WHAT IS CROSS KIDZ?

Every Sunday all children (babies through 5th grade) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way. We are passionate about kids learning about Jesus in a way THEY can understand!

 

If you would like to be a part of the Cross Kidz volunteer team please contact: ashley@thecrossmatters.org


What We Value

Creative Bible Teaching

The Bible is the most amazing book ever written! We strive to bring its stories to life through activities and discussions that keep children engaged. We want all children to love God’s word and understand the value of applying it to their lives.

 

Safety

Every child’s nametag is matched to a parent-identification number, every volunteer is screened and has completed a federal background check, and every hallway is monitored by security personnel.

 

Fun!

Kids love fun! We realize that when children have fun at church, they can’t wait to come back. We value creating fun ways for children to learn about Jesus, including games, activities, singing, and more!


Our Kidz classes are broken down into the following age groups:

DOWNTOWN- Babies-Pre-K

Cross Kidz offers First Look for the curriculum. It uses fun and engaging activities to introduce pre-school children (ages birth to five) to God. First Look gives children a first impression of their heavenly Father and the wonder of His love for each one of them.

Goal: By the time a child leaves our Downtown Department, we want them to understand three basic principles:

GOD MADE ME – GOD LOVES ME – JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FRIEND FOREVER

 

Babies/Crawlers: Newest little bundles of joy, babies that are beginning to sit-up, play and crawl.   Little ones will stay in this room until they are 1 year old AND walking steady on their feet.

Toddlers: Age 1 AND walking steady on their feet.

Downtown 1: Age 2 by September 1 of current year. 

Downtown 2: Ages 3-5 by September 1 of current year. 


UPTOWN - K thru 5th Grade

Cross Kidz offers Elevate for the curriculumElevate teaches kids to lead and succeed through Biblical values, and to apply the Bible to their everyday lives.  Elevate offers creative teaching through fun characters, games, discipleship activities and music.


YOUR FIRST VISIT

Look for the Cross Kidz check-in kiosk. We will meet you, check your child into our database system, and a volunteer will lead you and your child to their age-appropriate room.

We will ask for the following personal information: Parent’s/Guardian’s names, children’s names, birthdates, address, phone number, and any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your child.


HOW CHECK-IN & PICKUP WORKS

Check your child in at the Cross Kidz check-in kiosk.  Once your child’s name is found in the database:

Babies-Pre-K will receive a name tag with parent matching identification tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you keep the matching tag.  After the service, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you. 

 K-5th will be given a name tag that should be worn with your child’s information listed on it.   Students will be released out the lobby upon service dismissal.  If you wish to pickup your child at the classroom, please let the volunteer know when you drop off. 


We would love to see you and your family visit Cross Kidz at a Cross Church campus this Sunday. Join the fun and experience a world where kids meet Jesus on their level!
