Each year, CrossRidge Church collects school supplies and uses a Dollar Day offering to buy additional school supplies and takes those items and take them to LEISD so they can distribute them as needed. This year, LEISD has sent us a specific list of items each child needs.All donations need to be dropped off at the church by July 28th. We have 3 different lists from the school
Kids will be moving up on August 13th! Moving up into their new class that is. Every year, right before school starts all children move into their new classrooms. For example, if you have a child who is starting 5th grade in the fall, he or she will go to the 5th grade Sunday class starting August 13th.
If you have any questions please ask one of our check-in specialists for more information.
New 7th graders get a chance to get a sneak peek into the student minsitry on August 9th.
We know entering into a new group can sometimes be awkward and scary so we offer a night out just for students entering 7th grade.. On August 9th, they get a night where they get to hang out with some of the adult student leaders as well as several of our student leaders. This gives them time to get to know each other before they move up into their new Sunday morning classes and the student Wednesday Night services.
Super Summer exists to inspire and equip students as Kingdom-minded leaders. Super Summer focuses on 5 core values; spiritual growth, Spiritual Disciplines, Leadership, Evangelism, Discipleship, and Service/Ministry.
Super Summer Oklahoma began in 1986 as a training opportunity for youth ministers to bring Christian young people who were interested in advancing their personal spiritual growth. Super Summer has over 3000 participants and promises to continue growth as the need for student leaders intensifies.
Super Summer Oklahoma is an independent camp operated by a board of directors made up of youth ministers, pastors, and laymen. Super Summer Oklahoma takes place at Oklahoma Baptist University the first three full weeks of June each year.
God continues to prompt Super Summer Oklahoma to provide a cutting edge vision and resource to churches and youth pastors that will effectively explode this generation of Christian teens into a world that desperately needs hope and salvation.
We're heading back to Glorieta, New Mexico, and the SBTC's M3 Student camp this summer. Last year, we had a blast in the mountains hearing God's Word, worshipping, competing in the mud pit, hicking, and whole lot more. This year will be even better and we are looking forward to all God has in store for us. If you have any questions about camp please contact Simon Collard at email@example.com or at 972-292-1953.
What is a D-Now Weekend?
“D-Now” stands for Disciple Now. So, a D-Now Weekend is a Disciple Now Weekend. In its simplest form, a Disciple Now Weekend is a weekend retreat for a youth group. Whereas some retreat weekends are more about getting away (which is NOT a bad thing), D-Now Weekends put a high premium on discipleship in and around our church. There are Large Group sessions where a speaker can move the weekend’s theme along from a big-picture perspective. And there are super-intentional Small Group times where students go deeper with their individual small group leaders. It’s a focused time of spiritual growth and application.
“Host Homes” are a key feature of D-Now Weekends. A host home is where a family in the church agrees to host a Small Group for the weekend. They’ll usually spend a Friday and Saturday night there and will eat a few meals with the host home family.
We are really looking forward to this great weekend. It will, without a doubt, be one of the most incredible weekends of their life. Here is the information you and your student need in order to participate in this weekend.
Schedule: Friday, February 17, we will be getting things started at 7:00pm in the Student Room at CrossRidge Church. The weekend will end after Sunday School on February 19 at 12:00pm. The students are required to be with us from start to finish. If they have a minor schedule conflict, fill out a Time Away Card and turn it in upon arrival.
Time Away Card: If your student already has something scheduled during the retreat times, complete the Time Away Card. It will need to be signed by the student, a parent, and me, and taken to the host family at the beginning of the weekend. Extra copies will be provided on Friday night if necessary. Please consider letting your student come, even if they have a minor conflict with the schedule. We will work with you so they can come as much of the time as possible.
Payment: The cost for the entire weekend is $60.00. This includes all meals, a T-shirt, materials, and any other activities we will do. All forms and money are due no later than Sunday February 11, but preferably earlier if at all possible!
D-Now Weekend is going to be one of the greatest weekends of your student’s life, so begin praying and preparing for it NOW! If you have any questions concerning any area of the weekend, please feel free to contact Simon at 972.292.1953 or firstname.lastname@example.org!Register Today
