Jr. High (6th - 8th Grade)

At West Hills Community Church, the Junior High program is referred to as CREW. Our intention in working with all Our goal for JH youth group, 6-8th grade students is to point them to understanding Jesus Christ, develop a stronger desire to use the Bible as their primary source for learning and in knowing how to learn to make disciples for Christ in their own community. We welcome all students from all school type scenarios.

We have two primary opportunities to meet with CREW on a weekly basis: Sunday morning at 9am and Tuesday nights at 6:45 PM. Our weekly Sunday CREW time together meets for worship in songs and bible based curriculum/teaching using The Gospel Project curriculum. We currently teach straight through the Bible which completes every 3 years. at 9am.

During our weekly Tuesday CREW youth group nights, students can anticipate fun local outreach events and have games mixed in with time to kick back and enjoy time with new friends. Small aged break out groups allow leaders to get to know our students individually. This, partnered with a band that enthusiastically shares the Gospel in song and in the large group teaching taught by our WHCC Pastors makes for an impactful night!

In all we do, we point to Jesus and teach students about who God is and the message of Jesus in the Bible. Students can expect to gain a better understanding of scripture and relate learning to daily application in their active school and extra-curricular activities. Our leaders understand that this happens through learning the Word of God and building mentor relationships with the people of God. Additionally, it is 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 learn that being a person made in His image holds much meaning and a great joy!
