Cross Point Kids
Cross Point Kids exists to partner with parents to teach children 0-5th grade to love God, love others, and serve the world. Cross Point believes that partnering with parents to disciple children will have a greater influence than us individually working towards the same goal. We provide age-appropriate opportunities for children to be involved in a small group, to worship God in a worship service just for children, and to serve their church family and community. We also provide resources for parents to not only take their child's Sunday lesson to their home each week, but to also be the primary spiritual leaders for their children. From the smallest baby to the tallest 5th grader, spiritual growth and safety are our top priorities. Please read on to learn how we achieve these goals.
Our Preschool Ministry facilities are located on the first floor in the south end of the building hallway and are available for children ages 0 to 4 years old. Check-in is located at the welcome desk outside of the Pre-School hallway. Here you will be asked to share important information about you and your child to help keep your child safe while they are at Cross Point.
Our Preschool Ministry is staffed by a predominantly volunteer team during church-wide services on Sundays and Wednesdays. All team members pass a criminal background check and are trained to work in with preschoolers.
Children throughout the Preschool Ministry are taught via curriculum from Children Desiring God. This curriculum begins to instill basic truths into even newborns with older kids exploring the Bible in age-appropriate ways.
Age-graded small groups are available during the 9:15 service and use the Gospel Project for Kids. Kindergarten through 5th grade students are immersed in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through their teaching, kids will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God's story of redemption.
Children's Worship is offered on Sunday mornings during the 10:45 service for Kindergarten through 3rd grade children.
Children are invited to worship their God in a kid-friendly atmosphere. They worship through active songs, the giving of tithes and offerings, a Bible-based lesson, and age-appropriate videos and activities. Children's Worship meets most Sundays of the year with the opportunity for family worship mixed in to the schedule.
Awana is the discipleship and service component of CP:Kids. Awana clubs meet on Wednesday nights during the school year at 6:30. Clubbers participate in Game Time, Handbook Time, and Large Group each week. They have fun, memorize Scripture, and learn to serve others. Children 2 years old – 5th grade are invited to join an Awana club. For more information about Awana, visit their website or you may register your child oneline.
Throughout the year, Cross Point Kids hosts special events for kids, parents, and guests. These events are a great opportunity for parents to spend time with their kids and invite friends to experience Cross Point.
- Vacation Bible School - VBS is held for one week, Sunday through Thursday, in the summer in the evenings.
- WinShape Camps for Communities - an awesome week of day camp for children who have completed 1st grade but have not started 7th grade held each summer at a local church.
Whatever the season, there is always something going on for you and your children. Get involved in the activities your kids are involved in – you'll be amazed at how much fun you'll have together!
