General Schedule

Tuesday Youth Group: 6:45PM-8:45 PM – Meet at the Top of the Hill

Sunday – 9:00 AM CREW

JH Sunday CREW meets together to worship, fellowship and gain a better understanding of the Bible. We meet in Green 1 and use the Lifeway curriculum called the Gospel Project. Information on weekly study is updated on our CREW web page to allow our students to deepen their study time and engage with family devotion. Application of weekly study is geared toward the Junior High student who attend public, private or homeschool.

Sunday – 10:45 AM CREW Options

We encourage JH students to elect to serve in Children’s Education (CE) by assisting in Praise Place, being a JH classroom assistant leader, or by attending the main service in the sanctuary with family. All youth who are in 7th grade and older can volunteer to serve in Sunday School, VBS, or Praise Place Productions. These youth will learn leadership skills, provide Christian examples to younger children while serving the Lord. (This is called – Jr. Leadership Ministry and I have them fill out an application with a parent signature) Download Jr. Leadership Qualifications (pdf) Download Jr. Leadership Application (pdf)

What to expect?

The goal of worshiping together as a JH group allows for engagement in the Word and gaining a deeper understanding based on the developmental needs of the Junior High student. In addition, the relationships of trust between peers and leaders are strengthened in worship, community and mission by weekly attendance.

At West Hills Community Church, the Junior High program is referred to as Christ’s CREW or more commonly as CREW for short. The word crew is defined as a group of people who work closely together. Our WHCC JH work closely with one another in learning about Jesus Christ and in making disciples for Christ. Our goal is to teach students about who God is and the message of Jesus in the Bible. Our leaders understand that this happens through learning the Word of God and building real relationships with the people of God. Students can expect to gain a better understanding of scripture and relate learning to daily application for the junior high student. Students can anticipate fun outreach events and games at our Tuesday night CREW meeting. It would be our desire that each will also experience servant leadership opportunities by inviting friends to CREW weekday meetings. By learning God’s word through our weekly message and small groups, we believe students will have the opportunity to become Spiritual Champions for Christ.
