What is CKC?
Calvary Kids Club (CKC) is a Bible-based, hands-on, fun-time, learning experience for the children, (although you will find that the leaders and the parents have just as much fun with this program).
What are the purposes and benefits of CKC?
The number one benefit is having the privilege of sharing Jesus Christ with our young children.
The CKC books are designed to bring the Gospel to each child, and then give him/her an opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The books then give direction on how to be Jesus’s disciple.
The second advantage of this program is that it is a great outreach tool. We have a number of kids who bring their parents to church just so they can attend CKC. The program is set up for parent participation. As the parents help their child, they in turn are getting the Gospel. God is awesome in how He works!
What is the cost of CKC?
We desire that every child be able to attend CKC free of charge.
We do hold various fund raising activities throughout the year to help offset some of the costs for materials. If you are interested in supporting CKC, you can make a tax deductible donation through Calvary Chapel Okinawa with a note that the donation is for “CKC”.
How does CKC work?
Each child will have a series of grade appropriate books that he/she will be going through at their own pace. As they go through the books they will be both memorizing verses and learning how to apply these verses in their lives. Each CKC book builds on the other. As the children go through the various books they will earn buttons that they will display on their Kids Club Sashes. They also have the opportunity to earn certificates. The buttons, awards, and certificates will remind the children of their growth in the Lord.
On the first day of CKC, each child will receive a detailed schedule of Bible teaching lessons and an activity calendar.
CKC is held on Wednesdays from 6:00pm to 7:40pm between September and June.
The children will be split into age groups. Each age group has a name and a verse. In one of their books they will memorize the verse and learn what it means. The age groups and verses are:
Sheep — Kindergarden-1st Grade
Shepherds — 2nd-3rd Grade
Servants — 4th-5th Grade
There are five activities that the children will participate in each night at CKC:
“I will declare your name to my brethren;
in the midst of the assembly I will praise You.” Psalm 22:22
Sheep through Servants meet in one room for the Opening Assembly. During Opening Assembly, children will:
Begin the night with prayer
The children will then split into their group – Sheep, Shepherds, or Servants – and go though the following three rotations:
“Your Word I have hidden in my heart,
that I might not sin against You.” Psalm 119:11
The Bible lessons will utilize two curriculum – ShareFaith will have an outline and details about different accounts in the Bible. Konnect will have practical application lessons that tie into the previous week’s Bible lesson, teaching the kids to not only know but apply God’s Word to their lives.
“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.” James 1:22
During Games, kids will participate in age-appropriate games that helps support the bible lesson.
"Give me understanding, that I may observe Your law and keep it with all my heart.” Psalm 119:34
In Homeroom, each group will be led though discussion questions that help them to apply and better understand what they have learned from the bible lesson.
In addition, each child will also meet with a CKC leader, who will monitor their progress on their individual CKC book and record points for participation and accomplishments. These points are earned throughout the year to encourage each child to take an active role in the CKC program.
A CKC Sash is awarded to each child upon completion of the CKC Starter Book.
Buttons and patches are awarded for subsequent CKC workbook completions.
Points are given to the children each night for accomplishing different tasks. In January and June, there will be a special CKC Store Night, where kids spend their points on various toys, stationary, and treats.
“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17
Lastly, Sheep through Servants meet in one room for the Closing Assembly. During Closing Assembly, children will:
Review the Bible Lesson
Receive awards for complete workbooks
