About Calvary's Family Ministries

Calvary Family Ministries exists to engage children, students, and parents with the gospel of Jesus Christ and to come alongside families to encourage spiritual growth.

Worship from Home

Our Family Ministry team wants to give you more resources to help you at home. In addtion to our online worship gatherings on LIVE.CBCNYC.ORG and Facebook Live each Sunday morning at 10 a.m., we are providing video resources for your child/student. You can find these videos on the Calvary YouTube channel

On Mondays at 7 p.m., our Student Ministry will meet for an online meetup using the Zoom app. In this meetup, we'll work through some discussion questions from the week's video, pray together, and of course, we'll find ways to laugh a lot together. If your student would like to be a part of our Zoom meetup, download the Zoom app and then email Pastor Jim Lokey at JLokey@cbcnyc.org.

The Orange Philosophy

We are an Orange Philosophy Church with a passion for families. Our Family Ministries includes Early Childhood (Birth-Pre-K), Elementary (K-5th grade), and Student (6-12th grade) Ministries.

What we mean by “orange”?

It’s when the influence of the love from the family (red) and the light of the church (yellow) come together to impact the next generation. The Family Ministries at Calvary exists to partner with parents in the discipleship of their children. Through the celebration of faith milestones, movement along the Calvary discipleship pathway, and by creating opportunities for family faith experiences, our Family Ministries Team at Calvary serves parents and families by being a catalyst for discipleship in the home.


We want to encourage, train, and resource you.

Our Family Ministries at Calvary is here to partner with you to help you raise your children to know Jesus Christ and to walk with Him.

Here are some ways we want to do that:

  • Amazon.com Resource List
  • Parent Cue app
  • Parenting Classes to provide encouragement and training
  • Periodic emails with resources to help you

We want to partner with you to reach the next generation for Christ.
