CR Kids

Parents + Church = A recipe for success.

God has given you an awesome opportunity to raise some beautiful children. We want to come alongside you to help you do that. We do that for your baby-5th grader in three main ways:

1: Equipping you as parents to disciple your kids at home!
2: Creating a fun and safe environment at Crossroads for your kids to learn and grow!
3: Attending events to help springboard spiritual growth!

Safety is a priority.

  • For Sunday morning service we have a safe, easy to go through, and efficient Check-In system. 
  • All of the volunteers that work with your kids are background checked.
  • Every volunteer has a leader handbook with policies and procedures so they can be informed on how to facilitate a fun and safe environment.

AT CHURCH

We have one way that we invest all of our energy in for your kids at Crossroads:
  • CR Kids Church | Sunday Mornings, 10am (This entails worship, large group teaching, and small group activities)

Where do I go?
  • All of CR Kid's programming takes place upstairs! Take a right as you enter our front doors and, after checking your kid in, follow the signs up stairs. On Sunday mornings there will be Check-In Volunteers that will point you in the right direction!
  • Once you check-in your kids you can drop them off at each of their respective rooms before heading down the south stairwell.
    • Nursery–3s
    • Pre-School–Kindergarten
    • 1st–2nd Grade
    • 3rd–5th Grade

Orange 252 Curriculum:
  • This is a comprehensive curriculum that combines Large Group teaching with Small Group Activities and Discussion. 
  • We have monthly themes, and each week we will learn a different aspect of that Scripturally-based theme! So everything that we do on Sunday Mornings in Large Groups, Small Groups, Sunday school, and even Wednesday Nights is all teaching towards the same point so that the message is reinforced in your child!

Safety:
  • We have awesome volunteers that love your kids well every week that have a handbook that outlines policies and procedures to help make sure your kid has a fun and safe time.
  • We background check all of our awesome volunteers.
  • We have a check-in system to check in all of the kids and so we make sure they leave with the adult that they came with!

Check-In:
  • For CR Kids Service, we have two Check-In Leaders ready to assist you.
  • There are tablets at the bottom of the stair-well. Simply type in your last name, tap each child you are checking in, then head up the stairs!
  • When you get upstairs, a Check-In leader will hand you a name-tag for each of the kids you checked in as well as a parent tag. Keep this with you as you will need it when you pick your kids up!
  • If it is your first time, instead of typing in your last name you will press the (+) icon in the top right corner of the tablet. Then simply enter in your child's basic information.

At Home

One of the great things about the Orange 252 Curriculum that we use is that it also creates resources for parents and kids to use at home! So your kids can be diving into the same Scriptural truths at home that they are at church! It is a partnership.

  • Parent Cue App This is an app that you can download on your device and  plus it gives you a weekly video that you can watch with your kids at home that covers what we talked about on Sunday! You can grab this material on your way down the south Children's Ministry stairwell.
  • GodTimes are daily, age-appropriate quiet times for your kids to go through (although we would encourage you to join along). These are handed out to the kids on the first Sunday of each month, but are also always available at the bottom of the south stairwell that you will pass as you and your kids are leaving!
  • RightNow Media. Like Netflix for Christian growth, there are thousands of videos to watch and discuss as a family, or find specific parenting videos! There are even Christian cartoons that your kids can watch. It is a great resource that our church pays for so you and your family can have free access to! Click here to set up a profile.
  • Parent Roundtable. Every year we have an evening of more intensive parent training over a specific topic. Topics have included Digital Media as well as Anxiety and Depression in Teens.
  • Take Home Challenges.  A few times a year, we provide extra material for you to have a family night with your kids that help promote discussion centered around family and Jesus! This is just another way to equip you to disciple your family!
