Welcome to the student ministry at Crosscreek, a ministry to 6th-12th grade students! At Crosscreek, every student is welcome, valued, and celebrated. We are committed to helping students know themselves as intentionally created and passionately loved by God, guiding students into a deeper relationship with God through Jesus, and helping students discover the ways God gifts and calls them. Students are involved in the life of the congregation through Sunday School, worship participation and leadership, Wednesday night activities, and special events.

Students dig deep into the sermon Scripture for the day. Questions, ideas, doubts, and epiphanies—all are welcome here, as we help each other better understand and apply Scripture to our lives.
Worship at Crosscreek engages people of all ages. Students who are interested have many opportunities to help lead worship, including reading Scripture, providing special music, and serving on the Tech Team, which live-streams our services each week.
6th-12th grade students gather for fun, fellowship, and spiritual growth. From studying the Bible to asking difficult questions to discussing relevant topics, students practice applying their faith to their lives. Does not meet in the summer.

Preschool through high school students are invited to wear their backpacks to church. During the service, we will invite students forward to receive a special blessing as they begin a new school year. Each student will receive a specially designed backpack tag to remind them all year long that Crosscreek loves them and is praying for them!
Families in the church and community are invited to an evening of costumes and candy on Halloween night! No tricks (or anything scary), just treats and lots of fun!
The purpose of the Fall Mini Retreat is to take a break from our usual routine in order to spend restorative time with God and each other through nature and play. Hopefully, participants will be able to unwind, relax, connect, and have fun!
