After School Program

Three years ago the Lord gave me direction to start an After School Program at Calvary Chapel Oceanside. We offer classes three times a year during the school year. The classes are 6 weeks long and are held once a week. We are blessed to have a very talented and giving body. The classes offered are all taught by the members of Calvary Chapel Oceanside. We started with 3 classes and now offer up to 11 classes. These are some of the classes that we have been able to offer: Art, baking, martial arts, hula praise, choir, drama, math skills, reading, quilting, scrapbooking and skating.

This year's dates are:
January 15th- February 19th
April 1st-May6th
October 7th- November 4th

My Call to Children's Ministry

When I was first called to serve in children's ministry in 1986, I was a brand new believer. I was so nervous when I taught the children that very first Sunday. I had never before read any of the bible stories and was worried that the children may know more than me. I would read the word and prepare my lessons and I realized how much I loved the word. I was learning the word right alongside of the 1st graders that I was teaching. I cherish the memories of those early days, as I would discover the goodness of God with every word that I read.
