Launching THIS FALL (2023)
our new CR YOUTH group
for 6th-12th Graders!!
We are combining our Middle and High School students and providing a place for them to come to a safe and nurturing environment where they can be the unique and loved people God created them to be, as well as a place to be encouraged and to grow in their faith.
We will have three big events each year including a FALL CAMP, WINTER RETREAT, and SUMMER ROAD TRIP. In between those events will be special outings to build friendships, regular YOUTH GROUP NIGHT with games/food/messages, and regular SMALL GROUP NIGHTS with opportunities for middle school boys, middle school girls, and high school students to have a special space for just their peers.
All of these will be guided by our new CR YOUTH leaders. Meet them below!

Our CR YOUTH Leaders:
CR YOUTH Ministry
CR YOUTH helps our young people find meaning in their own stories. Through their experiences here, middle school & high schoolers will become more self-aware while developing compassion for others as they learn about, understand more clearly, and truly experience the love and compassion of Jesus. We believe these young people will use this awareness and understanding to create a culture of love, truth, and justice in our community. We are equipping our youth with the skills they need to be mobilized as change makers, active in social justice, serve with compassion, and be encouraged to live an authentic faith as they enter adulthood.
