Family Life Ministries: CRC Student Ministries
CRC Student Ministries is the combination of 4th-5th graders aka Club 45, 6th-8th graders aka The Tweens, and 9th-12th graders aka The Teens. Our focus is to provide a welcoming and engaging environment for young people to encounter Jesus! Every Wednesday evening from 5:30pm-8:00pm is an impactful and invitational experience for self and spiritual exploration. It includes a meal, worship and devotion, small group study and a supervised free time called "The After Party" from 8:00pm-8:30pm, which includes games, music and all things fun! This is an amazing way to discover their identity in Jesus Christ, build healthy relationships and do life together.
