5 And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
6 And these words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart;
7 and you shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit
in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.
We endeavor to create a learning experience for each child that is biblical, worshipful, exciting, inspiring, fun, edifying and full of love, care and patience. We want to teach and inspire our children to
- trust Jesus as Savior and Lord
- love God
- love one another
- live the mission
- honor their parents and those in authority
- develop leadership qualities
- grow in integrity and godly character
- experience God’s presence 24/7 and follow His guidance
- accurately understand and apply God’s word daily
- surrender their lives to God’s call whatever that may be
- diligently honor God in their schooling, sports and the arts, and
- be good stewards.
We believe in teaching children the Word of God in a fun and exciting way that stimulates participation and growth. To teach and inspire our children we use the Bible, ourselves as examples, illustrative stories and testimonies, music, drama, art, games, videos and rewards.
If we have described your perspective regarding the discipleship of children, we invite you to join this team. Our children need teacher helpers as well as teachers. If you would like to serve with one of the age groups, please contact a team leader or the church office. Six months of active participation in CPF and a background check is required before serving in a student ministry.
The information below is for a “normal” schedule: Check with a Life Group leader or the office for what’s happening during COVID-19 social distancing guidelines!
Groups for children include:
Awesome Adventure Children’s Church
Awesome Adventure is a high energy, interactive worship experience for children where the Bible comes alive! The adventure takes place each Sunday morning during the adult worship service. Children can register in the foyer on the way into the worship center and are dismissed for Awesome Adventure usually after one or two songs.—
Life Groups (for adults as well as children) meet 10:30-11:30am. In these groups children learn to love God, love one another and live the mission through the use of age-appropriate and interactive Bible stories, puppets, drama, music, memory verses, art, and games.
On Wednesday evenings during the school year, kids are invited to our CrossPointe Kids Clubs (6:45-7:45pm) where our goal is to help children develop character and skill for life. Photos and videos are available on our Facebook page: Facebook.com/CrossPointeKidsClubs. Kids Clubs (boys and girls generally separate into separate clubs) are a part of our Wednesday Night Blast (Building Lives Around Solid Truth), which includes:
6:45pm Youth (grades 5-12)
6:45pm Kids Clubs (3 yrs-grade 4)
We will have one or two adult Bible studies so parents have a place of their own. We provide a nursery for the infants and toddlers o those parents.
All groups dismiss at 7:45pm
Vacation Bible School
Many children (and parents!) look forward to CPF’s amazing VBS programs each year. We are being excessively cautious since we don’t know what COVID-19 might affect this summer and will not hold a VBS in 2020. Check back next year for information on 2021’s VBS!
Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
