Youth Fellowship & Service
Youth at Christ Church participate in fellowship and service activities to nurture their spiritual growth, including Youth Group and community service. We believe that youth are not only the future of the church but an important part of our everyday mission.
Our youth actively participate throughout the church, including in worship, Sunday School education, Acolytes, Choristers, Nursery, Outreach, Greeters, Ushers, Lectors, and Adult Forums. Our goal is that our youth live out their faith in their daily lives.
This program for grades 6 - 12 is designed to build relationships and fellowship between youth. Youth Group provides:
- The opportunity to experience life by living and working together in ways that incorporate Christian values and practices
- Nurturing for the spiritual growth of each individual
- The chance for youth to discover a “soul-shaking, heart-waking, world-changing God”
Youth group typically meets on Sundays during Sunday School hour for a time of learning and planning. We also participate in a cooperative of youth groups in our CenMoCo Region, including those from St. James and St. Francis. During the course of the year, the youth groups meet for activities at the three churches for fun and service activities. Below is a schedule of events planned for Spring of 2022.
