"Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity." — 1 Timothy 4:12

Calvary High School Ministry is for students in grades 9–12. We build friendships, grow in our relationships with the Lord, study His Word, share the love of Christ and our testimonies with others, and serve Him together.

Come grow with us! Invite friends to any of our programs or events. Connect and check out our latest pics on Facebook.

    Sunday Night Bible Study
    High School 
    6:00 PM, CLC 1400 & Gym

    Sunday Night Bible Study
    6:00–7:15 PM, CLC 1400 & Gym
    January 6 – April 28

    High school students, do you really understand what you believe?

    On Sunday nights, we're focused on understanding the foundations of our faith and asking tough questions: How do you deal with doubt? Does God really exist? Why is there evil and suffering in the world?

    Join us for a time of informal, Gospel-centered Bible study and discussion as we tackle relevant issues and grow in our relationship with Christ. Find out more about what it means to live as a disciple of Christ in today's world, and discover what it means to belong in the kingdom of God.

    Summer Camp
    Student Ministry  |  July 22–26

    Student Ministry Summer Camp
    July 22–26

    Students, this summer we're heading to Camp Bob Cooper, located on the shores of Lake Marion in Summertown, SC. We've got a great week planned for you with dynamic Bible study and tons of activities and recreation at this scenic retreat.

    Our theme for camp week is Just Believe. To replace doubt with faith is essential to walking with God. We'll focus on learning to trust God to overcome doubt, fear, and anxiety. It's an important topic for all students to deal with!

    You'll have time alone each morning to spend with God using a devotional journal, then meet with your small group leader for Huddle Time. This will include scripture memorization and the opportunity for questions and reflection. Then we'll enjoy powerful worship together, followed by breakout sessions led by Calvary pastoral staff.

    Afternoons will be free for swimming, canoeing, basketball, volleyball, Frisbee, the blob, waterslide, climbing wall, high ropes course, paintball, and much more! After dinner, we'll conclude each day with worship and engaging Bible teaching. 

    Cost: $250  


    Roundtrip transportation, lodging, and most meals are included; Monday lunch–Friday breakfast provided. Bring extra money for snacks and drinks during the week ($30–$50).
