Life Groups

Sundays @ 9:445 a.m.

Preschoolers and children experience small-group Bible study with consistent teachers and kids their own age. We use LifeWay's Gospel Project curriculum.

Preschool/ Children's Security System

Porter takes security of our kids very serious.  We use an automated security check-in system through REALM for our preschool and elementary ministries on Sundays. Preshoolers and elementary students are signed in by name to our system that produces a numbered security sticker that matches the sticker we put on your child.  Parents must have their numbered security sticker to pick up their child.  We have security policies and background check all of our volunteers.

VBS & Crossings Camp

Each summer, we will have a week-long Vacation Bible School. Kids 4 yrs. old through 5th grade are invited to learn about God in a fun, interactive environment.  From 9 a.m. – noon each day, teachers engage kids in Bible study, games, Bible truths and worship.  The week culminates with a musical presentation and carnival for the whole family on Friday evening.  

Crossings Kids Camp is an overnight camp for 3rd–5th graders to experience the time of their lives and learn more about the message of Jesus Christ!
