CBkids FAQs

Do I need to check my child in each week?

Yes, for safety reasons we ask that you check in your child each week. If they are staying for multiple services, please check them in for each service time.

My child wants to be with their sibling. Is that okay?

We understand that being in a new environment can be daunting for your little one and we try to accommodate their needs whenever possible. If siblings from two different age groups choose to stay together, we ask that they both participate in the younger age group so that both can understand the daily lesson. Our goal is for them to eventually feel comfortable in their own small group area.

My child has special needs. Is he/she welcome to participate?

We believe that God created and loves all children and we do too! We would love to have your child join us in either our CBkids programs or main service. If certain accommodations are needed, please let us know and we will do our best to provide them. More questions? Contact our special needs coordinator, Jeanine Robbins, or fill out our questionnaire.

My child has allergies. Do you serve snacks?

We try to be very allergy conscious in all our snacks. Our nursery – 3.5 year olds are offered Kix each week. Our older grades only have snacks as they pertain to the daily lesson, and a sign will be posted at our check-in table on the days when snacks are provided.

Can my child be baptized?

At Crossbridge, we practice Baby Dedications (BabyD) instead of infant baptisms. We have a BabyD class twice a year (fall and spring). BabyD is a step the parents take in committing to raise their child to know Jesus and become more like Him. For more information on our BabyD classes, click here.

At Crossbridge, we practice a believer’s baptism for those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their savior. We encourage students who are in 6th grade and older and are interested in Baptism to speak with Pastor Jimmy. For more information on children and baptism, please speak with Pastor Jimmy, Pastor Wil, or our CBkids Director, Becky Frey.

When can my child take communion?

We believe that taking communion is an act of remembrance for a person who is in a relationship with Jesus. Starting in third grade, the students will have the opportunity to partake in communion. It is up to you and your child to determine if they are ready for this step. We have a Parent Handbook & Student Workbook that explains in detail what we believe about communion.

What do you teach our kids about missions and giving?

We believe it is important for kids to be introduced to global missions at a young age. Therefore, during our worship and large group times, we collect money for two Compassion International children – Tanya & Isaias, and speak about how they can impact other children’s lives around the world through their giving.

For all other questions, please email Becky Frey, CBkids Director.
