Crosswinds Kids Ministry has some super exciting news! Starting THIS week, Sunday, May 24, we are releasing our first online Kids Ministry service! This will be a time for kids to see some familiar faces as we worship, laugh, review our memory verse and virtue for the month, and focus on each week's bottom line. Kids services will be available to watch any time, starting at 8:00am on Sunday morning, and new services will be released weekly. Simply click the link below to tune in to this week's service! We are excited for a fresh way to bring Kids Ministry into your homes!
These days we are all missing so much of our regular routine. That includes seeing smiling familiar faces on Sunday mornings! We are excited to offer families of Crosswinds Kids Ministry an opportunity to connect during our time away from church! Kids are now able to connect on a smaller scale! We are providing a weekly opportunity for our preschoolers, one for Kindergarten through 2nd grade, and another for 3rd through 5th graders! For our preschoolers, look for a special prerecorded video from your small group leaders included in the Weekly Family Connection. This week, Mr. Teddy will be sharing with our preschoolers! For our kids in Kindergarten through 2nd grade, families will be receiving an invite for a Zoom meeting that will take place at 2pm on Sundays! This week, Ms. Tracie will be leading this Zoom! If you have a child in 3rd through 5th grade, you will receive an invite for a Zoom meeting that will take place at 10am on Sundays! This week, Mr. Chris and Ms. Jeni will be leading this Zoom! In order to get the most out of these opportunities, we are asking families to make every effort to tune in to our brand-new Kids Ministry online service, or view the video presentations provided for your age group BEFORE! This is why we are sending the Weekly Family Connection out a day early, to give more time to view. We are excited to provide families with new ways to engage with Kids Ministry at Crosswinds!
kids church at home!
Below you will find some things that are very familiar to your child and resources to help you have a fun "kids service" in your home! Depending on your child's age, check out the "parent guide." You can then watch the included videos and leverage the activities and God Time Cards.

For your reference, " First Look" is our preschool curriculum, " Elementary" is geared toward K-3, and "Preteen" targets 4th and 5th grade, but is also appropriate for 3rd grade.

a a note from our sponsor child!a
We recently received a note from Diana, one of the children that Kids Ministry sponsors at Children's Nest Orphanage in Zambia! The print is difficult to read due to the color. Diana writes, "I want to say thank you very much for sponsoring me. I love you." Isn't it neat to see that our Joy Box offering is helping to show Jesus' love to others so far away?

Teaching Your Kids to Pray
While   COVID-19 continues to affect the physical world, its impact also includes the mental health of adults and children alike.

Kids are struggling with sad, lonely, scared, and anxious thoughts. With all the change happening in our world, it is important that we show them how to lean on Jesus.

Teach your kids about prayer with these helpful tips...
The Parent Cue App
We recommend utilizing what is known as the "Parent Cue App." It’s designed to help parents connect with the heart of their child every week through Bible based content and practical things to say and do with their children.

The content is age specific, connected to Crosswinds Kids Min teaching focus and based on the number of weeks your children have left till graduation.

When you register, simply use Crosswinds' zip code of "14424" to connect to us.
