Portraits of Grace: CEM Story (3 of 4)

“Portraits of Grace: CEM Story” follows the development of our Children’s Education Ministry at King’s Cross Church. As “kingdom minded, kingdom people,” we recognize God’s work in every aspect of our church. We invite you to witness God’s work in the children of our church.

“In the beginning, CEM was very small and honestly just a place for us to put the kids during service. But over time, especially with the outpouring from SSP, it became something the kids could call ‘home.’ You can see they don’t feel like this is just a place where they get dropped off, but that it’s a place they’re inviting their friends and siblings to. They’ve started building friendships and get so excited when they see each other. Our kids are developing a space where they can not only learn about God, but also where they can grow with and support each other―and it’s a glimpse of what it’s going to look like when they’re older. Remember that Friends episode where Rachel talks about ‘her people’? I feel like this is what it’s going to be like for them. They’re going to be each other’s people.” – Andrea
