Bethlehem Lutheran Church Sun Prairie, WI


CrossFire (Grades 6-8)

Where did we get the name, CrossFire?  Ephesians 6:16 says, “…take up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”   We need to keep our faith in Jesus strong, because Satan is trying his best to break us. Our faith, our hope, and our trust in Jesus will remain strong when we stay connected to Him. CrossFire is a place where we know our faith will not be compromised in the activities we do and the friends we maintain. Jesus conquered those flaming arrows for us with his death on the cross and resurrection. We’re gonna live for Him!

This youth group is for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders, and meets periodically throughout the school year for fun, fellowship and community service activities.

“In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” (Ephesians 6:16)
