56ers is for your kids in Grades 5 & 6. Each Sunday we work on making our faith our own through small group discussion, worship, prayer, and games! We emphasize relationship with our leaders and relationship with our peers before moving to Echo in Grade 7. Come check out what God’s Word has to say about your questions!
56er’s ministry exists to partner with families in pointing children to say yes to Jesus and to grow in living into the Big God Story. We believe children are not just the church of the future, they are the church today—our most precious resource! We are committed to foster an environment where they are safe, known and cared for, and can grow along with us in faith.

56ers @ Home: Everyday Resources
Online access to helpful take-home resources, our worship playlist, memory verses, reading challenges, and more.
Family Bible Reading Plan
Reading the Bible helps us to know God. It’s hard to follow God if we don’t know him. In the Bible, we learn to understand God’s character. We learn how he has acted in the past, and we are invited to be a part of His story and the work He is doing in our world today.
We want to encourage you to read together as a family! We have provided a few resources to get you started.
Since we believe children are the church today, Serve Sundays are a time when 56ers can offer their worship and service to our whole church body. There are various opportunities such as Hospitality team, serving in Early Childhood and many other roles.
The next Serve Sunday will be announced soon, where our 56ers will be equipped to serve in various roles in the church! Visit us again to register for Serve Sunday.
Throughout the year, CrossRoads Kids' hosts events as an opportunity for you to get connected as families of 56ers and with our Leaders. Stay tuned for the next 56er family event!
Our Grade 6's
Are you in grade 6 going into grade 7 in September 2020? You'll be headed to Jr. High Sunday and Youth. In the Spring of 2020, be sure to check out what is coming up for you!
CrossRoads’ vision “to give everyone in Central Alberta an opportunity to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and by following Him, compassionately impact our world” is what serving in children’s ministry is all about! Through serving, you have the opportunity to be a part of a team that can lead a child to a place where they understand Truth in the Big God Story to impact their world. Proverbs 22:6 says “...train up a child in the way s/he should go and when she/he is old she/he will not depart from it.” But, if we come week after week simply to check off that we are serving, we miss out on God’s intended ways for us to grow.
In saying yes to serving in children’s ministry, you are:
- Actively reaching Central Alberta with the gospel.
- Partnering with families by teaching and reinforcing the essentials of our faith to our children.
- Saying yes to the opportunity to let children preach the gospel to you in a fresh way by observing childlike faith, every time you serve.
