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. Our motto is “love God, love people, and be yourself.” Our leaders and staff want to help every student experience how to actively do those three things before they graduate. How do we do that?

Let's Get Together

Check Out Our Upcoming Students Events


Students who are getting started in their faith or who aren’t quite ready to take that next step of serving within the church are invited to join us for Foundations. This class is geared specifically towards 6th through 12th graders and will cover the basics of faith – the why’s and how’s of prayer, generosity, worship, service to others, and more. This is a year-long, recurrent curriculum but students are welcome to jump in at any time. Foundations also gives students the freedom to choose when they are ready to step out and start serving at Cross Timbers. CTS Leaders and Staff are always excited to help students find a place to use their gifts and talents for the benefit of God’s Kingdom!

Foundations meets on Sunday mornings during the following service times:
Argyle: 9:15am, 11:00am services – Portable Offices (check in at main offices)

Denton: 11:30am service – The Living Room (located in Kid’s Building, next to Kids Check In

Lake Cities: 10:00am service – Check in main lobby at CTS booth

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 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.

First Wednesdays

On the first Wednesday of the month, we go all out and throw open the Church doors for a night of fun, worship, and relevant teaching by one of our Student Pastors! These nights are designed to be an easy entry point to CTS so all middle and high school students are invited and encouraged to bring friends. Whether you are new to Cross Timbers, new to Church in general, or you’ve been a part of Cross Timbers for a long time, we want you to join us for our next First Wednesday! It’s going to be a blast and you don’t want to miss it! BE THERE!!!

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.


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.
