Junior High Ministry (JHM)

7th and 8th Grade Ministry

JHM includes a mix of discipleship, ministry, worship, evangelism, and genuine fellowship in small groups. This is a fun ministry that also includes retreats, opportunities for concerts and to be able to partake in teen worship with the high school ministry once every other month.

Frequently Asked Questions

We meet Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:15 PM at the west lobby of our main facility.

Yes! We are always looking for parents to do do behind-the-scenes work and adult leaders to support our team.

At Cross, we do not confirm groups at the end of May. We believe that many are not ready. Therefore, we leave that decision up to the family. When your child is ready to be confirmed and celebrate their faith in Christ, they may set up an appointment with one of the pastors and begin heading in that direction. The end result is an individual confirmation.

For more information, please see our Confirmation page.

If your child is already confirmed, that is great! Being confirmed is not the end to learning. They are still in their prime years of learning at Cross Lutheran. Remember, we want information to be retained and taken to heart. We still want them to be a part of JHM and we hope they can share their insight and faith with other children.

If your child is unfamiliar with the Bible, we welcome them to join our ministry.  These are the prime years for absorbing God’s Word.  Our high school ministry also nurtures Christian growth.  As a staff, we will teach each youth to the best of our abilities.
