Kids (0-5th Grade)
We exist as a children’s ministry to walk alongside parents as they disciple their children. It is our passion to equip parents to be spiritual leaders in their homes as they live out Deuteronomy 6. We also believe the church is designed to be an outflow of Christ-like love, and we strive to display that love to your children.
Our Children's ministry is birth-5th grade and has wonderful classes during both the 9:15 am and 10:45 am services. Our classrooms are staffed with trained, friendly volunteers that provide a safe and loving environment for children. We want parents to have peace of mind when they place their child in our care, so all staff and teachers have gone through training and background checks to be qualified to work with the children at Crossroads Bible Church. Teachers are well-trained in hygiene practices to keep our classrooms clean and sanitary.
Check in & Security
Children may be checked in 30 minutes before service begins, but they may only be dropped off 15 minutes early and once their leader arrives. If you’re visiting for the first time, you will need to fill out a registration form to receive a security sticker. The sticker serves 3 purposes:
It is a security measure for checking out your child. Your child can only be released from class with the matching security sticker.
It is a means of letting teachers know of any allergies or health issues.
It is a means of contacting you if we should need you during the service, your security number will show on the screen in service.

Today the kids will be learning about Paul's letter to the church of Galatia on how to live out the faith.

Some great questions to ask this week are:

Some great questions to ask are:
1. What is a spiritual gift, and do we all have the same ones?
2. What is the best way to discover your gifts?
3. What are some gifts you learned about at church today and how could they be used in the church?
