New COVID Policy
On Sunday, April 11, we will no longer:
– conduct temperature checks on our K-5th graders or their teachers
– require parents to walk their children to class or pick them up if they are in grades 2-5
– ask that parents use assisted check-in for K-1st grade. They may use a computer themselves if they prefer. We encourage the use of hand sanitizer after.

On Sunday, April 11, we will still:
walk the kids by grade from K-1st/Kids Connection to their Small Group classes at the end of the 9:30 a.m.  service.
– require the wearing of face masks during both 9:30 a.m. Kids Connection and 11:00 a.m. Small Groups

Decision Day – Updated
THIS Sunday is decision day! Make time in your lesson to share the gospel with your children. We will have decision cards and tracks available in your classroom bag. The lesson this week is on the Road to Emmaus. It’s a great opportunity to show the children that all of Scripture points to the sacrifice Jesus would make and the salvation He would bring. Please let us know if there is any way we can aid you this Sunday!

Reminder: Change of Curriculum
Please remember that our curriculum has changed. This Sunday will ONLY include Unit 33, Session 1. Session 2 has been moved to Sunday, April 18 with all following weeks adjusting for this change.

Do you need supplies?
If you need to restock your classroom with paper towels, hand sanitizer or disposable wipes, please email Brother Barry at [email protected].



Do you have any praises and prayer requests you would like to share with us? Do you have any changes to the prayer requests that we have listed? Please let us know of your changes or requests in E.L.I.S. or fill out a Weekly Care Ministry Report.


Please lift up Brenda Baran’s father, praying he would mentally and emotionally accept all the changes in his life. Ask the Lord to reveal a new purpose for both Brenda’s parents. As always, please keep praying for healing as Brenda’s father as he fights cancer. The doctor’s are ready to begin the chemo treatment.

Please continue to pray for the Bowers’ family as they grieve the passing of Stephanie’s mom.

Please be in prayer the Mitchell family. Betty Mitchell (wife of Harold Mitchell and mother of Danny Mitchell) passed away this year. Betty was a regular CrossLife attender and part of Stephanie Ward’s Small Group. She will be dearly missed.


We had over 500 children attend EGGstravaganza with many families returning the next day for Easter. COVID and its many barriers did not stop families from hearing the gospel and celebrating with the Church!
