The fee is $10 for the first child, $5 for each additional child. Pay online (provide child's name in the add special instructions tab) or pay the first day of VBS. For scholarships or questions, please email Tama Brenneke at tbrenneke@holycrossfw.org.

Children's Ministry

We approach children's ministry through the lens of family ministry, strategically getting parents involved along the way. In our KIDWISE children’s ministry we actively involve and equip parents to be the primary faith guides in their children’s lives – supporting, encouraging and connecting them with their extended church family.  Kidwise is during the Saturday evening service at 5:00 pm and the Sunday morning 10:30 am service during the school year. If you would like to volunteer with your student's small group, please contact Tama Brenneke,  our Children's Ministry Coordinator, at 348-2949 or tbrenneke@holycrossfw.org. 

The children are dismissed after the children's message for Kidwise and go to the school library for a large group lesson and then they split into small groups. Please pick up your child(ren) after the service in the school library.  You do not need to register your child for Kidwise.  

"And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man." Luke 2:52. This Bible verse is the basis for Holy Cross's weekly faith curriculum is called 252 Basics. This curriculum for schools and churches to foster character education development in kids as they grow in:

  • Wisdom - I need to make the wise choice.
  • Faith - I can trust God no matter what.
  • Friendship - I should treat others the way I want to be treated.

Each month we focus on the practical life application of God's Word in kids' everyday lives. During the month of March we will be discussing Peace - Proving you care more about each other than winning an argument. Our memory verse is “So let us do all we can do to live in peace. And let us work hard to build up one another.” (Romans 14:19, NIrV)

Parents are encouraged to continue discussion with their student throughout the day or for additional resources click on the following blog or podcast.
