The Crossing Kids
Hi! Welcome to The Crossing Kids. Your child is an important player in the life of the Church. We believe that God speaks to all of us, regardless of age. Here at The Crossing, your child will be welcomed, loved, and valued. These are key foundational stones to developing a relationship with Jesus that will forever change their life. So, come grow alongside others who want to see you and your family thrive and live a full life.
The Crossing Kids purpose is the same as the rest of the church, to be an authentic, relevant, Bible-based ministry that welcomes everyone and desires to grow and serve together.
The Crossing Kids Vision is to be a ministry that reaches children for Christ by embracing and discipling them in the way of Jesus.
The Crossing Kids Core Values are Loving, Engaging, Cohesive, Energetic, and Welcoming.
The Why, What, and Who of The Crossing Kids
This is the most important of all. Our why is GOD and YOU. It is never too early to learn the foundations of a life with Jesus. In school, children learn their ABC’s and remember them for rest of their lives, what would it look like if your children learn that they are unconditionally loved by the creator of the universe? It would look like a changed world.
On Saturday evening and both Sunday morning services we offer age appropriate classes for all children 5th grade and younger. On the weekend our main focus is Bible-based Discipleship. We focus on 4 main spiritual disciples throughout the year and every week has 1 main point that is reinforced through the morning through the lesson, crafts, activities, and small groups.
With one central check in station, it is easy to find all of our safe and fun classrooms.
Crossing Kids Club happens at The Crossing on Wednesdays between 6:30pm-8:00pm.
This is a time for all PreK-5th graders to engage with God’s word in a fun and interactive way. With an emphasis on outreach, students will have a blast while learning what it takes to live a life devoted to Jesus.
Everyone 5th grade and younger!
On Saturday evening, there are two learning spaces for your child.
Nursery: Children 3 and younger
Kids Church: Children 4 years of age through 5th grade
On Sunday mornings all five classes are eager to learn with your child.

All of our Ministry Partners have gone through an extensive application and background check, which means your child is under the care of safe and responsible adults.
How Check-in Works
Before Service: You can check-in your child at our main check in desk down the main hall. After being greeted and checked in by a Crossing Kids team member, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.
After Service: After the service is complete, you will go to your child's classroom (if you're first time guest, we'll show you where this is before service), and show your tag to the teacher in order for your child to be released back to you.
During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, you will receive a quick text message. We ask that you exit the sanctuary immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.
