CROSSWAY KIDS (Nursery to Grade 5)
Welcome to CW Kids! Children are a gift and blessing from God. We are eager to love, teach, and serve them!
In everything we do, we envision to help CW Kids grow in their knowledge, love, trust, and enjoyment of God. As they learn to joyfully obey His will and commands, they will grow in Christlikeness, impacting themselves and the world.
Our Vision Verse:
“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. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” — Deuteronomy 6:5-9
CrossWay Kids feels called to teach biblical, God-centered doctrine to our next generation. For example, God is self-existent, needing nothing–it is He who gives us everything, life-giving truths to grow into! CW Kids teaches the same biblical truths that we adults are learning by using curriculum from Truth 78. As a team we take these commandments with much fear, trembling, and joy!
We will not hide them from their children,
but tell to the coming generation
the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might,
and the wonders that he has done.
so that they should set their hope in God
and not forget the works of God,
but keep his commandments; –Psalm 78:4 & 7
We have two classes: Younger Elementary (Preschool – 2nd) and Older Elementary (3rd-5th). Every year a child will attend the class of their grade level.
This year the Younger Elementary will be focusing on “Jesus What a Savior”, a curriculum based on the redemption story of Jesus! The Older Elementary class will be focusing on “To Be Like Jesus”. This curriculum is based on who the Bible says Jesus is, what he has done and how they can respond.
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” And he laid his hands on them and went away. – Matthew 19:14-15
MINISTRY YEAR for Fall 2023 – Summer 2024
CW Kids direction: In challenges or uncertainties, CW Kids will DRAW NEAR TO GOD!
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.” – James 4:7-8
That means this year we’ll focus on praying for others, asking questions, providing answers and learning how to draw near to God in everyday life situations!
