Children's Classes

Crosswalk kids will learn about building a kingdom.

CrossWalk, St. Andrew’s Sunday morning program for four year olds through fifth graders, is a series of workshop-based classes, which focus on one Bible story each month. The children get to explore the story in a different workshop each week. Workshops can include art, drama, science, storytelling, cooking, games, and video. God has created us as unique individuals, and we all learn differently. CrossWalk embraces our children’s different learning styles and helps them internalize these basic stories of the faith.

CrossWalk begins each Sunday at 9:45 with Gathering Time in Room 104 in the Education Building behind the main church building. Children then leave with teenage or adult shepherds and go to their workshops for the week. Parents must pick up their children from the classrooms.

Students will learn about how we can build a world that God wants, both with stones and mortar and with faithful people in CrossWalk’s 2017-2018 theme, “Building God’s Kingdom.”

December Crosswalk - JESUS’ BIRTH THROUGH ISAIAH’S EYES

The story of the coming of the Messiah through the eyes of the prophet Isaiah will be the CrossWalk theme during the month of December. All CrossWalk classes will meet together on Sunday, December 3 for a special storytelling session with Lisa Cross, who will talk about being a prophet and about the wonderful gift of God to come. A cooking workshop and an art workshop will fill the following two Sundays in December as children continue to explore the story of Jesus through Isaiah’s prophesies.

CrossWalk begins each Sunday in Room 104 on the first floor of the education building.  There will be no church school on either
Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve.
