Youth Ministries 6th - 12th Grade

Growth Groups:

Our youth ministry at Caledonia CRC is divided into smaller Growth Groups. These groups are intended to foster an intentional community where each student belongs and is personally known and loved. Each Growth Group consists of five to eight students and is led by one or two adult leaders from the congregation. These leaders connect with their groups on a regular basis and maintain personal relationships with each student. Our focus as a youth ministry is to create Christian community that allows students to form their faith and lives after Jesus. 

WiRED & Roots Gatherings:

Roots (9th-12th) gatherings occur on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month while WiRED (6th-8th) gathers on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. During these gatherings we eat together, share a brief teaching, spend some time in our Growth Groups, and play some games. 

If you are interested in joining WiRED or Roots, please reach out to us for more information!

Engaging our Community

We encourage our students to participate in the restorative work of Jesus by serving local nonprofit organizations several times per semester. We consistently partner with Bridge Street Ministries in downtown Grand Rapids. They have done remarkable work in their community bringing the gospel and restoration!
