children's ministries

Children's Ministries will restart when COVID restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so.  Until then (and always) we welcome all children into our service.

little acorns

birth - age 3

They may be called oaks of righteousness,
    the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.

Before they can be "oaks of righteousness" they are "little acorns".

At Crossroads we believe that the primary institution set up by God is the family. To the family God gives the task to be fruitful, to multiply and to fill the earth with image bearers (Gen 1:27) -- which means how a church supports a family trying to raise kids that love Jesus is one of our highest callings.

Every week our Little Acorns teachers, who have been screened and trained to keep the children in our care safe, work to help you connect with God and your church family either by taking some time with your little ones while you worship or by helping you find everything you need to change a diaper, find a toy or settle a fusser. 
inside out kids

kindergarten - grade 5

Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16

Inside Out Kids, aptly named, helps kids know that Jesus lives INSIDE their hearts so they can show Him on the OUTSIDE. We assist parents to fulfill their mandate to Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it (Prov. 22:6).

We offer age appropriate classes to lead the children to worship God in song, prayer, and Bible teaching. We encourage children to embrace their classmates as the neighbours God has given them to love.  Each child that joins our ministry receives a hard cover NLT bible so they can dive into God's word daily themselves!

We began 2020 with a large group of children jumping into a new curriculum called The Praise Factory, written by Constance Dever of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington DC. We have Deep Down Detectives (ages 4-5) who are learning key Bible Truths as revealed in Bible stories, hymns, and songs. Story board visuals, listening assignments from Detective Dan, and other activities make learning fun.
The  Praise Factory Investigators (ages 6-10) are also digging deep into God's Word to answer the Big Questions of our faith. The stories of the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the fathers of our faith allow for comprehensive understanding of key Bible Truths. There are weekly take-home papers so that parents can connect with the themes, verses, and songs and continue the teaching at home. Parents are encouraged to spear-head the Biblical training of their kids and have them learn and serve at Crossroads where needed. Thank you for allowing us to share in this journey - your kids are awesome!
pilgrim youth

grade 6 - 8

I delight in your precepts; I will not forget your word.
Psalm 119:16

At Crossroads we believe that when kids and young teenagers store up the word of God in their hearts they are well equipped to face a challenging world.

With the Pilgrims we use the New City Catechism to train, teach and equip kids in this age to transition into challenging teenage years as they make their faith their own.
