Small Groups For Kids and Youth (Starting September 11)

Sunday School for our elementary kids and youth will all be meeting on the second floor of the education wing.  K-8th Grade will all be using the new Living the Word curriculum.  Every week our students will use a variety of learning styles to focus in our CrossRoads Bible reading for the day.  We are inviting every student to bring their own Bible with them and if they don’t have one, we have a variety of age appropriate Bibles in our classrooms.


Pastor’s Forum – CrossRoads 101

Pastor Tom (PT) will be leading a class in the Chapel to introduce you how to use your Bible, how to make the most of your weekly CrossRoads Bible studies, and how to form/be a part of a Church After Hours@_______ small group.  From August 28 – October 23 (8 weeks) we will be meeting in the chapel.  So come join the fun and let’s dig into the Bible and CrossRoads together.
