CRYouth is a community of students who are seeking and seeking to apprentice under Jesus together. No matter where we are in our faith journey this a place to ask questions, a place to belong, a place to encourage one another, and a place to enjoy the way and the abundant life that Jesus offers.
1 Timothy 4:12
Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers and example in speech, in conduct, in faith, in purity.
It all starts with Jesus and his amazing grace:
While we're called to live out the mission of Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20), we can't actually do that without first recognizing our own lostness and need for Him.
We're given grace and strength not just for eternal salvation but for life now:
Salvation is an amazing gift and calling (2 Timothy 1:1-10) that God, in His mercy, has chosen to share with us, and none of us has ever done a thing to deserve it. Because of that incredible truth, we aim to live our lives the way Jesus did in and by His strength, abiding in His words and by his example, empowered by His Spirit.
We aim to imitate what Jesus practiced and taught:
Sometimes we forget that we need to move forward from the fact that Jesus is "the truth," and also keep in mind that He is "the way" and "the life.' (John 14:6) Our aim is to humbly live out what Jesus taught, as the greatest teacher of all time, and also how he lived as the perfect human.
We share what we've received:
Jesus called us to "go" and to "do," (Matthew 28:19-20) so our aim is to publicly acknowledge that Christ is with us in our schools, our homes, on social media, on our couches, and in all of our lives. And as we acknowledge and share that truth with a world that's lost, we trust that God will reach those He calls. Then we walk alongside those who He has called, striving together to better know, share, and live out the love of Jesus.

Starting on September 16th CRYouth returns for another season of growing deeper in the grace and ways of Jesus. There's lots to look forward to, from Wednesday meetings of our Junior and Senior groups (now separated!) to events and special gatherings!
As we return our aim is to comply with government guidelines of health and safety while continuing to be disciples of Jesus who go and make disciples of Jesus.
All through the fall months, CRYouth is going to be taking a closer look at what it means to, and how to go about following Jesus in our world today.
John 10:10 tells us that Jesus came that we may have "life abundantly," but Jesus didn't just tell us that it was possible, He showed us how by how He lived His life and by what He taught. We call this "The Jesus Way," and because we call him Lord and because we know he not only did life the best way, but also gives us the help to do the same, we want to train ourselves to live that Jesus way. From September to December we're going to learn and practice "The Jesus Way."
Instagram is one of the most useful tools we use to communicate with youth and parents, so if you don't follow us yet just click on the link below to get started. We post regularly about upcoming events, our teaching series, and what's generally happening in and around CRYouth.
Let's be honest, Facebook isn't for the kids anymore, so parent's, this is another great place to come to keep up to date with what's happening at and with CRYouth.
