Youth Ministry at Crosstrail encompasses students from 6th through 12th grade. These are such pivotal years in which they are making important discoveries about themselves and God, as well as making decisions that will shape who they become. Our goal is to give students the tools and resources to dive deeper into their faith so that they can learn to make it their own and become passionate about following Jesus.
Our Youth Ministry is composed of three principle environments: Connect Group, Grow Group and Reach Events. Each of these environments, along with our Worship Services, is thoughtfully designed for a specific purpose in helping form well-rounded disciples of Jesus.
Connect Group happens on Sunday mornings at 9:30 at our location, where they are taught from Scripture about important, age-specific topics that will help ground them in God’s truth and experience his goodness. These lessons are taught in a discussion format to encourage the students to share questions, concerns, experiences, insights, and build a sense of community.
Grow Group(s) happen on a weekly basis at a home or park. Students are mentored in reading through books of the Bible, journaling their thoughts, sharing their struggles and praying for each other and their friends.
Reach Events bring the students together monthly for fun, engaging activities to build and strengthen their friendships within the group and to encourage them to invite friends from outside the group who may not know Jesus. From cookouts to game nights to Christian concerts, Reach Events are always a favorite!
Safety is one of our values. Our leaders must all pass a criminal background check, undergo an interview with the Director and/or the Pastor, and work within established safety policies.
