Schedule

Each night consists of Bible lesson, prayer/discussion, games and fun. This gives us a chance to dig into God's word in a safe space where trusted adults can help us grow our faith. Occasionally an off-site event or service project will be planned and you will have to give specific permission to participate in that.

When Does CrossTraining Meet?

Thursday nights, 6:15-7:45pm (Cubbies, our 3-4yr olds, gets out at 7:30)

End of September-End of April

What do CrossTraining groups look like?
  • 50% Bible time, Discussion and Prayer
  • 50% Activity time
  • 8-12 kids per group
  • 2-3 SGLs (Small Group Leaders) per group
Why are small groups good for kids?
  • Small groups create a safe place for kids
  • Small group leaders have the time and ability to invest in the kids and build authentic relationships
  • Leaders can lead with authentic faith, encouraging kids in their spiritual walk also
Will CrossTraining Groups support parents?
  • YES!  We only have them for 1.5 hours during the week.  Parents are still the primary disciple-making force in a child's life.  
  • Resources will be provided on how to engage kids in conversation about what they are learning
  • SGLs will be building relationships with parents as they drop off and pickup, or even other times as applicable, in order to support the family
  • Parents may be invited to assist occasionally with a group or activity, further plugging them into this faith community


Kid/Family Events

Camp Memorization Program

This is a yearly opportunity for kids to memorize scripture, take sermon notes in church and participate in KidzChurch with the added bonus of earning a scholarship toward an approved Christian summer camp. We hope this opportunity encourages kids to internalize scripture and build relationships with peers and adults who help them grow in their faith.

Please check out this year's updates in this 3 minute video.

Daddy Daughter Date

Each February we host a time for Dad and Daughter to go out together and enjoy uninterrupted conversation! Dad-figures welcome too.

Mother Son Adventure

Join us for fun and adventure. This is a yearly event. Our next one will be in sprint 2023.

We're hoping this gives mom(or mom-figure) some dedicated time to invest in relationship with her boy(s) and show them just how much they are loved and valued.

Vacation Bible Club

One week per year we gather kids and volunteers for an epic week of learning about Jesus, playing together and using our talents.

Save the Date for 2023: June 26-30 followed by a family fun event on the following weekend.

Fall Fest

This year's theme: Trick Shots and Treats

Last Friday of October yearly

Start practicing those bottle flips, ping pong ball bounces, and signature tricks! Trick Shots & Treats is going to be a legendary event! Inspired by "Dude Perfect," kids and adults alike will have a blast competing in epic challenges while scoring candy.

Christmas Campout

December Family Event

Gather around the "campfire," friends! It’s time to celebrate the season with a fun camping trip. The best part is . . . you don't have to go anywhere! Bring the great outdoors to you with a cozy, indoor Christmas Campout. We’ll use twinkling lights, pop-up tents, camp-themed snacks, fun crafts, and exciting activities to help kids and families spend time together learning about the gift of Jesus.
