May our sons (and daughters) in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars, cut for the building of a palace. – Psalm 144:12

But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” – Matthew 19:14

The Youth and Family Ministry at Holy Cross strives to provide families, youth, young adults and adults with opportunities for worship, Bible study, fellowship, and education within a caring Christian community centered on God’s Word, Baptism and Holy Communion. With the understanding that faith formation takes place—first—within the family, we support families toward growing in their faith, relating their faith to their everyday lives and spreading the message of Christ’s gospel to the world.

Groups belonging to Youth and Family Ministry include:
Luther’s Rookies (This group has a common bond between Christian Education and Youth and Family. It focuses on education for youth preparing to affirm their baptism)
The Holy Troublemakers (All youth 5th-12th grades are welcome here! Please visit our separate page for more information.)
The Theater Group
