After we teach our children the important stories of our faith, we need to guide them as they apply these lessons in their own lives. Our Cross Trainers group for youth in Middle School and Senior High encourages them to receive and respond to all of their life experiences as disciples of Jesus.
The Cross Trainers youth group meets each Sunday at 6 p.m. Each meeting includes a lesson and a game. The group strives to complete one service project and one "fun" activity per month. They also participate in a week-long mission trip every summer, and hold fundraising opportunities throughout the year for this important trip. In addition, the Cross Trainers share a Thanksgiving dinner, tour local Jaycees haunted houses and have other special traditions. The youth are extremely involved in the church and many of them volunteer for Kids' Klub, Vacation Bible School, the nursery, and special events throughout the year.
