Welcome to Calvary Champions:
A special needs ministry for kids ages 4-12!

Our Mission

We believe that every child deserves to know God and His plan for their life. We also want to make sure that all children who attend our church can experience Jesus. Because of this, we've created Calvary Champions—a ministry to kids ages 4–12 with special needs.

This church special needs ministry exists to love, empower, and teach the word of God in a specialized environment, fostering growth and spiritual connection for children with special needs.

Want Your Child to Participate?

We are expanding to the 9 a.m. service starting Mar. 31!

We could not be more thrilled to see so many wanting to join this special needs ministry in Naperville! As of now, we are almost completely at capacity at our 11 a.m. service and are taking requests for the 9 a.m. service.

Prior to joining us, we ask that each parent/guardian submit an intake form so we know how best to serve your child.

What to Expect

At Calvary Champions, kids get to attend service in their very own dedicated environment known as the “Champspace.” The Champspace will consist of four different sections throughout the service:
Bible Curriculum

Kids will also be paired one-on-one with our trained leaders and volunteers, ensuring that they have the best experience possible. Trained leaders in each room will ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Calvary Church has officially hosted its first Night to Shine event! 

We had an amazing time serving some incredible people in our community. Pictures, food, dancing... well, just have a look for yourself!

Would you pray with us over Champions?

  1. Inclusion (Luke 14:12-14)
Pray that God will guide and permeate every aspect of the ministry so that all individuals (regardless of their abilities or disabilities) feel welcomed, valued and embraced.

  1. Empowerment (John 9:2-4)
Pray that the special needs ministry would be a source of empowerment for children with disabilities, equipping them with the tools, support and opportunities they need to thrive and reach their full potential.

  1. Compassion (Colossians 3:12)
Pray for an outpouring of compassion among the members, leaders and volunteers of the ministry so that they may approach everyone with understanding, empathy and love.

Become one of our incredible volunteers!
