YOUTH

Youth Ministries at Crestwood

At Crestwood, we value youth, and we want to walk beside them through these formative years as they grow in their faith. The teenage years are a wonderful time of learning, growing, and discovering who you are. But there are often more questions than answers when it comes to life and faith.

“ Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity,”
I Timothy 4:12 ESV

The core of our youth ministry is our emphasis relationships: A relationship with God, relationships with other students and relationships with trusted adult mentors. Our small groups are key to forming these relationships by providing a safe place for youth to be in fellowship and consider questions about faith and life together. Our Crestwood 56ers (5th–6th-grade students) and Crestwood Youth (7th–12th grades) groups provide nurture and support as they mature.

Retreats & Special Events

Throughout the year, we offer opportunities to connect outside of church and often with youth of other churches. We attend various retreats during the school year, as well as summer camp. Our youth always come back enthusiastic and energized in their faith!
