Youth Ministry

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.

The Vision of Cross Park Youth

The Mission of Cross Park Church is Him We Proclaim. And our Vision as a Youth Ministry is an expression of that Mission. The Vision of Cross Park Youth is to see Cross Park Youth, Families, and Friends worshiping Christ (Him), as they fellowship together (We), so that the gospel goes forth in their lives and the lives of others (Proclaim).


dGroups (short for Discipleship Groups) are designed to give students opportunity to grow in their knowledge of God’s Word, deepen their love for Jesus, and enrich their friendships with other believers. We hope that all of the students of Cross Park will be connected to a dGroup and also want these to be places where students feel encouraged to invite their friends – whether they are Christians or not!

We will be continuing our every-other-week rhythm for the Spring semester, with each dGroup meeting at a different time/place based on the needs of each group. If youth students or parents have any questions about meeting times, locations, etc., they can reach out to the appropriate dGroup leader.

If you want to be connected to a dGroup or need a dGroups leader’s contact information, contact Spencer.
