NextGen Wednesday Programming Begins

Crossview Kids Wednesday
Every Wednesday, Beginning Sept. 20 (6:00-7:00pm)
4 years old-5th Grade

Kids won’t want to miss Wednesday nights this year! This is a special time where we journey through stories in the Bible, experience God’s love, and create meaningful friendships with other students and leaders. We’re using the Orange’s 252 Basics and First Look curriculum this year - watch for tons of parent resources coming your way!

 

Crossview Students:
Every Wednesday, Beginning Sept. 20 (6:00-8:00pm)
6th-12th Grade.

Our weekly gathering will feature a large group time followed by small group breakout sessions (Middle School and High School will be separate). There will also be an extended time of fellowship to play table games, high energy games, have refreshments, do homework, or to just chill and be with friends in our brand new youth space. You are going to want to be at Crossview every Wednesday starting this fall.  Bring your friends!

Third Grade Bible Meeting
Wednesday, Sept. 20 (7:00-8:00pm)

On Sunday, Oct. 8 we will present third graders with a new Bible. It’s a way to invest in the faith journey of our students and support their parents, who we believe are the BEST spiritual mentors of their children. Parents and third graders - if YOU would like to participate in the Third Grade Bible Presentation this year, you must attend this mandatory meeting. Contact Kari Rodman to register.

Starting Point - Next Step Class

3 Options:
Sundays, Sept. 24-Nov. 12 (10:30-11:30am) @ Crossview**
Tuesdays, Sept. 26-Nov. 14 (6:00-8:00pm) @ The Fillin’ Station, Mankato
Wednesdays, Sept. 27-Nov. 29 (6:00-7:00pm) @ Crossview

For some of us, our faith journeys began in childhood as a set of beliefs handed to us by a parent, teacher, or pastor. Maybe you developed a framework of faith based on personal experience. Maybe you had no faith at all. Too often, a faith formed in childhood isn’t strong enough to withstand the pressures of adult life. What if you could find a new starting point for faith as an adult? Whether you are curious about God, new to faith, or coming back to church after some time away, Starting Point is a place where your opinions and beliefs are valued, and no question is off limits.

This is an opportunity for all of us to invite a friend, a co-worker, a neighbor, or a family member to do life and faith with one another. To sign up, contact Aaron Thompson or go to www.crossviewcovenant.org/fallgroups. Group size is limited to 15 for Tuesday night. **If you choose the Sunday option and have children up to 5th grade, we will provide supervised activities until Crossview Kids Sunday programming begins.
