On Sunday mornings bring your children to Kids Connect. We will check them in quickly and have a light snack available. At both the 8:30 and 10:00 services we have a great team of volunteers who love kids and love sharing Jesus with them. We use large screen projection to engage them in contemporary worship music and a video-supported Bible lesson. We break into smaller age-related groups to dig a little deeper into the main point of the day then gather back to wrap it all up. Third and fourth graders have their own room with a little more “big kid” tone. You are welcome to spend a Sunday with us to see what we do.
Our preteens participate in music worship at 10:00 with the adults then move to their own classroom for Bible study and lessons about putting God’s word to work in their lives. We have a rotation of awesome teachers who get to know our preteens, and Rachel Smith coordinates the weekly ministry and the once-a-month fun activities and service projects.
Donnie Shaw leads our student ministry which meets every Wednesday at 6:00 pm. Students in grades 7-12 order pizza and hang out until around 6:30 when they start Bible lessons and group studies.
Students get together for activity-based outreach every Sunday. Whether it’s ultimate Frisbee at the park, Octoball, or a Nerf dart war at the church they have a great time being together. It’s a perfect chance to check out the group whether you are “all in” for the games or want to watch from the sides and see how it all turns out.
Disciple Now (DNow) is a multi-church community event in the winter. Our students spend two nights in host homes with dynamic Bible study leaders and join with several hundred other students from area churches for high-energy worship, outrageous recreation, and life-changing messages. Back at the host homes, leaders bring the themed message in close for late night discussion. Your students will come home changed for Christ.
In late summer CrossRoads students attend Crossings camp where they spend a week bonding as a group, engaging with Crossings college-age leaders, and enjoying top-quality recreation at the Kentucky Lake facility. Ask a veteran of Crossings and find out about this life-changing week.
Donnie and Kayleen Shaw welcome post high school students to join them at their home every Wednesday evening. Whether you are looking for connection to other like-minded people on campus, working to stay in God’s will with a new job after high school, preparing for the next step in God’s plan with a career or the military, you will find a home with this group. They laugh and share their week, but they plunge unafraid into the deeper truth of God’s word.
