WHAT TO EXPECT

It's scary to come to a church for the first time! We would love to help you prepare for that experience by telling you what you can expect when you come to 3Crosses. 

  • Expect Your Family to be Safe!

Safety is one of our highest priorities. That's why you'll receive a unique parent identification number each time you check in. Additionally, every volunteer in 3Crosses Kids has completed a background check and live scan before serving. You may also notice that our hallways are monitored by security during each of the services.

  • Expect to Hear About Jesus

Our purpose at 3Crosses is Life Transformation Through Following Christ. Everything we do is designed to help you be transformed in your relationship with Jesus. 

  • Expect to Feel Welcome

From the moment you drive up the hill and into the parking lot, you can expect that there will be men and women who will help you and make sure you feel welcome. 

  • Expect for Your Kids to Have a Great Time!

We have an amazing, fun, safe environment for kids at 3Crosses. We often hear families say, "We wanted to just check out 3Crosses for one week, but our kids made us come back again!" Your kids might love our Children's Ministry so much that they start dragging you to church!

  • Expect to Be Invited Into Community

3Crosses is a big church and at first you may think, "How will I ever meet anyone here?" We know our church is big and so we've developed a ton of smaller communities that will help you get to know people quickly -- from Community Groups to our larger monthly gathering just for Families of younger kids, we will help you find an option that will fit you.

The Buddy System is a program for children through the 5th grade with special needs. On Sunday mornings we will pair your child with a buddy! The buddy will help encourage and support your child throughout the Sunday morning music, crafts, activities, teaching about Jesus, and more with other children their age.

Volunteer

In addition to our children's staff workers we have volunteers who are parents, grand parents, high schoolers, family and friends who join our team to support our Kids Ministry. There are so many opportunities to serve in 3Crosses Kids such as: kiosk workers, drama team, tech team, worship team, teaching team, class helpers and so much more. All volunteers go through a background check, Live Scan and training before being allowed to work with children. Come join our team!

 These meetings are a time to bring your friends and get ready for food, games, a message, and small groups. This is your time to have fun with your friends and grow in your relationship with the Lord. These are free events and we would love to have you join us!

➤ Coffee & Families

Don't be stressed about making it to service on time! Be sure to come early to give yourself plenty of time to meet the team, drop your kids off and grab a cup of coffee at our coffee shop, Cafe 4, before heading into the sanctuary for the service.

We also have a Families group that meets at 9:30am in the Chapel. Most of us have kids in either the nursery or in elementary. We're married, single, blended, just starting and seasoned - all are welcome! 

FAMILIES

➤ Kids Check-In Process

On your first visit, you will be greeted by a 3Crosses Kids leader eager to meet your family and show you what we do at 3Crosses Kids. Because safety is a priority at 3Crosses we will need basic information including: family member's name, child's name and birthday, address, and any special instructions or allergies. We will also need your cell phone number and service provider in the event that we need to contact you during the service. 

Once you are successfully checked in, you'll receive a key tag that is exclusive to your family. The next time you join us, you can use that key tag to check-in on your own or with a 3Crosses Kids volunteer at our Kiosk stations. Upon check-in, you'll receive matching identification stickers. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion and you will need to keep the matching tag. After the service, you'll show the 3Crosses Kids and 3Crosses Security team your matching tag as you walk in our doors to pick up your child from his/her room.

We know you love your family so much and we want you to be comfortable every step of the way. So feel free to ask questions, we are here for you!
