BUDDY Program

A buddy is someone who comes alongside a child/peer/adult to lovingly help them engage in the various activities at Calvary. Our desire is for your loved one to experience God and participate in the body of Christ to their God-given potential, while you attend our service. Depending upon your desires, and your loved one’s abilities and needs, they can be fully, or partially included in the general children’s activities at Calvary. Buddies are available for our 9am and 11am services (please contact us for midweek buddy needs).

If your child could benefit from having a buddy, please contact us prior to your first visit so we can give you more information, and provide those needs for you.

All infants are integrated into the general children’s program infant room. We offer a buddy to be one on one with your loved one during this time while you attend our service.
