Cross Park Youth

Get Involved

Cross Park’s youth group has regular meetings for Sunday School, along with participating in yearly retreats, service projects, and other fun events.  The group is a fantastic way for teenagers to connect with friends, to study the Bible and serve the church and community together.  We believe that our youth are an important part of our church family, and we strive to help them learn while also providing them with opportunities to be involved with the entire church body.  Below you’ll find information about our latest youth Sunday School class, along with information about upcoming projects and events.

Summer Events

Saturday, June 22 Pool Party at the Newcotts (4-7 PM)

Tuesday, July 22 Carowinds
We are planning a day at Carowinds on July 16. More details will be forthcoming.
July 30-August 2 Youth Summer Service Trip
The Youth Trip to Bridgemont, TN is officially happening and we are very excited for this opportunity to grow in faith and service alongside one another. There is still opportunity for your youth to join in. Please email Ethan Brown if you or your youth are interested in joining us on this trip!
Youth Group Lite each Sunday morning from 10:00-10:30 in the cafeteria
While we will not be having youth Sunday school until the Fall, all the youth are invited to Youth Group Lite each Sunday morning from 10:00-10:30 in the cafeteria. It’s even more casual than it sounds! We will eat bagels, get to know one another better, and spend just a few minutes reading and discussing a passage of Scripture.


Fall Events

Here is our early Fall 2019 Youth Calendar. Save these dates, as we look forward to another great year of Youth Ministry!

Further Info

Sunday School: in keeping with the church-wide schedule, we will take a break from Sunday School until February 3.

Sunday Night Youth Group: this has been a really good time for strengthening relationships and for praying for one another in discipleship groups. We would like to add a few options for parents this coming semester, such as an occasional time for prayer while the students meet.

Monthly Events: the specific activities will vary, but we will continue to average one event per month.
