Within Crosswinds’ mission is to meet every child, teen, and adult wherever they are in their spiritual journey; our Intermediate Ministry desires to meet every 5th through 8th-grade student exactly where they are and to encourage and equip them to take their next step in their relationship with God and others. We kick off on January 7th, 2024!

Sunday Mornings // During the 9:00am Service

Students (5th-8th Grade) will start each Sunday in the adult worship service, where they are engaged in praise and worship. Then students are released from that service and they head into their own service in The Box for the remainder of the hour. They get to hear an age-appropriate message, grow alongside their peers in connect groups, and deepen their relationship with God.

How Check-In Works


During Service: Once our students are dismissed from the adult worship service to The Box, our team will help check them in. Similar to how our Student Ministry functions on Wednesday nights, your children will be greeted by our check-in team, who will check them in and give them a nametag!

After Service: After the service is complete, your children are dismissed! You can meet them in The Box or have them meet you elsewhere on campus. Maybe in the coffee shop for some fellowship after service! We leave this entirely up to you and your comfort level with your children.
