Each week we use KidCheck to register and check in kids, pre-register here and save you time on Sunday mornings!
In the Crossroads Children's Ministry, we want a child's journey to be a great adventure learning through creative methods such as drama, music, video, puppetry, and much more. Our committed volunteers want to partner with the family in building a spiritual foundation for kids. You and your child (Ages birth-5th grade) are invited to visit during ANY weekend service, where you will experience a safe and fun environment.
In the case of a room being at capacity with our volunteer-to-child ratio we will extend you, the parent, an invitation of attending the program with your child. If you’d like to volunteer on a regular basis, please contact the staff member in the area of your interest (see bottom of page).
We offer our "Clubhouse" room every weekend at our first service (10:00am). Space is limited so If you have a special needs child who attends our Kidz Ministry, please note it in your registration and/or see a staff member.
Nursery (Birth to 1 Years)
We hope that we will have the privilege to care for your child. The Children's Ministry works hard to create a loving and safe environment for your child so that you can enjoy the service.
To help you get to know us better, below is information regarding the quality of care we provide each service:
- We use a paging system should you need to return to the nursery for any reason.
- Children are assigned a number to ensure they are only released to you. Therefore, please present the number first when picking up your child.
- Toys are disinfected for every service.
- Volunteers undergo a background check to ensure they are not a risk to the children.
- Unless you instruct otherwise, we will page you if your child cries continuously for 15 minutes.
- Weekly Registration Forms are used to provide you with maximum opportunity to give us information about your child and what we can do to provide the best possible care.
Tyketown (2 yrs old to Pre-Kindergarten)
Tyketown is a place where Pre K kids get excited about God! In Tyketown kids learn that God made them – God loves them – AND that Jesus is their Forever Friend. We teach these 3 concepts in Tyketown by spending a more focused time in small groups and a 25 minute large group experience. Your child will have fun in a small group setting with a story surprise box and activities that go along with the large group teaching. Town Hall, our large group experience, is the place we meet to sing songs, visit with our puppet friends, and hear exciting Bible stories. Our hope and prayer is that kids will realize that Jesus is their forever friend.

K-Town (Kindergarten to 5th grades)
A high-paced environment awaits kids that come to K-Town. Kids will experience a learning atmosphere filled with music/media and dramas. Fun elements are used to teach kids about how to live the Christian life at home, at school, and in their neighborhoods. Small groups are an important part of the weekend service. This is where kids connect with other kids their age in a fun setting with a consistent small group leader who wants to build relationships and partner with families in the spiritual growth of your children. Throughout the year, events are planned to get your child involved with other kids, adults, and with God. Activities include pool parties, trips to camp, and much more.
Small Groups: Kindergarten, First Grade Boys, First Grade Girls, 2-3rd Grade Boys, 2-3rd Grade Girls, 4-5th Grade Boys, 4-5th Grade Girls
