Jesus invited children to come to Him, implying that they could know Him and have a place in God’s Kingdom. Our purposes in Children’s Ministries at Crossroads are two. First, working with parents, to lead children to know Jesus as their Savior and best friend. Second, to encourage the development of Christian character in their lives.

Pre-Service Classes (9am)

Concurrent with adult and youth Sunday school classes, children also engage with Scripture in programs tailored to their age and maturity:

  • Children's Church - Grades 1-5.
  • Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers in the nursery. Preschoolers will receive a lesson, and Toddlers are also welcome to participate.

Sunday School (10:30am)

During our weekly worship services, preschool and elementary-aged children join the beginning of the liturgy along with their parents. After our call to worship and some musical worship, children are dismissed to meet their teachers and walk to class with them. (Visiting parents are encouraged to walk out with the children, to meet their child’s teacher, and either to stay and observe the class, or to return to the service.) Parents are also encouraged to pick up their children from classes immediately after the service and take them to the refreshment table.
