Encounter (grades 9-12) meets on Sundays @ 6:30 PM
The old saying "children are our future", is definitely true. At Crosspointe, we believe that God desires to build strong relationships with our students through the teachings of His son Jesus.
WHAT We Teach
We discuss topics relevant to their lives such as what's right and wrong, their self-worth, what is their purpose, how being popular isn't the most important thing in the world, forgiving others and themselves, telling the truth, the teachings of Jesus, and the stories of other Biblical heroes. We always use scripture as we teach, plus, we always have fun, playing some crazy game that relates to the lesson. And sometimes, we just play a crazy game, just for the sake of having fun. It's so important that kids in grades 7-12 develop relationships with other Christian kids and discover the truth revealed in the Bible. They also need to learn that being a Christian is FUN! You don't need to drink and do drugs to have fun, because being a Christian is the best and the happiest way to live!
WHY We Teach
Today's teenagers are tomorrow's adults. Right now, they are developing habits that will last a lifetime. Right now, they are choosing to do what's right or what's wrong. So, right now, we want to help them choose what's right. Because if they do, they will avoid the pitfalls we made as teenagers, the pitfalls that caused us so much pain. We want them to have happy, successful lives here on this earth, with as few problems as possible, and an even happier life forever in heaven. Isn't that what every loving parent wants for their children?
