All middle and high school students (grades 6-12) are welcome to come out for CROSSFIRE on Sunday nights from 6:00-7:30 PM usually at the church building (but see the full schedule below).
Our leadership team is: Pastor Mike Quillen, Julia Quillen, Boris Bla, Bob Styer, and Peggy Styer
To help youth in 6th-12th grade build deeper relationships with God and each other so that they shine the light of Jesus Christ now and in the future.
Our Focus this School Year
We will meet weekly with monthly social gatherings and regular service opportunities. Our overarching focus is going to be UNDERSTANDING CONFLICT, RESPONDING TO CONFLICT, and becoming PEACEMAKERS FOR LIFE.
We will learn the principles and skills of biblical peacemaking using bible study, engaging videos, fun activities, and practical tools so that we can make a difference in our community -- breathing grace and peace into friendships, family, school, and life even in challenging situations.
We will usually meet from 6:00-7:30 PM at the church building. Social gatherings and service opportunities will meet at different times and places.
