Cross Way Kids!

Kids Way

Every Sunday during service, school-age kids (K-5th grade) begin in the worship service, and leave the service after a special children’s moment. Children in Kids Way will head out for their own lesson over the same scripture being preached in worship! Children will return to worship during the closing song.

CWK Bites

6-8pm | June 12 & 26, July 10 & 24

CWK Bites (said as: quick bites) are awesome family meal events that occur every other Tuesday night throughout June and July.

Format: 30 minutes of gathering, singing, and dancing, 60 minutes of family dinner/discussion facilitated by Rev. Emma Williams, our Children’s Pastor, and 30 minutes of games.

Many people have told us that it’s hard to incorporate faith into family life at home, so we wanted to create a resource to help! We hope that your entire family will join us at these meals. After we have fun singing and dancing together, we will sit around tables of ~8 people, and share in a family-style meal. Families will all sit together, and as we eat, Emma will facilitate our time as your children lead you in the spiritual practices they have learned and used in Kids Way.

Through this, families will learn what our kids have been doing each Sunday morning in Kids Way, and will learn how to incorporate faith and spiritual development into the family meal each night. Then we’ll end with games.

These meals are free, but we do encourage a love offering to help offset the cost of the meals. $5/person is the suggested donation, but please feel free to donate what you are able to afford. Cost will never be prohibitive for anyone to participate in this ministry.

CWK Books

June 19, July 3, 17, 31 and August 7th for the movie

CWK Books (said as: quick books) is a children’s book club, led by Pastor Emma, that will study “A Wrinkle in Time” on Tuesday evenings during the weeks in-between CWK Bites.

We will read three chapters per meeting, and have a reading guide you can complete for each meeting. You can find the first one here! 

We will end this book club by watching the movie together.
