Sunday Services and Life Groups are the primary way to worship God, honor Him, and grow together here at Calvary. Additional ministries provide a space for age appropriate teaching, more connection, and opportunities to serve at Calvary. Find details below for each ministry and don’t hesitate to reach out to a ministry leader with questions.
3 MONTHS – GRADE 5
Jesus focused kids. Jesus focused families. Jesus focused servants.
Sundays at 9am & 11am
Our heart for Calvary Monterey's Children's Ministry is to create an environment for kids, families, and our servant volunteers to focus on Jesus. We enjoy time together each week in Worship, in the Bible, and in fun! We do our best to remind kids every week that God had a perfect plan from the beginning of time; a plan to show us His love by sending Jesus and because of his great love for us we get to take part of this great plan too.
Important for Check in:
Each family and volunteer will need a KidCheck Account. We use KidCheck to check every child into Calvary Kids. If you need assistance setting up your account, our Sunday team is available before the service to give you assistance. You can also register before hand online with the link below.
We use The Gospel Project by Lifeway. The Gospel Project focuses on making Jesus the center of every story while going through the Bible from the Old-New Testament in the span of 3 years.
Each class has the same story with their own age-appropriate activities that vary from games, crafts and learning how to read the Bible. In addition to our curriculum, 4 Year Olds-5th Grade have a time of worship and each class gets outside playtime.
GRADE 6 – 8
Sunday mornings 9:00am and 11:00am
Tuesday Nights 6:30pm-8:30pm
Our mission is to see middle schoolers come to a complete knowledge of Jesus, united together in love as the church, and encouraged in heart in the midst of discouragement. Our heart is to see Jesus Famous through offering a place where middle school students belong. Middle School can often be a time of change, pressure, and exclusion as everyone is trying to figure out who they are. The Good News, is that we have an incredible message of Love, Inclusion, and Belonging from God in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our Group seeks to model and experience God’s love through studying His Word together, having fun together, making good memories together, and being a welcoming place of love for everyone who attends.
GRADE 9 – 12
Tuesday nights 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Our mission is to see High Schoolers Come to a real and personal relationship with Jesus, under the guiding and working of the Holy Spirit, to be encouraged and challenged to serve the one true God of the Bible in and through the local Church.
The heart behind the High School ministry here at Calvary is to see Jesus Famous. To have a life that simply lives for the one who died for us on the cross. To have a healthy, whole, and biblical understanding of what it means to live as a christian. To be set apart for the gospel and to live a life that is honoring to our God. Life is a gift and full of joy when the purpose of it is realized. Our High School group strives to study with sincerity, live selflessly, and love as Jesus did. We strive to be real and encourage others to live the same. This is a group that is open and real in a world that encourages us to be weary and fake.

Need to know before Arrival/ Check-ins:
This is a safe place for students where there is freedom, but boundaries. A place where they can unplug from the pressures of the social media world and be themselves without judgment. Our leaders will encourage a healthy life that brings students closer to the God that created them. If they have a Bible, have them bring it, and if not we have extras.
Through a Calendar year the HSM may study several books from the Bible both New Testament and old. In-between the verse by verse studies we will cover topical issues such as identity, purpose, and living with a biblical world view to name a few. We strive to teach from the Bible in an expositional, verse by verse fashion that glorifies God and challenges the students.
AGES 18 - 26
We are a small collective of young adults seeking to glorify God in their lives. We come together weekly to seek God in scripture, worship, and prayer. Our gatherings are located in The Grille Restaurant, and we usually begin a little after 7pm enjoying some dinner together. We meet for about an hour and fill that time with singing, prayer, and Bible study, and end the night hanging out.
Our studies are primarily sourced by the Bible. Depending on the time of year, we may be studying a book of the Bible, or a specific topic. Either way, our hope is to approach God’s truth with humility and intentionality.
Please follow us online to make sure that you know what’s coming up this week. We post regularly on Instagram. @cmyoungadults

With a heart to help women of all ages in our church connect, our women’s ministry seeks to help women grow in their love for the Lord and His Word and to be equipped to honor God in their day-to-day life as wives, professionals, mentors, daughters, and sisters. We seek to connect women in rich, life-giving, one-on-one relationships through our mentoring program. We also meet for seasonal Women’s Bible Study and yearly conferences that allow women to get away, get to know other women, and enjoy a time of focused Bible teaching.
All Ages Welcome
Our Regeneration Recovery Ministry is all about bringing hope to the hopeless by leading men and women out of the darkness of life dominating sin into the light of God’s love. We will accomplish this through Worship, Bible Teaching, Tons of Prayer, and "Breakout" groups. Come out on Monday nights to Calvary Monterey from 7 to 9 if you’re looking for Regeneration. The Breakout groups are broken up into 4 categories; Men, Women, Men’s Accountability, and Friends and Family support groups.
All Ages Welcome
The purpose of our Creative Ministry is to put the beauty of the Gospel on full display through art, technology, and creativity. This Ministry includes three teams.
The Music Team serves our church by providing the time and space to Honor God and pursue His Presence through song. When you encounter the living God you cannot leave unchanged.
The Media Team is a group of people who use photos, videos, and social media to capture and share moments of God working in and through our church community.
The Tech Ministry’s role is to aid in the delivery of worship and the teaching. Technology helps us clearly hear and see the gospel message during a Sunday service and allows us to share that same message worldwide.
