Welcome to Crossway Kids!
Whether you’re thinking about stopping by for just one Sunday or you’re interested in sticking with us for a while, we’re glad you’re checking out Crossway Kids. The following are a few things that could be helpful to know before you get here.
Who we are:
CrossWay Kids exists to intentionally partner with parents in leading their children into a maturing relationship with Jesus by teaching biblical truth in the classroom and offering family materials that bridge Sunday to the rest of the week.
What to Expect:
We believe that children are full and active participants in our gospel centered community. They are welcome at all events, all worship gatherings, and all community gatherings. We believe that God has called us to make room for one another, and we are committed to having children in our midst. Because of that, we always welcome children to attend the worship gathering in its entirety. We are not bothered by ordinary noises and disruptions.
Because we feel it is important for children to be part of what we do communally each Sunday, children remain with parents during the music. Afterward the parents are dismissed to drop off the children at their Crossway Kids rooms, where they will listen to Bible stories, play, and create art. These classes are split up into two groups; Preschool (ages 2-4) and Elementary (K-5th)
Crossway Community Church is committed to providing a loving, safe place for your child. We require all our volunteers to undergo a criminal background check and to be connected to our community for an extended time before becoming volunteers.
We ask that if your children are sick that you not check them into Crossway Kids. This is for the health and safety of the other children in the ministry and our volunteers. If your child has shown any of the following in the previous 24 hours, please do not check them into Crossway Kids:
- A fever over 100 degrees
- Any signs of chickenpox or other contagious virus/bacteria
- Flu symptoms, including, but not limited to, runny nose, cough, or rash
Additionally, we request that you use discernment when checking in the siblings of a child experiencing the symptoms above, as they may also be contagious as well. If your child appears to be sick at the time of check in, our volunteers will request that you do not check in your child. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our sick policy, please email emilyfoster34@
