KIDSWAY

CHRISTMAS AT KIDSWAY

Christmas brings so many causes for celebration. But there’s one simple reason we can find hope, joy, love, and peace: because God sent Jesus to be our Savior. This year, we would like to celebrate with you, in your home, and invite you to join us for a virtual family Christmas event called Jingle Jam.


Your family will love seeing the cast of characters we’ve assembled to tell the Advent story! Best of all, you decide when to hold it! All you need to do is register for the kidsway take home kit and you’ll have everything you need to host a fun, family-centered event celebrating Jesus, God's greatest gift.


December's kit includes an Advent wreath devotions, material to participate in our Jingle Jam and weekly lessons to do with your children. 

Registration for the kits is currently closed. 

A link to our Jingle Jam video will be posted on November 29th.


The kits will be available for pickup on Sunday, November 29th immediately following the services at each campus. You may also pickup the kits November 30th - Dec. 10th at the Pond office from 9am - 3pm. Email ahead of time for contactless pickup.  Email Mkosman@crosswaycc.org to arrange another pick-up time if you can't make the above times.

TODDLER & PRESCHOOL

This time of year helps us refocus on all the good in our lives. And there is SO much good when it comes to God. Because God is good! That is what we want preschoolers to learn this month. God is good and we have A LOT we can thank Him for. We can’t wait to celebrate thankfulness all month long! And, in case you didn’t know, we are very thankful for you and all that you do to help preschoolers know that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.

ELEMENTARY

Gratitude sometimes feels like a lost art. Yet gratitude is an idea close to God’s heart. Think about all of the Bible stories where people give thanks to each other, celebrate God with feasts and festivals—not to mention the Psalms filled songs of praise. Just take a moment to consider everything God has done for you: the world He made, the promises He’s kept, the new life He offers through Jesus. When we remember all of that, we can always be thankful.

How to Talk to Your Kids about The Coronavirus

Nursery, Toddlers and Preschoolers

We've created a loving environment that centers on giving preschoolers a first impression of their heavenly Father. Our small group leaders help children discover the wonder of God through consistent & caring small groups, creative Bible teaching, developmentally-appropriate activities, and interactive worship. Our goal is that, by the time they head off for elementary school, each preschooler will believe three basic truths as the foundation of their faith: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. 

Grade K-5 Kids

Elementary age children experience high energy worship and songs, hear the Bible taught in their language and learn to love God & others in a safe, small group community. Kidsway uses the 252Basics curriculum which includes intentional large group/small group time, engaging activities and applicable lessons for your child's every day life. Our small groups teach kids all about God's big story and where they fit in that story by emphasizing the 3 basic truths: I need to make the wise choice; I can trust God no matter what; and I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Safety

Rest assured your kids are safe with us. We use a computerized check-in system that prints security tags so only you can pick up your child. Each tag shows the child’s name, classroom, any allergy information and an ID number. The ID number will show up on the main screen in the auditorium if we need you. In addition, all Kidsway volunteers have gone through background checks and interviews.
