Time: 5:45PM to 7:30PM
Coordinator: Heath Bryant

Mid Week for kids meets every Wednesday from 5:45–7:30 p.m.

Mid Week for kids is a combination of AWANA and Music and Motion. Bible study, Scripture memory, games, music, motion and lots of fun!

AwanaAwana is an organization that helps churches and parents raise children and youth to know, love and serve Christ. Awana is the only organization with fully integrated evangelism and discipleship program for children. Your child will be a part of weekly programs and special events that introduce children to Jesus Christ and build a biblical foundation for faith. The $25 cost only covers the registration fee, which will be used in part for your child to purchase store items and awards once they are eligible. Parents will need to purchase a handbook and uniform for their child as they progress throughout the semester, which will be an additional cost. Price varies by club. 

Cubbies

Children Age 3 (by 8/1/15 & toilet trained),and K4 AWANA Cubbies Club provides a framework for spiritual training in the home under the supervision of the parents. One handbook, filled with Bible verses and activities for parents to do with their children at home, is completed each year. Club activities include games, puppets, crafts and verses that are said to receive stickers and patches for the Cubbie blue vest. Story Time reinforces the Bible verses being learned.

Sparks

Students K-5 through Grade 2 AWANA Sparks’ handbooks teach basic truths about God, Jesus Christ, salvation and the Bible. A clear and consistent presentation of the Gospel message is made each week. The Bible is presented chronologically and details about Bible characters are told in captivating biographies. Students earn jewels to place in their aviator wings as they complete the three hand-books: HangGlider, WingRunner, and SkyStormer. They will memorize 65 verses within three years. Game Time offers team and individual competitions that are fast-paced and high-energy. The kids love this Game Time.

T and T

The four handbooks are each built around eight different questions about God, the Bible, salvation and Christian living. Students memorize eight different Bible passages for each question.

Time: 6:00PM to 9:30PM
Coordinator: Dorothy Oxier

FNO is for children birth – 5th grade.

Friday Night Out (FNO) has been and continues to be an excellent opportunity for parents involved in Cross Church small groups. Participate in a Small Group the weeks prior to the Friday Night Out date desired to receive childcare. Childcare is provided to individuals with children fifth grade or younger between the hours of 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Registrations must be in by midnight the Wednesday prior. Sorry, no exceptions to the rules!

With the rising costs associated with this ministry we have made the decision to charge a very small fee to reduce cost overages. This new fee will be $10 for the entire evening, per family, whether you have one child or multiple children. This means for $10 your family receives childcare from 6:00-9:30 p.m.

It is our desire to be the very best stewards we can with what God has given to us. This change will allow us to continue to offer this great opportunity to small group participants while still offering an incredible value when compared to the childcare alternatives out there today.

If you have any questions prior to registering, please email Dorothy Oxier at the Springdale Campus.

Parent/Child Dedication Parent/Child Dedication May 8th 2016

Location/Venue: All Campuses

Online registration is now closed.

It is a privilege to share with you in this special service in which you, as a parent, give back to God what He has so graciously given you. This service is not just for babies, but children of all ages.

Dedication is not baptism or a sacrament of any kind. It does not impart salvation on the child. Dedication is the parent’s commitment to God to raise the child in His ways. Cross Church dedicates children because in Luke 2:22-25 we read that as a baby, his parents dedicated Jesus. In Mark 10:16 we see Jesus bestowing blessings on the children. The dedication ceremony is a time to publicly make that commitment to pray for the child, love the child and guide the child toward a personal relationship with Christ.

Springdale

Dedication will take place during our 9:15 a.m. service. We will also be having a Parent/Child Dedication Class on Sunday, May 1 at 10:55 a.m. in the Bookstore.

Our story is about four Light Runners who are given the space-mission of a lifetime; to save the universe from impending doom. They must journey across the galaxy in search of a mysterious Star Particle. On their journey, they find out what they are made of and who the enemy really is.
