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.
Youth After Noon, Sundays 12:30-2:30 pm
A great way to wrap up the weekend and refocus for the week to come, youth meet every Sunday afternoon. 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.
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.
