Our Junior High and High School ministry, grades 7th – 12th, engages students through helping them grow in the knowledge and understanding of their faith, Bible, and spiritual identity in Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through prayerfully training servants in the area of ministry in which they serve, and encouraging their spiritual and personal development. Inviting youth into God’s family is one of our foremost top priorities. We do this by fostering relationships of accountability through transparency, trust, mentoring and biblical guidance, which create safe communities where the path of sanctification can be practiced and modeled in the lives of young people.
Young Christ Nation meets every 1st, 3rd, and 4th Sunday. Youth are released during service, immediately following the Praise & Worship period. At the 9:00 am service, they meet in our Library (East Entrance). At the 11:00 am service, they meet in our Lecture Hall next to the East Entrance. If needed, an attendant at the Welcome Desk in the Main Foyer will gladly escort your teen(s) to Youth Church.
YOUNG CHRIST NATION PROGRAMMING
Discipleship Groups also known as “D” Groups are gender-specific, closed groups of three to five individuals who meet together twice a month on 1st and 3rd Sundays, or on Wednesdays, depending on the group assignment. D Groups are formed for the purpose of accelerated spiritual transformation through diving into God’s Word together and intentional spiritual accountability.
The F.A.M. (Family Centered Material) is a carefully designed engagement exercise to grow the faith and closeness of your family. It has been developed to provide fun and entertaining experiences centered around the gospel of Jesus Christ and the vision of Young Christ Nation youth ministry here at Christ Community.
Family Community Service
Family Community Service creates opportunities in which the entire family can participate in community service activities together, which displays the love of Christ to the world. Family Community service happens once a quarter; sign-ups are online.
Parents Night Out
Parents also get the opportunity to earn points for completing monthly F.A.M.s and participating in quarterly family community service projects. Parents earn points to take advantage of the Parent’s Night Out! Three weekend nights throughout the summer, the youth ministry turns into a child care service for the purpose of giving parents the night off to do whatever they desire without worrying about the kids!
Our goal as a youth ministry is to keep parents informed of youth events and programming. We do this through a messaging service called Remind.
- We will communicate when all material is assigned as well as due dates.
- We will keep you posted on all outings and youth programming.
- We will keep parents in the loop of any sudden changes that should arise. JOIN REMIND:
