Middle School Youth Ministry

As members of the Cross in the Woods (CITW), Middle School Youth Ministry program will assist all students on a journey of faith that deepens their relationship with Jesus Christ. Faith, Fun, Learn and Service will be our mission to help our youth to encounter God, hang with friends, have fun and to become joyful and faithful missionary Disciples of Jesus Christ in service and love.

Our Middle School Youth Ministry program (6 through Grade 8) includes catechesis, prayer, youth conferences, special guest events and parish and community service involvement among others. Youth at this age are expected to live out their baptismal vows and Confirmation commitment. Parents are asked to be supportive and involved.

Meetings will be held on the 2nd and 3rd Sundays of the month starting on the 3rd Sunday in September through May, from 9:00-11:30 am (Including 10:30 am Mass), in the Longhouse room.

If you would like to sign up, get a registration packet and/or for more information, please contact the Faith Formation Office at (231) 238-8973 Ext. 312 or at mcruz@crossinthewoods.com. Registration forms need to be submitted by August 30 to the Parish Office or mail it to us at 7078 M-68, Indian River, MI 49749.
