Nursery

 
 

Your little one is going to love our Nursery – it is a fun and loving place to be. Your baby will be loved on and cared for while having a great time learning about God and connecting with other young children. We want you to be able to relax and focus on your time at worship, knowing that your child is having fun and learning in a safe and secure environment.

Can we give you a nursery tour?

Stop by the Nursery Check-in Counter any weekend at the beginning of any service for a tour of our nursery.

Do you have a new addition to your family?

Please take a moment to let us know by emailing Chante Mitchell for Highway 16, Kayla Whittle for Highway 154, or Chloe Walker for Senoia. We would love to celebrate with you by sending you a gift. We will also update your family’s record so that your little one will be ready for his first day in the nursery. Once your record is updated, you will begin to receive news regarding the nursery, the Dedicate class, baby dedication, and other events. Thank you for taking the time to share your good news with us!

 

Preschool

 
 

As each child enters into the “Reel Kids Ministry” we want to partner with parents to raise children to know 3 main truths. We call them our “Bottom Line”.

God Made Me.

God Loves Me.

Jesus Wants to be My Friend Forever.

This is a great foundation for each child to have in their heart as they become the next generation of disciples.

We are committed to giving preschoolers a place where they can worship like a preschooler! Their services are held at the same time as the adult services each weekend. Children may be checked in 15 minutes prior to each service.

Our high energy environment includes large group and small group teaching. Large group consists of creative storytelling, drama, and music. In small group they participate in fun, interactive activities to help them apply what they learned in large group. For more information on the preschool ministry, please contact Chante Mitchell.

 

Elementary

 
 

Reel Kids believes in the “Orange” strategy. The church is the light of the world (YELLOW) and the heart of the home is RED. When they are combined together it makes ORANGE. Together, they have the potential to make a greater impact on the next generation of disciples. Reel Kids approaches ministry with the end in mind. Before each child leaves our ministry we want them to know the HIGH 5s.

   God sent Jesus to give me life!

    God’s Word is true!

    God loves me know matter what!

    I need to love others the way God loves me!

    I need to make the wise choice!

We strive to provide children’s worship on their level. Their services are held at the same time as the adult services each weekend. Children will learn about God’s Word through a large group time including music, drama, video, and creative Bible stories. They will also participate in a small group time to follow up on the large group message. For more information on our children’s ministries, please contact Justin Goode.

We want you to be able to relax, knowing that your child is having fun and learning in a safe and secure environment. All of our adult volunteers are screened with a background check. Each classroom is staffed with at least two volunteers. Children’s classrooms open 15 minutes before each service.

God Time Cards - are tools you can use to talk to your child about what he/she is learning during the weekend service. Monthly Parent Cue Cards – are designed to help parents join the conversation we are having with the kids throughout the month.  Both of these tools are now combined in the Family Group Guide.  For more information, click here.

 

Unlimited

 
 

Welcome to UNLIMITED…our Special Needs Ministry! Crossroads Church strives to provide a place with families in our community that have special needs can come experience the love and acceptance that Jesus Christ has to offer. We offer an adaptable worship experience for your child. Our prayer is that your child and you will both be able to enjoy a meaningful worship experience and have a personal relationship with Christ.

 

When? UNLIMITED services are offered during the Sunday morning 11:00 worship service. Check in opens at 10:45 a.m.

 

Where?  We meet at our Hwy 16 campus in Studio 4.

 

We offer 3 different types of environments for your child. In order to make this a positive experience we would like to partner with you to help find the right learning environment for your child where they will be safe and can experience spiritual growth.

 

-    Typical Studios: These studios provide a high-energy learning environment with large group worship, teaching and small group break outs.

 

-    Sensory Studio 4: This studio provides a flexible, fun and adaptable environment with a little less stimulation than found in a typical studio. This studio uses a separate curriculum called “Play and Worship” that includes a Bible lesson, music, art and activities. This curriculum provides plenty of repetition for learning as each lesson is taught over a 5 week span.

 

-    A Blend: This may be an option of your child would do well experiencing a little bit of both environments. We will work with you to determine what blend would be best for your child.

 

 

Every student in UNLIMITED will be paired 1:1 with a trained buddy. All volunteers in our ministry are required to complete a background check.

 

It is our goal to not only serve your child but to also serve your family. We would love to help you get connected. If you have any questions or would like more information, please email unlimited@crossroadsnewnan.org.

 

**If at all possible, we ask families to contact us prior to visiting UNLIMITED so that we can ensure we have buddy ready for your child.

 

 

 

Baby Dedication

 
 

CONGRATULATIONS on the birth of your new baby! In the midst of all that is changing in your home with the addition of your new baby, we invite you to take a moment to focus on what really matters most.

Dedicate is an opportunity for new parents to present their child to the Lord and make public their commitment to teach their child the truths of the Christian faith, to set a Christian example before them, to bring their child up in the instruction and discipline of the Lord and to encourage their child to accept Christ as his or her Savior under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

To accomplish this, parents must dedicate time, love, attention, and so much more. No one will have more influence on your child than YOU! It is our hope that we can partner with you from the very beginning. We want to be your biggest fans, your strongest supporters, and your trusted guides as you raise your child to know what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Dedicate is more than a baby dedication event and is not an infant baptism. We believe that when people are old enough to understand what it means to put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, they should have the opportunity to make that choice for themselves. A preschooler may not be able to understand sin, forgiveness, the sacrifice our Savior made for us, and what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Dedicate is both the opportunity for you to take some time at the beginning of your journey as a parent to really think about what will matter the most in the life of your child; to really talk together and decide what you value and what you can do today that will have the greatest impact on your child’s future and a celebration of your commitment. We are excited to be a part of your family’s spiritual growth and are honored to be a part of this special time in your life.

Parents must attend the class in order to participate in the “Dedication Celebration.” “Dedication Celebrations” are held three times a year on Sunday afternoons at 4:00.

We look forward to celebrating this special event with you!
