Upper Elementary

Our Upper Elementary class is designed for children who are in 3rd – 5th grade.   As in Lower Elementary, kids engage in worship and introductory activities before watching a video lesson from ReThink’s “252 Basics” program. Each lesson has a bottom line (a short but meaningful phrase) that is returned to in each of stations kids visit in small groups. In the small groups, kids participate in games, demonstrations or experiments, memory verse activities, and prayer time. Kids end their time in Calvary Kids with take-home resources focused on a “life app” (a practical application of truth that helps in their everyday lives). Kids need to know how and why something matters before it becomes meaningful. That’s why we connect insights and principles to everyday life, so kids know what it looks like when someone reflects God’s image and follows Jesus. For more information on what your child learns each week and suggestions for talking to your kids about their faith during the day, out and about, over dinner, or at bedtime, check out Studio252.tv or the Parent CUE app, available for iOS and Android. Newsletters are sent home weekly for kids and parents to do together.
