Kids Ministry

WELCOME TO CCK (CROSS COMMUNITY KIDS)

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”  Mark 12:30-31

Mission Statement:

To assist our covenant children, their friends, and the children in our neighborhoods to grow in the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior through:

Discipleship: Where each child learns of God and His redemptive plan for them and the world through the teaching of Holy Scripture.

Love: Where each child hears, sees and experiences the love of Christ, and in turn grows in loving God and those around them.

Evangelism: Where each child is encouraged to pray for and reach out to those that may not yet know Christ.

Equipping: To equip and encourage the parents of Cross Community Church in their God given role to teach and train their children in the Lord.

GET TO KNOW OUR CLASSROOMS

NURSERY & TODDLERS (NEWBORN-2 YEARS)

Our nursery and toddlers room is a safe, calm environment for babies and toddlers.  Our nursery volunteers will gently care for your young child, and facilitate age appropriate playtime. Depending on your preference, a female volunteer can change your child’s diaper, or you may be called for a diaper change. Any potty-training children will have to be accompanied by their parent for bathroom needs.

CCK’S SUNDAY SCHOOL

The Sunday School is comprised of two classes. The 3–7 year old class and the 8–11 year old class. Students in both classrooms stay with their parents in the service till right before the sermon starts. We want to help build their foundation of faith by engaging them in our times of singing worship songs and reading liturgy.  Once dismissed from service, children will walk with their parents to their classroom.  Here, children are engaged in a lesson from the Hearts Alive Curriculum which is a Gospel-centered curriculum emphasizing the story of salvation through Jesus Christ.

YOUNGER SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS (3–7 YEAR OLDS)

The Younger Sunday School Class is a classroom designed to harness the excitement and energy of our younger students with songs, a brief Bible story from the Hearts Alive Curriculum and plenty of hands on activities to reinforce that Sunday’s lesson. Our goal is to have our kids not only become familiar with Bible stories, but also start to make the larger picture connection of God’s redemptive purpose for them and this fallen world through His son Jesus.

OLDER SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS (8-11 YEAR OLDS)

Older children in this classroom are also being taught by the Hearts Alive Curriculum, but will dig deeper into the Bible themselves with the help of their Sunday School teachers.  The Hearts Alive Curriculum is a 3- year Gospel-based lectionary curriculum aiming at giving children a strong overview of the story of salvation and how it ties to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
