Student Ministries

Middle School | High School

Wednesdays at New Hope

CORE is the middle school youth group.

CRAVE is the high school youth group.

Both meet at the same time on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:30pm, but remain separate youth groups.

Middle schoolers need to know that there are some things that aren't changing. You're loved. You're liked. You belong.

Core is designed to give middle schoolers a lasting understanding of these three things:

  1. Wonder - I will love God because He will never stop loving me.
  2. Discovery - I will follow Jesus because He knows me better than I know myself.
  3. Passion - I will live out God's story so others can know who Jesus is.

Core hang out time.

When our Cravers graduate from high school, we don't want them to graduate from their faith!

Crave is designed to give high schoolers a lasting understanding of these three things:

  1. Wonder - I am created to pursue an authentic relationship with my Creator.
  2. Discovery - I belong to Jesus and define who I am by what He says.
  3. Passion - I exist every day to demonstrate God's love to a broken world.
Crave serving others.
