We recognize that no one has more influence over a child than his or her parents. Each year, we spend about 40 hours with your kids in church, but you spend about 3,000 hours with your kids at home! Because of this, we believe what happens at home is more important than what happens at church.
We are committed to partnering with parents by providing a plan that will give them the tools they need to support their kids spiritually. We provide a number of resources for you to use at home throughout each week in order to invest in your children.
Small Talk for First Look Kids (2 years old through prekindergarten)
This is take-home material from our weekly preschool lessons that helps to connect families to an everyday faith at home. At the beginning of each month, these may be downloaded HERE (September), we also email them to parents and have a printout available at Crossroads to take home.
God-Time Cards for UpStreet Kids (Kindergarten- 5th grade)
God-Time cards are a take home devotional for elementary students to complete four days per week. Each devotion includes a verse, an explanation of the verse, how to apply it and a suggested prayer. At the beginning of each month, these may be downloaded below and they are provided on a weekly basis to each child in their small groups. Click HERE to learn more about how to use this resource at home.
