NEWBORN - 5th GRADE
Connections. That's what Cross Church's Ministry to Kids is all about. We provide fun activities in a safe environment where kids can connect with other kids to form meaningful friendships. We help kids discover how the truths from God's Word connect with the world today. We partner with parents in an effort to connect church with home. Most of all, we want to show kids how they can connect with Jesus Christ by trusting him as their Savior and making him Lord of their lives.

New Discoveries is a special class designed to celebrate a child's decision to follow Christ. It is a one-time session that covers basic principles for Christian living, including assurance of salvation, the meaning and "how-to's" of baptism and the Lord's Supper, the process of growing in Christ through a daily quiet time (prayer and Bible study), and worship in the local church family. All children that have made a commitment to trust Jesus as their Savior are encouraged to attend this fun, fast-paced informative class. If your child is interested in attending this class, please email email@example.com

Your special needs child is welcome at Cross Church!
Every person has the ability to experience God in a special way. Our volunteers are ready to love your child and help maximize his or her experience at church. We work closely with parents to create an individualized program for each child based on his or her developmental ability. Shadowing: Some special needs kids just need a helping hand. Trained adult and teen buddies serve as “shadows” enabling kids to participate in typical classes and Kid Worship to his or her maximum ability.
Before your first visit, contact us at 817.686.2075 so we can learn about your child's specific needs and be prepared to welcome you and your child to Cross Church.
