CHILDREN'S MINISTRIES

 

Child Security Protocol

The following security measures are in place to ensure child safety:

  • All children workers are trained and mentored.

  • All children must be signed in and out before being released. 

  • A "security tag" is given when a child is signed in to ensure that only that parent (or spouse if given tag) is able to sign out child.

Note:  At Crossroads we don't "just release" children when church is over.  With many cars in the parking lot we just don't feel it's wise for your child to be roaming on their own without your supervision.   Please know that we take every measure we know of to create a safe environment that you can feel confident and comfortable in as a parent for your children.

Nursery  

Ages 2 & under

Location

Room # 1 (upstairs above main sanctuary)

Being a family oriented church we understand how important it is to provide your newborn(s) and/or toddler(s) with the very best care so you can relax and enjoy a church service or small group.  Knowing that your child is safe, happy, and well cared for is our mutual concern.  A few things, that as a parent you should now about our nursery:  (1.) Our nursery staff has instant radio communication abilities with our ushers should mom or dad be needed.  (2.)  Our nursery is safe, clean, and recently remodeled with extra thick padding below the carpet, toys, crib, and a TV with a live in-house feed of the church service.  (3.) Our nursery is staffed by at least two adults who've been trained and screened to meet our high standards.

Long story short, you can relax and enjoy the service knowing your child is being taken care of in a warm, friendly and clean environment.

Children's Church

Ages 3 & 4

 Location

Room # 2 (upstairs above main sanctuary)

This ministry is much like KIDS Church, however the age group is younger. This weekly (SUNDAY) ministry is staffed by several teams of adults who love children. This ministry runs simultaneous to our worship service on Sunday mornings...allowing mom and dad to truly enjoy every aspect of the service, knowing their children are receiving excellent ministry at a level they can understand.   This ministry is so fun we have some kids that actually ask and remind their parents to, "please bring me to church!"

Kid's Church

Ages 5 through 5th Grade

Location

Kids Church Sanctuary (Fellowship Hall)

Every Sunday our 1,000 square foot fellowship hall is transformed into our KIDS Church sanctuary where the entire service is totally "kid friendly." They sing really fun songs, play cool games, learn biblical truths through fun and creative object lessons. We invest in the very best materials available anywhere to ensure that your children will have a great experience at church every week. We have several teams of adults (some professional teachers) that serve on a scheduled rotating basis who love serving in this ministry. This ministry runs simultaneous to our worship service on Sunday mornings...allowing mom and dad to truly enjoy every aspect of the service, knowing their children are receiving excellent ministry at a level they can understand.   Like Children's Church this ministry is so fun we have some kids that actually ask and remind their parents to, "please bring me to church!" 

NOTE:  When there is a 5th Sunday in a month we encourage children to learn about worshiping in the main sanctuary and do not have Kid's Church.

Mid Week

Children of all ages.

Location

Various class rooms, fellowship hall & teen center.

Each week we have on-site small groups for adults and classes for children of all ages.  We call this weekly time of teaching our "Family Enrichment Hour."  While children's church and kid's church minister to children in larger numbers these classes are smaller and reflect more of a traditional Sunday School setting.  Teens in middle school and high school also meet for a time of teaching in our teen center building.  Important note:  everything starts at 7:00pm and wraps up at 8:00pm.
