The Ability Ministry of Cross Church is a ministry designed to meet the unique needs of EVERY person from birth to adulthood. We focus on their abilities, rather than disabilities. Every person is uniquely designed by God and it is our goal to help them understand God’s purpose and plan for their lives. We want your experience at Cross Church to be the best it possibly can be. In order to accomplish that, we need to know a few things about you and your child in order to ensure we can provide for his/her unique needs. Please click here to learn more.
We offer high energy, creative, and interactive large group experiences designed especially for kids as a part of BOTH the 9:15 and the 10:55 hour. Each of these services focus on the same bible content but are unique in presentation and teaching elements. This service allows them to worship God the way they were wired while God's Word is taught in a way they can relate and apply to their own lives. Kids Church is held in our state of the art Kidz Theater on the south side of the building. Check in for all Sunday kids ministries will be in the kids theater area.
Because we believe that the most effective learning happens through relationships, we also offer small groups as a part of BOTH the 9:15 and 10:55 hour. Children are divided into age graded classes with small group leaders who reinforce the bible content introduced in large group. They will take a deeper look at what the bible says and experience fun, hands on activities to further connect with the day's lesson. Each hour is a different presentation of the lesson with different small group leaders for each hour. Check in for all Sunday kids programming is in the kids area.
New Believer's Class
Children Kindergarten – 5th grade | 9:15 hour only
Beginning on April 7 and will conclude on April 30 (We will skip April 16 for Easter).
If your child has made a decision to follow Christ, they are invited to attend this new Christian's class. In this four- week course, they will study what it means to be a Christian and how to follow Jesus' example through baptism and the Lord's Supper. In addition they will be studying spiritual gifts and how to share their testimony. Each child will receive a workbook that they will be going through in class, and at home. The course will conclude with a “Re-Happy Birthday party” on April 30 at 12:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Gym. The whole family is invited to enjoy pizza and cake as we celebrate your child’s decision and completion of this course! The New Believer’s class will be offered again in the fall for K-5th graders that are interested.
