Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me” (Matthew 19:14), and CrossPoinTempe Church welcomes all children to their classes and activities!
Children from birth to kindergarten are welcome to our cheerful, safe preschool classes, where they learn about God and His amazing creation. Babies are affirmed that God loves them, toddlers are taught about basic concepts of Jesus’ teachings, and three-years-old through kindergarten children are taught about Bible stories, Jesus’ life and his teachings. Through stories, crafts, interactive play, and music, our staff strives to make the children’s experience fun and meaningful, especially to teach each child that God loves them.
Children from 1st and 6th grade are included in the Children’s department classes and activities. They still enjoy stories, crafts, activities, and music, but biblical teachings go into more depth about the meaning and relevance of the lessons for children’s lives. Students learn in a safe, friendly environment from staff who strive to meet them where they are in their spiritual journey and biblical understanding.

AWANA is available to children 3-years old through 6th grade, and it focuses on the national program based on a verse from 2 Timothy 2:15: Approved workmen are not ashamed. Children in this program learn about God’s word, memorize Bible verses, and play games and activities related to biblical principles. They especially learn to know, love, and serve Christ!
