Children’s Ministry at Crossroads
Welcome to Kids Crossing, the children’s ministry for Crossroads Fellowship in Cadiz. Our belief is that we are partnering with parents to teach the next generation who God is with God’s word and prayer.
We provide childcare for ages 0-24 months.
Pre-K – 5th grade, receive age appropriate teaching and games during our 10:00am service.
We believe that parents are a major influence in children’s ministry. Kids Crossing helps create a culture of church life within our members that is passed down to future generations.
Duet 6:7-9 says this about God’s commandments, “You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on doorposts of your house and on your gates.” (ESV)
Kids Crossing seeks to create opportunities for parents to minister to children, so we have taken a holistic approach to our style and curriculum. Every week our Pre-K – 5th grade have a proclamation/storytelling style message called Assembly. They not only hear the Good News of what Christ has done for us but the key text each week is the same as the parents receive from Pastor Geoff’s sermon. Our desire is for both parents and children to have further conversations about what is learned on Sunday. Elementary joins in worship with the rest of the congregation and moves to the classrooms for deeper study and games.
Our model of Assembly/Worship/Small Groups is lived out similarly by the parents with Sunday and Life Groups. We hope to provide resources to equip parents the necessary tools for ministry in the home. We help to equip the children with some activities that might include scripture memorization and Old and New Testament knowledge but it is not our main focus. We seek to tell the story of what God has done for us through Jesus. God’s incomprehensible grace for sinners like you and me must be shared with the next generation and cannot be left to 2 hours out of the 168 we have each week. Will you partner with us to help display God’s Glory to the city of Cadiz and beyond?
