                                                      Kids Crossing: partnering with parents to help their kids cross
                                                          over to a committed and growing relationship with Christ.

“Anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life.  He will not be found guilty.  He has crossed over from death to life.”   John 5:24

The most important crossing a child will make is the decision to commit their life to Christ.  The first step in helping kids cross over to life is introducing them to Jesus Christ and giving them opportunity to accept him as Lord of their life.  

The next step in helping kids cross over to life is equipping them to grow in their relationship with Christ.  Kids need to translate their faith in Jesus into their daily lives.  Growth occurs as a child understands and obeys God’s Word and loves and serves Him with all their heart, soul, mind and strength.

A bridge allows us to cross many obstacles, simple or complex!   Just as the obstacles are varied, so is a child’s ability to cross.  A few may need to be carried, others given a helping hand, while some need only to be shown the way and motivated.

Kid’s Crossing partners with families in providing the crossing point where we equip children and walk over life’s obstacles with them.

To connect kids to Christ, Family, Community, and their World.
