If any special arrangements need to be made, please notify your child’s teacher ahead of time.
 
If you arrive earlier and/or you arrive before a teacher or shepherd has arrived, please do not leave your kids unattended.
Frequently Asked Questions:
 
What will my kids do during Sunday School?
While every class is a little different, everyone will have some time with music, games/activites, and Bible study. 
 
What age do kids start going to Sunday School?
We offer classes beginning with 3 year olds. We also provide a supervised nursery during our Sunday School hour for children 3 and younger, if you feel your 3 year old is not quite ready for classes.
 
Is there a fee for my child to participate?
No! We want anyone and everyone to have the same opportunity. You’re always welcome to make donations, but we don’t ask for any monetary support in order for your children to join us for Sunday School!
 
Is there a dress code?
We don’t require or expect your ‘Sunday best’ by any means. We do ask that we keep things ‘appropriate’, but do not offer any specific guidelines. Please use your own discretion.
 
Who will be teaching my kids?
We have an awesome group of volunteers made up of adults and high schoolers from the church!
 
What time do they have to be there?
Sunday School starts at 9:45, but often kids start showing up around 9:35. If you arrive earlier and/or you arrive before a teacher or shepherd has arrived, please do not leave your kids unattended.
 
Do I stay with them or drop them off?
We ask that you stay with your children until a volunteer is in their room. If you arrive earlier and/or you arrive before a teacher or shepherd has arrived, please do not leave your kids unattended. Sometimes our 3 year olds aren’t quite ready to be left without parents/guardians/grandparents… in those cases you can chat with the teacher and stay in the room with your kiddos.
 
Am I able to go to class with them?
While don’t have strict ‘no parents allowed’ rules, we do encourage parents to allow their kids this time to learn and be with their classmates. One way to be with them is to volunteer to teach or shepherd their class!
 
How long does this go?
Sunday School is from 9:45-10:45 on Sunday mornings. We run from September-May typically, and the official start/end dates can be found on our calendar, here
 
Do we have to be members to bring them?
Nope! Anyone can come be a part of Sunday School! Visitors are welcome! If you’re more than visiting, you can sign your kids up for Sunday School on our main Children’s Ministry Page.
 
What do you do in the summer?
We do not currently have weekly events for children in the summer, but we do have a week long VBS program, typically in June. The official date can be found on our main Children’s Ministry Page.
 
How do I get involved?
We couldn’t do what we do without the amazing volunteers we have! If you’re interested in helping out, contact Reagan at children@3cross.org or click the ‘volunteer here’ link on our children’s page.
 
Does kids go to worship services?
Yes! Our Sunday School Hour is between our two Sunday morning services, and we encourage our kiddos to be a part of our worship services! Throughout the school year, our kids will help lead different parts of the services and will sing at the 11:00 service about once a month!
