Transforming THE movie theatre
Every Sunday we work extra hard to make sure the CrossIron Mills Cineplex is a safe, clean and fun environment for your children. How do we do that? It starts with workers that have undergone a thorough criminal background check, and who have been trained to lead a safe and effective kids ministry. Additionally, our children's spaces are access-controlled; only approved workers can enter our children's area. You will drop off and pick up your child from the check in station in the theatre hallway each Sunday.
Inside of the theatres, we make use of the floor space between the front seats and the big screen. But don't worry about sticky floors or kids running wild up and down the aisles: We put down portable flooring and plastic play panels to create a temporary room for your kids.
And trust us, your kids will LOVE going to church in a movie theatre (actually, we really like it too)! A typical CONNECT KIDS service involves lots of laughing, singing, games and learning. Our curriculum is designed to teach three basic truths at each stage of childhood development:
BIRTH - 36 MONTHS We divide this age into two sections - crawlers and the not-yet-crawlers. Even at this young age, we are looking for fun ways to introduce God's love and care to your kids.
3 - 5 YEARS OLD We want every preschooler to know these three things by the time they enter elementary school:
- GOD MADE ME
- GOD LOVES ME
- JESUS WANTS TO BE MY FOREVER FRIEND
Every lesson, song, game, skit and interaction is designed to reinforce one of these three truths.
6 - 10 YEARS OLD Just as with our preschoolers, we have three basic truths we want every child to know by the time they graduate elementary school:
- I NEED TO MAKE THE WISE CHOICE
- I SHOULD TREAT OTHERS THE WAY I WANT TO BE TREATED
- I CAN TRUST GOD NO MATTER WHAT
Can you imagine the impact these 6 truths would have on a child as they transition from their childhood to their teenage years? We believe an entire generation could be transformed!
