Parent Information

It is our desire to partner with you to disciple your teenager. In order for that to happen, communication is key!  We have a number of avenues for you to stay connected:

Parent Emails

We send out a monthly Parent News email highlighting events, series overviews, and other important information for parents. Click here to subscribe.

Parent Meetings

At the beginning of the ministry year, we invite you to come and learn more about Calvary Student Ministry's vision and values, upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and meet the CSM Staff. Our "Meet the Leader Night" will be Wednesday, September 7. This will be a night for parents to meet their student's Leaders and Coaches. If you missed this meeting, make sure to check our parent email for any missed information, or contact any of the CSM Staff with questions. There will be additional meetings throughout the year and we encourage parents to attend!

Parent Involvement

Parent Volunteers are vital to our ministry at CSM! By volunteering with us periodically this year, you will be living out two of Calvary Church’s Values as you GROW with God’s People and INVEST in God’s Work

We are looking for the following volunteers:

Hang Time: These volunteers chaperone throughout the school year from 3pm – 5pm once a month and 2pm – 4pm in the summer. The goal is to give the students a time of informal fellowship.

Big Events: When we have larger events, these volunteers are able to help with administrative tasks, snack setup, check-ins and even helping with the Winter Retreat! We will reach out when events are happening to see who is available and clarify the days and times we need volunteers.

Guest Connections for CSM (Sunday AM): We need help before and after the 9:30am service at the CSM window. This volunteer will help students with questions, sign in new students, and hand out and collect papers as needed.

First Wednesday: CSM likes to treat our Leaders and Coaches on the first Wednesday of every month during the school year from 5pm – 6pm with a delicious treat and coffee. We need people to help us with supplying the treats and making the coffee for our wonderful volunteers.

If you have any interest in investing in CSM as a Parent Volunteer, please complete this form. If you have any questions about any of these serving opportunities, please reach out to Whitney Albright.

Student Baptism

Students who want to be baptized should pick up a Baptism Packet from the CSM Window on a Wednesday night or Sunday morning. A Student Ministry staff member will give your student directions to walk through this process with a parent. Parents, we encourage you to teach your children the meaning and significance of baptism. It is important to remember the initiative to be baptized should come from your student, and we encourage you to support their decision (lovingly nudging them from time to time, if necessary, but not rushing them through the process).

Are you looking to for ways for your teen to get involved?
