Faith Formation and Youth

  • We will have many opportunities as a community for faith formation on Sunday mornings in the coming year. Below are brief descriptions of these opportunities. Click here for more information on what's happening on Sunday mornings (other than worship, of course).

    If you would like to volunteer to help with any of our Sunday morning faith formation programs or have questions, please contact  Brian Hornbecker at

  • Confirmation is the time for youth to pay special attention to their faith at a critical point in their lives. We learn about the most important things in the Bible and in our faith in large groups and build relationships with each other in small groups. We also take field trips to learn about other religions and important life events. Click here for more about our confirmation program.

  • Adult Classes

    We offer occasional adult education classes. Stay tuned here for information about upcoming classes.

  • Mount Calvary youth group (for high school-age youth) meets every Wednesday night during the school year at 7:45 for fellowship time. We also have events like service projects, lock-outs, and lock-ins, as well as one large-scale trip every summer. Click here for more info.

  • As we journey through life, we often rely on people to show us the way. Children are no different, as they look to the adults in their life to help guide them on their faith journey. Mount Calvary feels called to help our children along this spiritual path as they learn and grow. To help with this mission we have developed our Milestone Ministry program, designed to help children and parents through some significant milestones in their life, and to help educate them about what it means to be a person of faith.
