Hi parents! Kid’s Crossing 2019-2020 is going to bring about a few changes! For starters, we’ll have a new look and feel to all the curriculum elements. The Bridge will also continue to shift as we seek to better resource you to continue curriculum conversations at home. We WILL continue to meet at 6:15pm, and I expect that our nightly schedule and structure will stay the same as well.
However, our ministry calendar is going to shift a bit. The start of next year might seem far away, but this change affects our regular schedule pattern and may affect your planning as a family for the fall. Despite the improving weather, we don't want to "spring" these changes on you! (ok, that was a terrible pun. you'll need to excuse me)
Next year, our schedule will have regular Kid's Crossing @ Home weeks, corresponding roughly to the start of each four-week unit. During these off-weeks, we'll be providing a unique "at home" video curriculum for your family to use - it'll last about 35 minutes - similar to what we provided during the last snow day. Our vision has always been to "create Christ-centered conversations in homes," and we feel this regular rhythm will help better accomplish that vision while also providing more space for your family and margin in your schedule.
Quite simply, what this means is that about once a month during the entire school year, we won’t have regular Kid’s Crossing programming. Those specific dates will be well communicated, along with an entire calendar, starting in the early fall. Our launch date for Kid’s Crossing next year is Tuesday, September 24, 2019.
There are a number of reasons for this change, and we'll communicate more as we get closer to our launch next fall. We look forward to the next ministry year, and can’t wait to see what God continues to do!
