5G High School Youth Group is a new ministry at Holy Cross Lutheran Church designed specifically for 9th – 12th grade students including students who will be entering 9th grade in the fall of 2019.


The goal of 5G High School Youth Group is to create a positive group dynamic while establishing the foundation for youth and adults, walking alongside each other in relationship, as both grow and mature in their faith in Christ. 5G High School Youth Group is based on Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace you have been saved through faith. This is not your own doing but is a gift from God.”


5G High School Youth Group will be facilitated by Dale Tippett, Jr. (Director of Contemporary Music).

Each evening’s schedule is fast-paced and interactive:

6:30 pm     Opening group game

6:45 pm     Good food* and introductions  (*complimentary)

7:00 pm     Contemporary pop music (led by Dale and the 5G High School Youth Group band)

7:15 pm      Grace Moment: Facilitated sharing related to how God’s grace is apparent in our lives.

7:30 pm     Team building/challenge activity

Upcoming Dates and Topics:



Sunday, November 17 from 5 to 8:30 pm: Community        

When things get too busy or stressful it’s easy to find yourself feeling disconnected from the world and even those closest to you. We will explore ways to stay connected. As a way of exploring how communities work together, we will be participating in a Mobile Escape Room experience. Games, food and discussion will be held in between, during and after the escape room sessions.  


Sunday, December 15: Holiday

Holly jolly jingle jam spectacular with glistening gift-giving, games and gags. On this fun night we will be celebrating the light of the world born into a manger. We will celebrate with all the typical 5G fun with a Christmas twist. Who will make the best “Who” (house of Whoville) in gingerbread houses? Do you know the most Christmas songs? We will also exchange gag gifts through games. Each person is asked to bring a “white elephant” gift or a real gift (your choice!) worth about $5. The more outrageous the better!
