A crucible is a tool used to refine metal into higher quality metal to be used in tools. The Crucible seeks to partner with parents to help disciple youth in their faith by refining them into tools for the Kingdom of God. By answering questions about Christianity and the Bible in Club 56, to learning about the doctrines of the faith in Middle School, to dealing with the practical application of scripture to our lives in High School, we hope to equip our students with a biblical worldview as they prepare to go to college and live a faithful christian life beyond. Our Youth Leaders are amazing and talented and are here for your family!
We meet on Wednesdays from 6:30 till 8:00. We have a group game, worship with our youth band, and then separate out into 3 different classes based on grade level.
Club 56 - 5th and 6th Grade
In Club 56 we are trying to bridge the gap between Kid's Ministry and Youth Group. We want to help students start asking questions and getting answers for their faith. We will ask questions like: Is God Real?, Is the Bible Trustworthy?, What is the Church all about?, and more. We use the Bible to answer these questions by walking through several books (Luke & Acts, Genesis, etc) and showing how these questions are answered in Scripture. Club 56 builds a foundation the the rest of the student's time in Youth will build upon.
Middle School - 7th and 8th Grade
In middle school your student will study 2 main things: Bible Doctrine (sometimes called catechism) and Bible Survey. Catechism will help give students a working understanding of what we believe and where it comes from in the Bible. It will also help to give them working conversation topics when confronted with questions about their faith. Bible Survey provides broad sweeping pictures of what each book of the Bible has in it, who wrote the book, what the historical context was, and most importantly how it applies to their lives currently.
High School - 9th - 12th Grade
High school is where we start using the Bible to work through life application topics. Things like how to find a Biblical church in college, what our spiritual gifts are, what the Bible has to say about our identity, spiritual warfare, apologetics, and what our purpose in life should be are all discussed from a biblical perspective. We end the evening with small groups to talk through the lesson, pray together, and hold each other accountable.
We only get to hang out with your children a few hours each week. You are the real disciple makers! We want to support you in any way we can. We have a facebook group that has many resources for you to use such as:
- AXIS.org membership and access to all of their resources and seminars
- Resource packs dealing with conversations about anxiety, LGBTQ, self harm, porn, and other issues we are facing in today's culture
- Other parents that are able to talk with you about their lives and struggles.
If we can be of help, we are here for you. Our youth team is the best group of people I know, and they are dedicated to helping you grow your child into a godly man or woman.
