Children

"Let the little children come to me."

Our children are important at Holy Cross. Our programs are designed to be educational and fun. We feel we are partners with each parent to raise up Christians TOGETHER! Not only do we have two strong educational programs, on Sunday and again on Wednesday, but we offer activities throughout the year as well. 

The purpose of Children's Ministry at Holy Cross is to help our children grow spiritually, have a personal relationship with Jesus, and to nurture faith that is built on the Word of God.  We will build relationships within our church and reach out to others within our community.  Our children will praise God in worship, prayer, music and drama in a creative, fun atmosphere.  Our programs will guide them through age appropriate activities that carry them into Youth Ministries and beyond, with active spiritual lives.

Worship

One thing you will notice as you enter our Worship Services is that we have gone to great lengths to have our children in worship. We know kids make noise, but we also know how important it is for their faith to see adults worshiping their Savior. We do offer a Busy Bag Ministry for our toddlers and preschoolers.  These bags are filled with quiet activities for the children and we ask that you return them as you exit the Sanctuary each week.  As they grow and develop in our programs, they will begin learning responsive prayers, The Lord's Prayer, and much more. As they grow, so will their participation in the service. This is an intentional act on our part! So join us TOGETHER as a family, and WORSHIP JESUS OUR SAVIOR!
(A nursery is available for feisty infants/toddlers/preschoolers staffed by trusted, paid adults in room B-8.)
