15+ Life Group
A 15+ Life Group will start on September 6 and will meet every other Thursday evening from 19:00 - 21:30ish at the Ministry Center. The goal of this group is to provide a place to dig deeper into God's Word while also providing a place to be open and accountable to other Christians as we all grow in our relationship with God. Food of some sort will be provided, so be prepared to to grow spiritually, while having a light snack. For more information, please contact Tory at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every year at the beginning of the school year, both the Youth and Children's ministry have a weekend of growing together and starting the year off with some teaching, games and good food. The Youth, both 12+ and 15+, went to De Aalbertshoeve in Ermelo the last weekend of September for the annual youth retreat and had a blast.
LIFEGROUPS AND FUN FOR AGES 18-25
An 18+ ministry has begun here at Crossroads for anyone between the ages of 18 and 25 who would like to build a Christ-centered community including a lot of fun, food and fellowship. We currently have LIFEgroups you can join and we are planning events you are welcome to be a part of. Check us out! We would love to meet you!

The 15+ group spent the first month of the New Year discussing spiritual gifts and how we can use them. We also talked about how the church functions as a body. Each person/part doing what it was made to do so other parts would not have to compensate. So why are we telling you this?
Daniel de Wet has accepted a teaching position at a church in South Africa, and plans to leave around the end of August. We are sad to see him go, but rejoice with him as he is following his calling to teach and preach. Daniel and Elmien, with their children, will be moving back to a place in South Africa called Knysna. Sunday August 28 we will have a BBQ at church and you will have a chance to say goodbye to him.
For the 15+ youth group we have recruited Tory Almond on staff.
In September we will start a new group! Young teenagers, ages 10 – 12, often feel too old for the Children's Church and they are too young for the youth group. What are we to do?? We are starting a new active program called Rock Steady, offering a mix of crazy games and deep conversations.
On the 18th of December we had our annual Christmas at the farm at the 'Clara Maria' farm. The volunteers of Crossroads and King's Kids worked together to make this event happen.
Last weekend, September 10-12, 34 dads and 46 children took part together in the yearly "dad kid camp." A team of 12 volunteers served the dads and children, and once again organized an amazingly fun event.
