Kids Sunday Serve

Event Details


Crossings Kids are encouraged to wear their pajamas to church on Sunday, December 19 for our Sunday Serve! During both the 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services, kids will work with their Sunday School class to assemble overnight bags for City Cares, an emergency night shelter.

Crossings Kids will also collect donations of pajamas for the City Cares Night Shelter. If you want to donate, please send your child to church with an extra pair of pajamas!

We look forward to serving with your kids!

ONGOING SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES
  • Guest Check In/Check Out: Help guests check their belongings in and back out each night and each following morning. The goal here is connection.
  • Pet Hotel Coordinators: Furry friends need attention, too. Pet hotel coordinators will check pets in, oversee the bathing station for guests to groom their animals, restock food, fill water, and check pets back out to their correct owners in the morning.
