Impact the next generation
Have you ever looked at the face of a child when they experience something amazing for the first time? It is filled with awe, wonder, and excitement. You can’t help but be infected with that same awe when you witness it in a child. Unfortunately, we know there are tremendous weights and burdens that stifle that wonder and amazement in kids. Competing priorities, unresolved emotions, and worry are just a few of the current struggles facing our children today. And at the core of it all is sin.
Stones Crossing Kids, our Sunday morning children’s ministry, is designed to help every child experience that wonder and excitement by helping them know their value and identity in Jesus Christ. Central to this is the gospel—the message that the God of the universe loves them, cares for them, and forgives them. We want the children of Stones to be amazed by Jesus Christ and all that He accomplished for us in His life, death, and resurrection. We want our kids to know that trusting in Jesus Christ will overcome every doubt, worry, and fear they may face. Through God’s Word, kids CAN see who Jesus truly is, and why He is so amazing!
What will my kids be learning?
Through large group story-telling and small group discussions, our aim is to help every child understand the gospel message. We do this by teaching through the Bible using The Gospel Project for Kids. The Gospel Project takes kids on a Christ-centered, chronological journey through Scripture where kids discover how the gospel unfolds from Genesis through Revelation. Through these lessons, kids learn biblical doctrine and appropriate application for their age level. We believe that when kids truly experience the gospel their hearts are transformed.
How will your team keep my kids safe?
Each week your family will be assigned a unique four-digit code. This code is specific to your family and changes week to week. When you check-in, you will be given printable stickers with your child’s name and family code. One sticker is placed on the child, one is placed on the classroom check-in sheet, and then you receive a parent pick-up tag. Only those with the matching parent pick-up tag will be permitted to pick up that child. Volunteers are required to submit and pass a thorough background check encompassing both state and federal databases. Small Group Leaders and other key volunteers are required to be members of our church in good standing. Every volunteer is trained for emergency evacuation situations, as well as weather emergency situations. Evacuation maps are posted in each classroom.
Where should I go when I arrive?
When you arrive, our campus guides will make sure you and your kids are checked in and in the right classrooms. You can save time by pre-registering your kids! Your child will be assigned to a classroom based on age and/or grade level.
What if my child needs me during service?
If your child needs you during the service, your four-digit family code will appear on the side screens during the worship service. When your child’s number appears, please exit to the rear of the auditorium and a leader from Stones Crossing Kids will meet you with your child’s need and take you back to their classroom.
