At CROSSRIDGE, our kids' ministry isn't all that different from what happens for the grownups...except it's for kids! Great teaching, dynamic music and hands-on activities help point kids to Jesus...which is the point of it all!
Even our values are shared across the board. Here's what we think about kids ministry at CROSSRIDGE.
KIDS SHAPED BY THE WORD
We believe that the Word of God should ultimately shape the foundation of truth in all children. Like adults, children must be trained to read, understand, and apply the teachings of the Bible. It is our goal at Crossridge Church to guard the bodies, hearts, and minds of children by creating a safe environment where they are taught gospel centered truths.
KIDS COMMITTED TO ONE ANOTHER
We believe that God created His people to live in community. Like adults, children have a responsibility to each other to share the grace and love of Christ. It is our goal at Crossridge Church to teach children that they bring glory to God when they actively love others.
KIDS CENTERED ON CHRIST
We believe that the entire story of the Bible is made complete through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Like adults, children need to understand that God’s love—sending His one and only son to die for our sins—is the central thread that holds the Bible together. It is our goal at Crossridge Church to nurture a child’s understanding of God’s love for His people.
KIDS DEPENDENT ON GOD
We believe that all people are created by God in His image and are dependent on Him. Like adults, children need to understand their spiritual, emotional, and physical dependence on God. It is our goal at Crossridge Church to teach children the various ways in which they can come to depend on God and the joy they will receive from waking in the ways of His righteousness.
KIDS MISSIONALLY FOCUSED
We believe that the Church’s goal is to be a conduit of Christ’s grace and love to people inside and outside of our community of believers. Like adults, children need to be encouraged to look outside of themselves towards the needs of others. It is our goal at Crossridge Church to encourage children to value the need to share the good news of the gospel.
