High School (CREW)
Christ in Everything
EACH OTHER in the
Who: Any and all youth currently in grades 9-12. Our dedicated leaders include: Angy Snoop, Laura Walker, Bill O'Brien, Ray Cross, Trenton Garbers, Shayla O'Brien and DCE Emma Auger.
When: every Wednesday from 5:30-7pm
Where: HERE, at St. Paul's! We meet in our self-decorated CREW room located in the upstairs hallway of our church.
What: Food + friends + chillin' + games + Jesus. Once a month (usually the third or fourth Wednesday) we engage in a service event.
CREW is a time to form positive, lasting relationships with other high school youth. On Wednesday nights, we begin with chill conversation (and some crazy stories), move to activities and games, and close out with some Jesus and time with the Bible.
The theme for CREW this year is Christ in Everything, centering around Colossians 3:16-17: "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your eharts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
With this verse, we remind our high school youth every week that CREW is a place where they are safe. High school comes with struggles, fights, confusion and stress. We want CREW to be a place where this stress can be diffused and forgotten, and where we remember that Jesus is the center of our lives and the reason for living. Not only does our life make more sense when we put Christ before all else, but we we are given a constant reminder that we are loved, special and Created for a purpose. CREW is a place where lasting friendships are formed and nurtured by a God that sincerely cares about our lives.
