Greenhouse Kids

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree..”

Matthew 13:31

At Greenhouse Kids, the children's ministry of CrossRoads, we desire that all the kids of CrossRoads would come to know Jesus and grow in their love for Him. We seek to partner with family units in discipling kids, and raising them to live on mission.

Children's Church starts Sunday, September 13th for

What to Expect on Sunday Morning

We currently have one service at 10am. Kids (ages 3+) get checked in at the Info Desk in the Café, and then go to worship with their parents. During the offering song, kids are released from the sanctuary and they meet the Children’s Director in the Café space. Then they are led up to the Fellowship Hall (on the second floor) for children’s church. Kids should wear their masks when walking from the Sanctuary to the Fellowship Hall, and can take them off for snack or when directed to by the Children’s Director. We currently are going through a series called The Good King, where kids will learn about how God is Good. Our goal is for the kids to learn the same topic that the parents are being taught.
Kids are in the Fellowship Hall for children’s church where siblings sit next to each other and spread out 6ft from other family units for social distancing purposes. We have a form that parents/guardians need to sign to opt kids into the ministry. Please see the covid19 guidelines below, and email Cassie for a children’s ministry opt in form.

COVID 19 Guidelines

  • Kids are checked in the café at the info desk.
  • Kids will sit with their parents for worship, and then be released to the cafe for kid’s ministry during the sermon.
  • Toys that cannot be easily wiped down and sanitized have been removed from the classrooms.
  • All other toys have been put in bins, so that the volunteers can control the number of toys that being used.
  • Each kid will have their own tray with pencils, crayons, markers, etc., that way kids are not sharing those items.
  • Family Unit Rule:
  • Family units (brothers and sisters) sit together, allowing for 6ft between each family unit.
  • Parents can opt in and sign a form specifying that their kids are allowed to sit with friends and list which friends their kids can sit with (this way if kids are already playing with each other outside of church they can also sit together at church).
  • At this time, in order to maintain social distancing. children’s ministry will only be offered to ages 3+. 
  • We ask that children 2 and under stay with their families during the service.
  • Siblings will sit together and 6ft from other family units, unless directly communicated to staff (see below)
  • Volunteers wear masks at all times unless actively teaching. At this point, they will remove their masks but will remain at the front of the room and will maintain 6 ft of distance from all children and staff.
  • Kids all ages wear masks as they walk to and from rooms. Once in the classroom or fellowship hall they are spread out/socially distanced and can take their mask off. Kids will be told when to take masks off (during snack, etc.)
  • Parents come into the back of the fellowship hall or classroom and avoid standing close together to pick up their kids, we ask them to exit one family unit at a time and respect social distancing. We will put 6ft markers and stickers on the ground to show where parents should stand.
  • If the kids are walked outside to the playground or to and from the sanctuary, we will use a rope with markers on it that show at least 4ft apart from each other while walking throughout the building.
