Our children are gifts from God that he gives to parents for care, training and joy. We believe the best way Crossway Church can invest in children is to build up their parents in the gospel. We want to be sure that our members to whom God has given children are equipped to preach the glorious gospel to their families and to help them to live in the grace of God.
To these ends we provide children's ministry classes during our Sunday meeting up to grade 5. Our children's ministry teachers present Scripture clearly and give the children a resource page so parents can follow up at home. This venue allows our parents to receive the Sunday morning teaching in an undistracted fashion.
Security for our children is vital. Our children's ministry teachers are screened with an application and training process that include background checks in accordance with PA Dept. of Human Services guidelines. There are always two or more adults present with the children, and children are matched to their parents/guardians with nametags at dismissal time.
Families with children ages 12 & under are invited to join us for our two annual Family Nites. At the Christmas Tree Lighting, join us as we work together to make ornaments, sing carols and light the tree; all while enjoying cookies & hot cocoa. In May, put your skills to the test at the Shape N Race Derby and see if your family can take home one of our top prizes.
