Crossroads Kids Ministry Areas



Crossroads Nursery:
The nursery consists of children birth through 18 months old. This area is characterized by low teacher/child ratios, gentle play, and a safe place where they are loved and well taken care of.

Crossroads Toddlers:
The toddler class consists of children 19 months to 2 years. This area is characterized by low teacher/child ratios and active play.

Crossroads Preschool:
Our preschool class at Crossroads is geared towards potty-trained children, ages 3-5. Once they turn 3, children move into preschool and remain with us, until the summer before they will be entering Kindergarten. This age is an exciting time for learning, and we firmly believe in the importance of taking advantage of these years; engulfing the children in Jesus' love! A firm foundation in the love of Christ can be the beginning of a child who is truly seeking to know Jesus, as he/she gets into the elementary ages. Our goal is to bring Jesus to the children, on a level that they can understand, each and every week. Not only do we want to teach them about Jesus, we want them to experience Jesus' love, through us, every single time they enter our classroom! Remember, this may be the only Jesus some of these children get, and it's important that it makes a lasting impression. We aim to create a warm and fun atmosphere that balances love, learning and play. When the children have fun, and experience the love of Christ, they will want to come back week after week. This gives us the opportunity to teach them Bible stories and introduce them to God's truths, in a fun and interactive way, through the short lessons that we incorporate into each service. It is such a blessing and honor to know that you are making a difference in the lives of God's children and teaching them about our Savior!

Crossroads K-1st Grade:
The Kindergarten - 1st Grade ministry at Crossroads is a class that teaches Bible stories to the children so they can learn about God's Son, Jesus. They find out who the people from the Bible are and how they served God. We have a "small group" setting where the children participate in discussion, activities and games that focus on the Bible story for that week. We have "large group" time with two other classes where the Bible story is presented on the big screen in a way that captures the attention of everyone. Singing and praising our Lord is part of large group too. The main focus for K-1 is to teach your child about Jesus and have fun doing it.

Crossroads 2nd-3rd Grade:
This area is characterized by high impact, fun, and engaging teaching and worship. A fun environment is the setting for kids to build strong relationships with each other and their leaders all while learning about God and His love.

Crossroads 4th-5th Grade:
At crossroads, we believe the word fights back. The sword of the spirit is our weapon of offense. In fourth and fifth grade, memorizing scripture is our offense against temptation, fighting it off. Our fourth and fifth grade class learns our key passage verses in sign language, to commit it to memory. We incorporate hands on activities to engage their minds and their hearts with our weekly Bible stories, to etch them permanently in their hearts.

Crossroads Special Needs:
"I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well." Psalms 139:14 ESV Every child was made by God and is fearfully and wonderfully made. At Crossroads we want to provide a loving and nurturing atmosphere that works with each child individually. In our Special Needs Ministry we adapt the curriculum to each child's abilities and teach them Gods word through music, dancing, hands on activities, creative activities, and interactive bible stories. This ministry is offered for children ranging from preschool thru elementary with a diagnosed special need. Crossroads is a loving and supportive environment where every child is loved and cherished as the special gift God intended them to be.

Breakroom:
This ministry is for Preschool through 5th grade children who have parents that volunteer in our Kids ministry. This ministry is a place for children of volunteers to be when they are here for both services. This is where they take a “break” and have free play.

New Parent Greeter
This ministry helps set the stage for our whole Ministry! The first impression is one that will make it or break it. In this area we will help welcome new parents and children into our Kids area as well as check them in, provide them with a tag, give them a goodie bag, and tell them any needed information. This area is where all our children will see the love of Jesus first!
