KIDS MINISTRY

HELPING YOU MAKE DISCIPLES!

We feel a lot of responsibilities as parents: teaching our kids to read, to interact kindly with others, to know the difference between right and wrong. God has absolutely entrusted those tasks to us, but one of the biggest responsibilities He has given us as parents is to teach our children about Him! We have children in our home who are unbelievers in need of a Savior, and it is our job to teach them that! Deuteronomy 6:5-7 says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”

We want to equip you to talk about God’s Word in your home and as you go about your daily and weekly routines. We provide resources to help you continue conversations that began in LifeGroups and worship hours that you can take home from church and other tools that you can access online from our resource link below and our social media accounts.

At church, your kids will learn that the Bible is one story of God’s plan to rescue His people through His Son, Jesus Christ. In LifeGroups, we walk chronologically through the Bible, teaching kids from God’s Word at their developmental level. In the worship hours, we invite kids to join us in worship, fun interactive elements, and continued teaching on their age level.

Childcare is available for kids 2 years old and younger.

Kids Ministry Events

There are always fun events to be apart of as a family outside of the normal Wednesday & Sunday experiences.

Take a look at the latest events coming up for you and your family.

Just for Parents...

Discipling your kids at home

Our biggest encouragement to parents about reading God's Word in their homes is to do it little by little. Whether your child is two or twelve, open the Bible and read a verse, chapter, or passage and talk about the Lord! Make talking about Christ normal in your home by bringing Him up regularly.

Start or continue a faith conversation

Click the icon to download our Gospel conversation guide to help you meet your child wherever they are in their faith. We encourage you to let you child's questions and attention lead the conversation and not try to force them to engage if they are not. God draws our kids to Himself and His timing is perfect.

Celebrate their BIG decision

After your child has trusted in Jesus as their Lord and Savior, help them understand why they should follow in baptism. Click the icon to look at our events page to see when our next Raised to Life service is.

Join our Crossgates Kids serve team

We cannot make all of the activities happen for our kids just as a staff team. It takes so many volunteers like you every week to create a comfortable environment where our kids can learn about Jesus! To get plugged into serving in Kids Ministry, please e-mail us at kidsministry@crossgates.org.
