To guide children into a loving relationship with Jesus Christ and challenge them to grow in their knowledge of Him, through a safe, fun, and hands-on learning environment.
Current CrossTown Information and Procedures
*Children's ministry will only be offered during the 10:30 a.m. service. No nursery care will be provided. All other ages of children will be dismissed from the main worship service after the worship song portion of the service.
*Parents/Grandparents must register children between 10-10:30 a.m. The registration area will be set up outside the youth/children building in the covered walkway area.
*Crossroads is following the same safety protocols as public schools. Adult teachers and children will be required to wear masks during the ministry time. Hand sanitizer will be used regularly. Children will be properly distanced at tables and siblings will sit together.
*Dismissal will be highly organized to ensure proper social distancing and to make sure parent and child identification stickers are matched.
*We are encouraging children to bring an offering each week to help support Peterson, a boy who lives in an orphanage in Haiti that is sponsored by one of our mission partners, Second Chance.
Our Passion: Jesus loves children and so do we! We place the utmost importance on relationships, consistency, and follow-up. We want each child to realize how special he or she is to God and to us.
Our Commitment: CT takes the safety of children seriously. Before joining our team, all of our volunteers go through a careful application and screening process that includes both references and background checks. We want nothing but the best for our kids! In addition, upon entering CrossTown, each child and his or her parent are given a security sticker that ensures that only Mom or Dad can pick up the child at the close of the morning service.
Our Style: CT employs a workshop-rotation model that enhances learning experiences for children by promoting the use of all the senses. Kids may journey to Bethlehem and relive the birth of Jesus by taking part in the story as guests in the inn; or sample foods that Jewish kids would have eaten, like figs and olives; or create collages to remind them of Bible characters like Esther and Mordecai. Kids will experience the Bible and ask the key question: Where do I fit into the story?
