Student LifeGroups

Get Connected. Go Deeper.

Student LifeGroups provide opportunities for Middle School and High School students to have fun, make great friends, and grow in their relationships with God. These LifeGroups are led by adult leaders committed to biblically teaching the person of Jesus. 
Our Middle School LifeGroups meet on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM in The Venue which are divided by age and gender.
Our High School LifeGroups meet on Sunday evenings in The Venue following High School Worship.

Are you on a High School Serve Team?

One of the greatest gifts Christ has given to us is His Church and one of the most important things Christ taught us during His time on this earth was the act of serving. We want to take a moment to remind you about ways your student can serve the church here at Crossgates.

Meet the team.
