YOUTH MINISTRY

PHA SKINNER, YOUTH MINISTRY LEADER

Shine On Youth (grades 6-12) meet Sundays, 10:00-11:15am. Students worship with their families and are dismissed part-way through the worship service to Shine On Youth. The junior and senior high students are encouraged through the “Grow” curriculum to be true followers of Jesus Christ.  The group is aimed at helping students experience their faith in three areas: Wonder, Discovery, and Passion. Students at Crossroads also gather regularly on Thursday evenings for youth group, and throughout the year for fun events, trips, service projects including a Yard Sale and Free Community Car Wash, retreats at Camp Berea in NH, and more. 



Thank you for visiting the Crossroads website. At this time we remain closed while working on plans to re-open. We will live-stream the Sunday service from the sanctuary, which you may view on Facebook at 10:00am each Sunday.  We look forward to your visit in person when we may safely assemble. Watch this space for schedule updates. You may leave a message for staff members at 508.877.7733.

YOUTH MINISTRY

CORE VALUES

At Crossroads we strive to serve families and students in three ways:

  • By equipping parents to fulfill their calling to be the primary spiritual leaders of their kids

  • By becoming a community that embraces and includes young people in our fellowship, worship and mission

  • By creating safe, fun environments where kids can experience the love of God in Christ, and discover what it means to follow Jesus

Crossroads and Faith Community Church/Framingham have teamed up to offer a great evening of food, faith and fellowship for area youth. This is a time of important peer fellowship for middle and high school students who are seeking to understand the faith, walk with God and share their faith in serving. The Gathering meets on Thurday evenings 6:00pm-8:30pm at the CE Center on the Crossroads campus (building address 1301 Edgell Road, Framingham). The evening is led by adults leaders from both church congregations.
