Midweek Programming
Currently paused.  When programming is in session, children enrolled in 3K- 5th grade are invited to an all-church dinner, followed by programing that nurtures Christian growth with opportunities for multi-generational interaction. Children learn scripture and bible stories through games, crafts, and song in a welcoming and inclusive environment. 

Children’s Worship
Currently paused.  When in session, children ages four through first grade exit the sanctuary after the Children’s Message during worship to attend a service designed specifically for them. This ministry allows children to learn what it means to worship, how to worship, and why it is important. Trained Worship Leaders lead the ageappropriate worship service. 

Vacation Bible School (VBS)
VBS is a great week of fun and special adventure at the beginning of summer for children enrolled in 3K through grade 4. We explore God’s love through worship, games, crafts, music, storytelling and more!  

Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS)
MOPS International offers mothers of young children a place to find friendship with other moms in a supportive and loving environment:
• MOPS is not a Bible study. Instead, its ministry focuses on relationships and communicating the love of Jesus Christ.
• MOPS welcomes any mom of children, birth through age five.
• Crossroads Presbyterian Church hosts a MOPS program the first and third Thursday morning of every month from 9:00 to 11:15 a.m. from September through May
