What to Expect    Sunday Mornings    Family Opportunities 

 

CWUMC KIDS ~ WHAT TO EXPECT

Sunday School at Cross Winds is where faith is reinforced... it begins and is learned at home!  At Cross Winds, we partner with families to provide an ALL ENCOMPASSING LIFE experience where God is central!  

Have your kids join us for large group and age specific experiences, and get the resources you need to continue the journey at home!

Because with the Love of family and the Light of church, Kids can grow up knowing that they are made in God’s image and Jesus is their friend!

  • Small Group Leaders walking with kids in faith journey.
  • Large Group Energy with kids eagerly learning about Jesus, making friends, and loving church.
  • Special family lessons on Baptism, Bibles, Communion, and more!
  • Meaningful Service Projects throughout the year.
  • Learning all the classic kid church songs…and awesome new ones.
  • Christmas and Easter Events, Summer Camps and Fun Family opportunities!
  • Special 3rd-5th grade events monthly (Crew 345)…think fun AND doing good for others outside of Sunday Mornings!
