CrossLife Elementary

Hear the heart behind CrossLife Elementary from our Minister of Kids, Tommy Larison

"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth."

3 John 1:4

We want your child to feel safe, loved and known. It is our privilege to partner with you in raising the next generation of world changers to love Jesus and know Him personally.

Plan a Sunday Visit

What is a Sunday Like?

Our priority is for children to know God personally so they can begin to walk with Him daily. Our purpose is to grow the mind and heart of every child, adapting and meeting them at every stage of development. We offer both Kids Worship and Small Groups.  We open our doors at 9 AM to allow children to have some fun in the gym playing basketball, hula hooping, playing with cars, building with magnet tiles, and more. This way you can drop your children off and get to either a small group or worship on time. 

Kids Worship

Kids Worship services offer a time of kid-friendly worship and a Bible message designed specifically for their age group.

9:30 a.m. | Kindergartners-2nd graders
11:00 a.m. | 3rd - 5th graders

Small Groups

We desire to see your child with a smile, a new friend and a greater understanding of the character of Christ! Our committed leaders teach a gospel-centered curriculum, “Gospel Project,” to ensure that K-5th graders know the stories of the Bible and how every story points to Jesus!
9:30 a.m. | 3rd - 5th graders
11:00 a.m. | Kindergartners - 2nd graders

First Time Guest Card

If it is your first time visiting us, we want to make your visit as smooth as possible. To help save some time on Sunday morning, you can print and complete our First Time Guest card ahead of time and bring it with you on Sunday morning,

Upcoming Elementary Events

Frequently Asked Questions

Separation Anxiety

We understand that leaving your child in a new environment can cause anxiety for some parents. We have no doubt that if you bring your child he or she will be asking when they can return. Even those who struggle with separation anxiety - a very normal part of childhood development - learn to love coming to CrossLife Elementary if they are brought consistently for 5-6 weeks by parents who are positive and express confidence in their child's ability to adjust.

Safety & Security

We take your child's safety and security very seriously and have many measures in place to ensure that you can leave your child without hesitation. Some examples include security labels that both children (Kindergarten and First) and parents receive, background screening of all small group leaders, appropriate child to adult staffing ratios, and having leaders throughout the building. 

When do the students get to play in the gym

We open our doors at 9 AM to allow students around 30 minutes of free time in the gym. The gym is divided into two sections to allow for different activities for different age levels.
We also allow for students  to come play in the gym at the end  while waiting for parents to pick them up. 

What is JAMS

Just Among Moms (JAMS) is a monthly meeting that encourages, equips, and unites mothers of young children through friendship and personal renewal in their daily walk as a child of God, wife and mother. Childcare is provided for babies through 5th grade by reservation only.
Meets Second Thursday of the month September - May. To attend, please register.
