Mission

The mission of CrossRoads Kids Ministry is to teach children about Jesus and His plan for the world. We encourage kids to begin a relationship with Jesus and to grow to understand their identity and the purpose Jesus has for them.

 

Values

We represent Jesus to children. We are influencing the next generation of His Church. We believe Jesus wants to be involved in the lives of children no matter what their age. We will equip children to influence their world for Jesus.  We want to point kids toward a lifelong faith in Him through memorable, easy-to implement, Jesus-focused experiences that emphasize parent and small group relationships.


Kids Church classes are offered Sunday mornings during service at 9:30. Click below to learn more about what Kids Church has to offer!

Safety Guidelines

Check-In/Out Procedures

All parents/guardians are required to print out a name badge for each child and will also receive a pickup tag.  Parents will directly drop off and pick-up their child at their designated classroom. No child can be picked-up from a classroom without a parent showing the pick-up badge provided at check-in.

First Time Visitors

When you first attend, visit our “New Here” table to register your children for their age-appropriate classrooms.  Our helpers will guide new guests through the check-in process, pick-up procedures and help the children get acclimated to their class.
