info

Welcome! It is our absolute joy to serve you and your family this week at church.  When you arrive at our church campus, ask any greeter or security team member for directions to our kids building. Our team will walk you through the check-in process and answer any questions you have about our program, what we teach, and your child’s safety.

Our staff is background checked and interviewed by Pastoral staff to ensure every child is safe and will hear the Word of God at our services!  If you would like to take a tour or meet your child’s teacher, please send an email to Pastor Matt ([email protected]) and we can set that up for you!
