CrossWalk is an updated approach to confirmation utilizing the insights of Just a Phase Project researchers, from Orange/ReThink Group, and what they have learned through this research about the importance of the middle school phase in a child’s life.  Here is an overview of CrossWalk, our new ministry to middle schoolers:


Each year we will teach a different focus and truth we want middle schoolers to remember:

6th Grade - God’s Story (I will love God because He will never stop loving me.)

7th Grade - My Story (I will follow Jesus because He knows me better than I know myself.)

8th Grade:  Our Story (I will live out God’s story so others can know who Jesus is.)


Key Components in Every Year:

- Overnight Retreat

- Prayer Partner who connects with them weekly and meets with them once a semester

- What’s Your Story? Luncheons

- Weekly Gathering from September through mid-December


Special Considerations for 8th Graders:

- attend Discover Restoration to become a church member

- utilize StrengthsFinders to help them understand how God has wired them


Opportunities for adults and high school students to SHOW UP at CrossWalk:

- Adult leaders for each grade level

- HS leaders for each grade level

- Prayer partners for students

- Retreat Organizers

- Luncheon Hosts


What will the weekly gathering look like this fall?

Middle schoolers will meet from 5:45-7:15pm at the AshCreek Clubhouse beginning September 11th in the back room with dividers that will separate into three rooms. Meetings will end December 11th. We will be offering pizza for dinner each week at 5:30pm for students that would like to join us then for a little extra time to fellowship! More details to follow!

Launch (grades 6-12; introduction band for all new youth musicians):  Launch is the perfect band for beginning musicians and tech specialists, and it is the starting point for all new musicians and tech members, no matter the skill level, before they are placed on a more advanced team. This team is adult led, but Launch students are also mentored by student leaders from the Generation worship team. All brand new members to Restoration’s youth worship teams start at Launch, where students learn musical and technical skills in a safe, encouraging environment. Sixth-grade youth worship team students are asked to spend at least one year in Launch before moving on to another team. Students who attend Launch and show advanced skills will be given the opportunity to move to another team that will better challenge them and help them grow. Students on the other youth worship teams who want extra training or want to try a new instrument or skill are welcome to attend Launch. Launch meets each Wednesday evening during the school year from 6:00-7:00 at the Libbys’ house (10081 Cool Spring Rd., Mechanicsville, VA 23116).


Generation (grades 7-12; intermediate and advanced skill levels):  Generation is intended to be the training ground where students with intermediate to advanced skills learn to work together as a team and lead worship. It is open to all student musicians and technicians in grades 7-12. Generation students get regular opportunities to put their skills to use at church and outreach events. Rehearsals are held during the school year each Thursday evening from 6:00-7:15 at the Libbys’ house (10081 Cool Spring Road, Mechanicsville, VA  23116).


Limitless (advanced skill levels):  Limitless operates on an invitation-only membership. All members from the previous year are invited to participate during the current year.  Other members will be added as positions become available and the need arises.  This team is for students who have had time to develop skills and are largely self-sufficient in the use of their musical or technical talents.  This advanced team is student led under adult supervision.  The goal of Limitless is to build a repertoire so that they are always ready to go into the community and bring worship music to places where it would not otherwise be available.  Rehearsals are the first and third Wednesday of every month during the school year from 7:15-8:30 at the Libbys’ house (10081 Cool Spring Road, Mechanicsville, VA  23116).


We believe in the God of restoration – a gracious God who loves us and calls us to share His life-restoring love and grace with others. With love, we embrace life together as we multiply deeper relationships in Christ.


Join us Sunday mornings for coffee and fellowship at 9:30. Worship at 10:00.
