CT Students

Welcome to Cross Timbers Students (CTS)Grades 6TH-12TH

The middle and high school years can be a busy blur for students and that is why we try to keep things simple and fun at CTS. We want to help every student FOLLOW JESUS, FIND FREEDOM from the things that are holding them back, have SOMEONE TO KNOW through relationships that matter, and have SOMETHING TO DO by using their gifts, passions and story to make a difference in the places where God has put them.

Sunday Student Section & Serve Opportunities

Beginning October 13th, on Sunday mornings we will have a specified student section during both services in the main worship center to encourage our students to attend service together! In addition, we have many opportunities for students to serve on Sunday mornings in all areas. Research shows that 70% of students who are involved in student ministry have a really hard time connecting to a church once they graduate from high school. This is a staggering number that we want to see drop. To keep these students engaged after high school, we want to give them a way to feel connected to the rest of the church. So, we encourage our students to be a part of what Cross Timbers is doing as a whole.


Mid Week Circles

At Cross Timbers, we talk a lot about drawing circles and not lines. We want to draw circles around people and not a line between them because we believe that God created us to be in community with others. CTS Circles were born from this idea and are a weekly opportunity to gather in a small group setting to explore the Bible, discuss how we apply it’s truths in our day-to-day lives, connect with one another, and pray together. Circles are a welcoming and safe place to ask questions and share honestly, so these groups are comprised of students of the same grade and gender. Circle Leaders are caring adult Serve Team members who have been approved by the Student Ministry Staff and have completed a background check.

On these nights, we will have intentional worship and messages that our students will relate to. Following this service, we will move to Circles to give our students an opportunity to dig into what we talked about as well as make connections with students their age and get to know a leader who cares about them.

Gather

Once a month, we will have a big event for our students from 6:30pm-8:30pm called Gather. During this event, we will bring all of our campuses and Circle Plants together for an incredible night of worship and community. This is a great time for students to invite friends. We will offer a variety of fun events like color wars or a night of worship. Your student will not want to miss these incredible events!

STUDENT SERVE TEAM

As the next generation, Students are a vital part of Cross Timbers! Look around and you are bound to see students serving by operating cameras, rocking babies, greeting guests as they arrive, directing traffic in the parking lot, leading worship from the stage, teaching our CT Kids about Jesus, and so much more! Students play a huge role in making things happen on Sunday mornings and throughout the week. By giving their time and sharing their talents, students get to connect with the Church body and experience the unity that comes with being a part of something bigger than themselves. Having a Church culture of loving others through service sets students up to continue this practice after graduation and into adulthood. Use the button below to complete the Serve Team form.

ADULT SERVE TEAM

It takes more than 50 adult volunteers each week to make the student ministry at Cross Timbers successful! We are very lucky to have an amazing Serve Team that builds meaningful relationships with our students as they lead Circles or Foundations, attend CTS events like Summer Camp, cheer on students at their games and performances, provide office support during the work week, and in many other roles. If you are interested in serving with CTS, we have a place for you! To join this fun and dynamic team, please click on the Serve Team form below and we will be in touch.
