It’s a New Year at CrossRoads Kids!
Hello CrossRoads Kids and Families!
Hope you had a chance to enjoy lots of sunshine this summer, as well as an abundance of God’s love. We sure did!
Our team is very excited about the new year at CrossRoads Kids! Our first day in the new grades will be September 14th. Welcome to all the new Kinders and new children, as well as those moving up grades! It will be so great to have you with us discovering God’s Big Story and the adventure He has planned for you!
Leader Equip training will take place on September 7th during both morning services. We hope to have all people who serve with our K-6 children attend one of those times (9:00-10:30 or 11:00-12:30am).
Summertime at CrossRoads Kids involved lots of awesome Bible stories and lessons as well as times for families to connect. We hosted three Family Fun Days, one at Rotary Park, one at the Splash Park and one at Little Chief Park, and all of them were sunny days!
The little water guns and treats were sure a hit! Families commented that they loved getting to know some new people and watching their children make new CrossRoads friends. If you would like to organize another Family Fun Day (summer, fall, winter or spring) and assist with set-up and clean-up, we would be delighted to advertise for you and let you use all of our toys. Let Brenda or Melissa know if you are interested in this!
We sure appreciate all the people who served over the summer, some of whom are new people on our Serve teams, some college students, some staff family members :), as well as people on the regular Serve team who were able to pitch in while they were in town this summer. THANK YOU to each of you.
We are looking forward to meeting the people that God is nudging to serve with His children this year and to re-connecting with our amazing team members. Please consider joining a Serve team by helping in a classroom two Sundays (one service only) per month. I’m looking forward to hearing from you if you feel this is where God is calling you….
If you have a child going into Grade 1 in the fall, be sure to attend one of our Faith at Home events during services on September 14th in the Grade 1 classroom, hosted by Pastor Barry. Faith At Home events are a great way to get to know some other families with children in Grade 1.
We would love to post photos from Sundays and our events. Please let us know if you would not like your child’s photo (no names will be shown) included. Thanks!
Can’t wait to meet each of you and to get to know your families.
Joining you in the delight of pointing your children to Jesus,
Pastor Brenda and team
