Children's Ministry

Explore the ministry opportunities Crossroads provides for infants through 6th grade.

Crossroads Kids Club Online

Children's Church ONLINE

As we have listened, and prayed for our children in the church, we have decided to provide an opportunity for kids to have Children's Kids Club online during these challenging days. These will be recorded children's lessons appropriate for 1-6 grade; of course, preschool and kindergarten can join in listening too. We will be using the Epic curriculum we use on Sunday mornings; corresponding activity pages will be available for download as well. The service will be available online on Saturday evenings. You can view at any time- on a separate device when you are worshipping on Sunday morning or when convenient for you and your children.


Sunday School on ZOOM

Pre-teens, 4-6th grade, currently meet online for Sunday School every week at 9:15 on a ZOOM call with teacher Melissa Smit. If your child would like to join, contact the church office for the caller ID and Password.

Crossroads Kids

At Crossroads Kids children infant through 6th grade experience safe, age-appropriate, and fun environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and practical way. Crossroads Kids meets Sundays, during Sunday School at 9:15 am, and during the Contemporary Worship Service at 10:15 am.

Plan A Visit

During your first visit, please introduce yourself to one of our volunteer greeters. He or she will meet your family, make sure you fill out a short registration form, and show you and your child to their age-appropriate classroom.

 

The registration form is important for the safety of your child, as we will ask you for important information like allergies and emergency contact information. We will ask for the following information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

 

·        Parent/guardian name(s)

·        Child's name

·        Child's birthdate

·        Home address

·        Phone number

·        Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children 

What to Expect

Sunday at 9:15 am: Crossroads Kids are encouraged to learn about Jesus in their own age/grade-appropriate class.  Nursery care is available as well.


Worship Service 10:15 am:

·       Pre-school/Kindergarten kids are encouraged to take part in their own Children's Church with age appropriate lessons, snacks and activities.

·       Grades 1-6 are encouraged to sit with their parents through the worship music portion of our service, and then are excused to children's church. Our church uses Epic Curriculum to teach the Story of God through the stories of the Bible.  

Crossroads Kids Activites Through the Year

Crossroads Kids enjoy activities that engage and teach about Jesus throughout the year. We host an exciting week of VBS in the evening every summer. This allows great participation and training for adults to work with the kids. Crossroads joins with other Nazarene churches to host great summer camps for elementary and pre-teen kids. This provides a great opportunity to enjoy a week away and grow with other kids in faith in the Lord. Children are actively involved in special holiday worship services, including a bell choir, children's play and other opportunities here at Crossroads.
