It became clear to Pastor Jeremy after 15 years of educational and ministerial experience that uniting families is crucial to the spiritual health of children and teenagers. Separating families into separate programs on separate nights with separate lessons produces spiritual separation within the family. We believe there is a more effective and practical way to unite families spiritually.
Our plan at CrossPoint is to teach the same scripture to the whole family at the same time. We’re accomplishing this plan by keeping our weekly sermons so simple, clear, and practical that we are able to teach the same story with the same applications to the children and teens as we preach to the adults. We know our plan has worked when the whole family is able to get in the car after service and have a unified discussion that leads to unity in the home. Parents can remind kids of the same lessons they learned in the main service, and children can do the same with their parents.
