Children’s New Believers Class

Did you know that CrossRidge Church offers a Children’s New Believers Class for children who have recently accepted Christ? This is a wonderful class that helps them better understand the decision that they have made and also helps them to take next steps as a new Christian. We will learn things like: What is a personal testimony? Why do we give money to the church?  What do they do with it? What is that weird bread they eat and tiny juice cup they drink in…

Family God’s Way

Happy Father’s Day to all the father figures out there. You may be a biological father to a child.  You may be a stepfather to a child.  You may be an adoptive father to a child.  You may be a father-in-law to someone.  You may be an involved fatherly figure in the life of a child.  You may be a grandfather involved in the raising of children.  Or you may not be a father at all.  This day is wonderful…

Words Of Encouragement

Faith Builders, here are a few words of encouragement for your summer! S Spend time each day with Jesus in prayer and scripture. U Understand that it is ok to say no sometimes, we can’t do everything. M Make memories with your spouse and children, go on adventures. M Messes are ok when we are learning or having fun. E Everything gets done quicker when we all work together, the work is lighter when we all help. R Rest, relax,…

Teach Your Children To Be Givers

Are you teaching your children to be givers?  Do you model a life of giving?  Do your children see you holding your time, talents and treasures loosely so you can give quickly when opportunity arises?  Do you help your children understand that everything that comes our way is a gift from God?  We get to decide what to do with it, too.  One part of our giving is to the Lord.  As we give our tithe to the church, we…

School’s Out For Summer

Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a real blessing.”  Psalm 127:3 School’s out for summer!  Thank you, Jesus.  Summer break can bring slower paced mornings.  Summer can bring pajama days.  Summer can also bring sibling fights.  Summer can bring, “I’m bored.  There’s nothing to do!”  I want to encourage you to be intentional with your summer.  Having some goals or objectives can help your summer be kinder and less scattered.  I am not suggesting that you plan each day…

Summer Discipleship

Do you know anyone who seems to know Jesus so well, that you wonder how that happened or if you might could ever know Him in that same manner?  There are people in our lives that we look up to and hope to grow up to be spiritually mature like them.  Well, I have some news, a true fact, “No one gets close to Jesus on accident.”  If you want to come to know Jesus in a very real way,…

Finish Strong

My friends, are you counting down the days that are left of school?  Do you have a paper chain showing how many more crazy mornings are left until summer?  Do you dream of mornings with no rushing around looking for forms that are due?  Have the lunches you pack come down to chips and fruit snacks?  Do you long for mornings where the pace is slower, and the words are kinder?  You are almost there!  Let me take a minute…

Praise For Moms

Mother’s Day is Sunday and what a blessing it is to remember and honor our mothers.  Some of us are mothers, some of us still have our mothers, some of us have mother figures we look up to.  We see you.  You are making tiny disciples in your home and it can be overwhelming at times!  Here is a tiny glimpse of what we see you doing and being as you parent your children.  We love you.  We give thanks…

It Can All Start With The Ten Commandments

This week’s online Sunday School lesson is on the Ten Commandments.  God gave us these ten rules to keep us safe and help us to live lives that point to God and His holiness.  Are they easy?  Not always.  They are not easy for us grownups or our children.  Being familiar with the things that matter to God is important for us parents, so we can better live them out and model them to our children.  Living God’s way and…

Don’t Miss Out – Time Is Passing!

Time passes quickly when you are having a good time. We have been experiencing good times for sure since we are able to meet in person and on campus again for worship and children’s activities.  It is so very good to see your faces and to be able to teach our littles about the love of God!  We have also been signing up our children for Mini Camp and Preteen Camp.  We really need to get everyone signed up as…
