The Crossing Kidz


Children’s Pastors Eric & Janie McPeake have over 20 years of experience in children’s ministry. Their desire is to partner with parents by providing them the tools they need to lead their kids into a growing relationship with Jesus.


The Crossing Kidz Mission

We have the same mission for all our kidz, ages 0-5th grade. Our mission is to glorify God by reaching the world, gathering with believers, and growing in the word. We desire to teach kids to grow in the word and to apply it to their lives. We want to teach them to be world changers who love and serve Jesus, who love and serve each other and want to reach the world by loving and serving others. We desire to be true to Scripture. We want to partner with parents as they pursue to live out the Gospel in their daily lives, and to fulfill the mission as parents to be the primary disciple-makers for their kids and to come alongside to be a part of the discipleship process.


Nursery (0 - 24 Months)

Your infant and/or toddler will feel God’s love through the love of His people when they enter the nursery door. They will experience a safe and secure environment with dedicated caregivers. Be assured that if your infant/toddler has a specific need you can let our nursery workers know and they will be well taken care of while you attend our adult service or life group.


Sprouts (2 - 4 Years Old)

Children in our Sprouts class will meet in a safe and secure environment with teachers who will not only share with them how much Jesus loves them through stories, songs, crafts, and playtime but they will feel the love of Jesus through His people who serve in our Sprouts class.


The Crossing Kidz (5 Years Old-4th Grade)

Our Children’s ministry is designed to bring the Bible alive through skits, games, stories and other activities. We feel it is important to incorporate these activities in order to keep their attention and stay on their level. They will meet in both large and small group settings while parents attend or serve during our gatherings. We are passionate about teaching kids about how much God loves them on their level so they will not only understand the Bible, but will learn how to apply God’s word in their everyday lives. Children have such complex minds that can only comprehend so much and when we bring it down to their level they will have a better understanding about what they are being taught. We have a team of committed volunteers who serve Jesus by serving you and your children. Our goal is to help parents raise children who love Jesus. It is our desire to build world changers for Jesus.

We meet in The Children’s area on Sundays at 8:30am and 11:00am, downstairs in the Children’s classes for small group at 10:00am and at 6:30pm on Wed. in The Children’s area. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for events outside of our regular services.
