At Cross & Crown we don't only believe that youth are the future of the Church, we believe they are the Church now! Read below about our different age-appropriate groups that help children and youth of all ages explore their faith and come to know Jesus.


Parents of babies and toddlers, Cross and Crown offers a faith-based curriculum for families with children under the age of 3 called Splash. The Splash newsletter is mailed directly to you with ideas to nurture faith development in young children. If you would like to receive the newsletter, contact Lisa Stocks: lisastocks@cclutheran.com317-417-8473.

Our Sunday morning Christian education program is for children ages 3 – 4th grade. We follow a lectionary-based curriculum, where the bible story taught in class each Sunday matches what the children will learn more about during the worship service. Children are split into age-appropriate groups and parents and other members volunteer to help lead the activity each week. 

All volunteers with children receive training from church staff and complete a background check prior to working with children. Sunday school is held most weeks from Labor Day through Memorial Day with breaks during holidays and school vacations. Please check the church calendar for an updated schedule. For more information or to volunteer with this ministry please contact Lisa Stocks: lisastocks@cclutheran.com317-417-8473
