YTH Middle

YTH Middle is the Middle School ministry at Crossroads. At YTH – we are ONE. We know that middle school can be filled with some of the most fun memories, but it also can be challenging at times. YTH Middle is here to help you discover who your real friends are, figure out where you fit in, who you are as a person, and who God has created you to be.

At Crossroads YTH Middle we believe that Every Empty Seat Matters.

Join us Sundays at 9:00 AM in the Student Loft at our Newburgh Campus.

If you attend our West Campus, YTH services are held every Sunday evening at 6:00 PM in our West Campus Worship Center.

We also believe that Groups Are Where You Grow.

Groups are a way to break away from the larger group of our weekly service, into a smaller setting.  Our desire is for these Groups to form stronger relationships that provide accountability, and allow for mentorship and deeper Bible study.  For more information on YTH Middle small groups, check out the story below.

Our third belief at YTH Middle is that Saved People Serve People.

There are many opportunities to serve within Middle School services on the weekends.  Serving is a great way for students to get connected in the life of the church and develop leadership skills for the future.

    High School and Middle School
    Sundays at 6:00 PM


    Sundays, 6:00 PM, West Campus.
    For most of us, middle and high school were some of the most challenging years we faced. Discovering who your real friends were, figuring out where you fit in, and who you were as a person were daunting tasks. We’re here to walk alongside your family through these formative years, as we help students understand who they are, and most importantly who they are in Christ.  Join us for a time designed just for you!
