Kids Church


Welcome to Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa’s Kids Church.


Our vision for Kids Church is to partner with parents by engaging in God's mission to help kids know, love, and follow Jesus. We desire to teach the Gospel in each lesson and see your kids personally know Jesus as their Savior. With God’s empowering and guidance, we endeavor to teach God’s Word so the kids will know who God is and come to love Him with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. In knowing God’s great love for them, our hope is that transformation will occur and kids will have a heart to love others, live out their faith as a witness and testimony of God’s love, and share the Gospel with others.


"But Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.'" Matthew 19:14

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”  Luke 10:27

About Our Program

Kids Church 

During these times, your child will be placed in a small group with other children their age. To find out which room your child will be in, you can visit the Main Welcome Center Kiosk in the Courtyard.


If it’s your first time, we use an automated and secure computerized check-in system for all Kids Church classes. If you would like to pre-register your family prior to visiting Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, you can do so below. 



On Sundays, teachers go through age-appropriate, Christ-centered, chronological Bible Studies that help kids dive deep into the big story of the Bible—God’s plan to rescue His people through His Son, Jesus Christ. From Genesis to Revelation, we celebrate the redemptive plan that unfolds throughout all Scripture. Along with Bible Study time, kids will be participating in fun activities like games, art, videos, music, and prayer to keep them engaged and drawn to Jesus every week.
