Children’s Ministry

“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Matthew 19:14

What to Expect on Sunday Mornings…

Nursery – Crosswater offers nursery services for 6 weeks of age through 2 ½ years of age during all services on Sunday mornings.  Our nursery volunteers have been background checked and trained to make sure your child is safe and well cared for during their stay with us.  The nursery is located on the first floor of our Administration and Education building.

WEE-J.A.M. for Preschoolers – Crosswater offers a preschool worship service during all Sunday morning services.  We call our pre-k worship service WEE J.A.M. (Jesus and Me).  Wee Jam is comprised of high energy songs, an age appropriate lesson, videos, games, and more.  After Wee JAM children enjoy a snack (usually goldfish or pretzels, but a gluten free snack is available), coloring, and some structured play time.

Wee Jam meets upstairs in Room 205 (the orange room) at 9:45 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. for children that are in VPK and Kindergarten.

*Children 5 and under are downstairs for the 9:45 a.m. service. 

Wee Jam Jr. is downstairs for 4 year olds not yet in VPK and 3 year olds.  Both groups have a worship service specifically designed to meet their needs and attention spans.

Powerhouse – Powerhouse is our Sunday morning children’s program for 5 year olds through 5th grade.  Sunday morning Powerhouse includes children’s worship, age appropriate Bible studies, games, and much more.  Powerhouse is offered at all 3 services.  The Powerhouse is located in the upstairs of our Administration and Education building.  Enter through the door that says “Grade School” and one of our friendly greeters will help you get registered and show you where your children will be dropped off.
