Something I am trying to get better at: Cooking

My favorite vacation: Going to Mont-Tremblant in Quebec

Favorite Bible verse: 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”

Passages for Students and Families

Crossover

Moving from Elementary School to Middle School is an important transition time for students, families, and their communities. This is a time for families to recognize their child’s growing independence and offer a blessing of support and encouragement. We celebrate how each child has been formed and continues to be shaped by their own innate gifts and unique story. Here at Crossroads, it is also a time of moving up from Children’s Ministries as a child to Student Ministries as an adolescent.

Confirmation

Confirmation is a passage that guides high school students to personally own their faith and live in the way of Jesus in their everyday lives. It provides resources to deepen their love for God, others, and self through questions, service, and the ongoing support found in the family and in a Christian community. This passage is a part of the student’s sacred journey and invites the young adult to participate fully, question intentionally, and mindfully reflect on the decision to be confirmed or not, with the full support and love of their family and Crossroads family
