Youth

HC_icons_Ministries

Welcome!

We are committed to engaging the youth and teenagers of our community with opportunities to grow in their faith in God, relationships with all generations, and service to others.

Weekly Experiences

Sunday School, 9:30 – 10:30 am (6th – 12th Grade)

We have Bible classes every week for youth in the Youth Room located at the end of the church office hallway.  (From September to April, first- and second- year Confirmation Students meet separately.)

Confirmation / First Communion

Starting in 6th grade, students can take a one month class (offered in Spring) and take their First Communion on Maundy Thursday (the Thursday before Easter).

Confirmation is a two year process through which a student prepares to publicly declare and defend their faith. Students can begin this process as early as 6th grade. Confirmation Classes are during Sunday School.

Youth Night, Sundays 6 – 8 pm

A great way to wrap up the weekend and refocus for the week to come, youth meet every Sunday night . A combination of conversation, games, snacks, and devotion as a youth group family is a great opportunity for students to grow in faith together.

Summer Mission Trips

Every summer, one or more mission trips are made available.  This is great time for students to experience a new place and develop discipleship habits and servanthood away from the comforts of home.

Service Opportunities

Students are active in a variety serving roles, both at Holy Cross and in the community.  From helping with VBS/summer camps, fundraisers, and our other major outreach ministry events, the youth make major contributions on a regular basis.
