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.
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.
Students are invited to meet with Haley at a predetermined cafe every Wednesday night for a mid-week refocus. A relaxed atmosphere with a few friends for good conversation is the perfect way for students to get over hump day.
As part of Wild Wednesdays, youth meet every Wednesday night during the school year for a mid-week refocus. A combination of games, snacks, and devotion as a youth group family is a great opportunity for students to get over hump day.
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.
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.
