Children's Ministry

Holy Cross provides a variety of programs for pre-school and elementary age children:

Vacation Bible School

Holy Cross Virtual VBS July 19-23, 2021

Youth of all ages are invited to share a virtual VBS experience with their families at home this summer. This summer VBS will be online and will offer almost everything a traditional VBS would have, but will be designed to work easily at home. We will have Bible stories, videos, related activities, music and much more. 

VBS will be a one-week program available online for one month beginning July 19. This year it will consist of two components: preschool and elementary/middle school. Preschoolers will be able to learn about Jesus through their own teachers, activities, and music. The elementary/middle school children and youth will learn about Jesus through their own teachers, activities, and music. Each program consists of five days with a different lesson each day. There is no registration fee involved.  The sites can be viewed at any time that works for the family. Families are encouraged to participate together.





Baptism is a wonderful God given gift of spiritual life for infants, children, and adults.  We are pleased to be a welcoming home and community to all of God's children, no matter what age. If you are interested in having a Baptism at Holy Cross, simply contact the church office to schedule a time for you to meet with Pastor Koschmann to discuss the significance of Baptism, what to expect during the ceremony and help you with any questions or concerns you may have about Baptism.

Kidz Night Out

Parents – want to enjoy a night out without the kids?  Bring them to our next Holy Cross for Kidz Night Out. They’ll have a variety of fun activities on site while you enjoy your own night out. Please note that our April 25th date has been canceled, but please check our website for upcoming dates.  

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Kidz of the Kingdom is not currently scheduled and will resume once restrictive orders are lifted and it is safe to do so.






Holy Cross Lutheran Children's Center

Holy Cross Lutheran Children's Center School Age Program provides a Christ-centered daycare program from 6:30 am - 6:00 pm before and after school for children in grades K-5.  Daycare is available on school in-service days. 

The program is designed to help children develop a healthy self-concept, which includes accepting themselves, their limitations and talents as God has given them.  The children experience God's love in action as the staff reinforces the belief of Jesus Christ as Lord, Savior and Friend.

The School Age Day Care Program is held on the grounds of Holy Cross Lutheran Church.  The program makes use of the Good News Building classrooms for indoor activities and the playground area for outdoor fun.  The area where the children play is sealed off by gates while the children are at the daycare.  You are always invited to come and see us!  Read more about the Holy Cross Lutheran Children's Center...
