Welcome to Crossings Kids!

Here you will find some of the programs and activities we offer at The Church @ Clayton Crossings for kids birth through 5th grade.

Crossings Kids in grades 3-5 have an opportunity to attend CentriKid Camp this summer, July 9-13, in Lynchburg, VA. This is a great opportunity for your child to spend a week of their summer connecting with Christ.  The theme this year is Blueprint: God’s Design. We will be learning about God’s design for us and who we are in Christ. We will learn how we are His workmanship and how we are created in His image. God’s blueprint shows us that we are truly loved, completely forgiven, and prepared for a purpose to share the Gospel.

The cost to attend camp is $400, including transportation. Registrations will be taken through February 14 with a $50 deposit. You can register your child for camp below. On the registration form you will find suggested monthly payment options with the balance due by June 15. We are excited about what God is doing in the lives of our kids at The Church @ Clayton Crossings! Thank you for partnering with us as we develop our children into Christ-followers.

Nursery & Preschool

Nursery and Preschool

We have rooms in our preschool hallway specifically designed for nursery-age and preschool development during both of our Sunday services. Our volunteers are screened and trained to deliver the proper care for your child so that you can attend worship service with an easy mind knowing your child is well cared for.

CHILD CHECK-IN PROCEDURES

The first time you bring your child to the preschool you will need to stop at our Preschool Welcome Desk and fill out a brief information sheet on your child. If there are allergies or medical concerns for your child, please make us aware of that information as well. All of this information is then put into our computer system and helps us provide the best that we can for your child while they are in our care.

When you check your child in on one of our of our iPads located in front of the Children’s Welcome Desk you will be given a name tag sticker to place on your child, and a sticker with a pick up number that you will need to keep with you and return when checking your child out. This prevents anyone but the person with the slip from checking out your child. We will use the pick-up number on the screens in the Worship Center to let you know if your child is having any concerns.  We have friendly and helpful staff and volunteers that will be happy to answer any questions you have and will work with you and your child to make the drop off transition as easy as possible.

At the conclusion of the service you will simply need to bring the pick-up slip you received during check-in and give it to the teacher in your child’s room.

Wellness Policy

Please be considerate of others when determining whether your child should be in the nursery or not. For the sake of the other children and volunteers, please do not bring your child to the preschool hallway if they have experienced any of the following symptoms within the past 24 hours:

  • Fever (100 degrees or more)
    • Pink Eye (Conjunctivitis)
    • Vomiting or Diarrhea
    • Persistent coughing or bringing up phlegm
    • Chicken Pox
    • Discharge from eyes, ears or nose
    • Any rash (except diaper)
    • Diagnosed with/or being treated for a communicable disease

If any of these symptoms arise while your child is in our care, your child will be removed from the nursery and you will be contacted immediately.

If your child comes down with a contagious disease (lice, chicken pox, meningitis, hand, foot, mouth disease, etc.) and you did not know about it before they had contact with other children in our church please contact us at 919.550.6877.

Crossings Kids

Crossings Kids on Sunday Mornings

We’re so excited for all God’s going to teach our kids on Sunday mornings!

If your child is in 1st-3rd grade, your child will (actively!) learn about God by learning practical and age-appropriate stories in the Bible.

If they are in 4th-5th grade they will engage in a more interactive teaching that helps them develop a personal relationship with God.

WHAT DOES SUNDAY LOOK LIKE?

Each Sunday all kids in 1st – 5th grade will gather together in the Kids Worship Room (D1) for an opening which includes high energy worship and a large group lesson. This makes drop-off and pick-up extra simple for you! Just print off a name-tag at one of our iPads in the Children’s Welcome Desk area and drop your child off. If you have a preschooler, they are dropped off in their classroom right away in the preschool hallway.

When service is over, you bring the sticker with the pick-up number that you received at the iPad and pick your child up in the Kids Worship Room (Room D1).

We offer Crossings Kids on Sunday mornings during both the 9:00 and 10:30 services.

Wednesday Night Live

What is Wednesday Night live?

Wednesday Night Live is a Wednesday night kids program that runs from 7:00- 8:00pm September- May following the Johnston County Schools calendar.

It engages kids, focuses them on the truth of God’s Word, encourages memorization and community, and puts parents in the driver’s seat to help their child understand who God is. We have an exciting year planned and we hope that your children will join us on this journey!

The quick highlights: All kids, in all grades, are learning the same focused topic during the night. They all memorize the same verse (age contextualized – the younger kids learn a shorter version, of course), they all hear teaching on the same topic, and they all get in your car at the end of the night excited to come back. Each night has a theme and a scripture verse, and kids earn prizes for bringing their Bible, memorizing the verse, and dressing up for the theme night.
