Crosswind Kids

COVID-19 Update

September 17, 2020

Starting Sunday, November 1 we will once again be able to offer our Crosswind Kids classes. For the time being, they will be offered during the 9:00 service only and reservations will be needed ahead of time. More information will be available in the coming weeks. Families who do not wish to utilize our Crosswind Kids classes will continue to have the option to enjoy the service outside at our playground (weather permitting).

Our Crosswind Kids Live service will continue to be available on our livestream Sundays at 9:00 AM (8:00 AM beginning November 1). You can tune in to the kids service live or watch it on demand after it airs. All the options on how to watch the livestream are available below. Families may also gather outside at our playground, which is located on the RT. 27 side of the building, where we have a loudspeaker set up that will play our FM radio broadcast. This enables the kids to play safely outside and parents to enjoy the service! This is, of course, weather permitting.

We Want Your Kids to Love Church

We are committed to creating safe and fun environments where your children are taught about the Bible and the love of Jesus through relevant, age-appropriate kids services. Our ultimate hope is to see a generation of children come to know God at an early age. Crosswind Kids is for children from birth through 5th grade and classes are available at both Sunday Morning services!

Location

Our entire Children's Ministry area is located in the lower level, right beneath the main sanctuary. We feel that this is the best location to help ensure the safety of our kids and it gives them a place of their own. This also keeps the kids close to their parents in the main service.

Check-In

To ensure the safety of the kids in our Children's Ministry classes, we use a check-in system. Each week when you arrive you will be asked to check in the kids that are going to be attending one of our Crosswind Kids' classes. First-time guests are asked to register each child at the Children's Ministry sign-in desk, located at the bottom of the stairwell. (Our Welcome Center hosts in the lobby will be happy to direct you!) During this registration and check-in process, this is great time to alert the Crosswind Kids Dream Team of any special needs, allergies, or other information you feel they need to be aware of. We strive to create space for every child to have fun and encounter Jesus!

Each parent and child will have an ID sticker, which serves multiple purposes. First, they allow us to monitor and control the traffic through our Children's area. Only people with the designated ID stickers are allowed past the table and into any of the rooms. Second, they allow us to communicate with parents. Each child is randomly assigned a number each week, and that number is printed on the stickers. If we need to reach you during service, we'll flash that number onto the main projector screens at the front of the auditorium. Finally, the registration and check-in systems allow us to easily keep track of how many children are in our Children's Area each week and which ministries they are involved in.

Safety

Safety is a top priority for us here at Crosswind Church. Each one of our Crosswind Kids Dream Team members undergo a criminal background check in order to ensure that the people working with your children are safe. Our Crosswind Safety Team is also present at every one of our services and monitor every corridor of the church. Should they be needed, our check-in station is equipped with a radio that reaches them directly. You can rest assured that while at Crosswind Church your kids will be safe and well cared for!

The Reef

Nursery, Toddlers, and Preschool

Crosswind provides a loving, caring, and nurturing environment for our littlest ones. Our focus for this age group is to share God’s love through teaching, playing, and encouraging. It is our goal that when they leave this area of their journey they have heard the word Jesus many times and that it becomes a natural part of their language development. Our toddler and preschool classes use a curriculum that teaches brief, poignant lessons about Jesus and how to follow him. In The Reef, we carefully balance lessons with play time. We recognize that younger kids need time to play and build social skills, so our lessons are kept short in order to allow them space to just have fun. During these classes, children are also fed a light snack, which is always free of any major allergens, but please be sure to let the Crosswind Kids Dream Team know of any dietary restrictions your child may have.

Pier 29

Elementary School

Your elementary school kids are going to love our Pier 29 class! This is a fun and engaging class to be a part of. In our Kindergarten through Fifth Grade class, we use High Voltage Kids curriculum. The first part of our time is spent hanging out together with games & activities, while including some fun story & sharing time. We believe that kids need to have time to play and spend time with their peers. During the rest of the time we sing songs, dance, hear an interactive Bible Story, watch videos and play games. We always make sure to combine an object lesson with a large group activity to get the kids involved in the lesson.
