Country Club Christian Church’s Youth Ministry serves grades 6-12 and has opportunities for faith formation and relationship on Sundays and throughout other days of the week during each month of the calendar year.
Country Club Christian Church is committed to joining with youth to have fun, grow together, learn about God and faith, and make the world a better place.
Spirituality – seeking and feeling connected to God’s love.
Engagement – thinking, questioning, and serving in a fun and energetic environment.
Inclusivity – welcoming all with humility and acceptance.
Open-mindedness – teaching, modeling and experiencing diversity of thought, behavior, ability, difference and opinion.
Relational – being invested, loved and equally valued by being connected to one another.
How We celebrate Our Youth
In addition to journeying through everyday life alongside our youth we are honored to celebrate larger milestones both in Sunday worship and the daily life of our church with them.
Youth Ministry includes the following milestones, in addition to the opportunities for service and fellowship featured in the links at the left.
Pastors’ Class provides 6th graders time, space, and tools to more clearly name their identity as Christians and their connection to this faith community. The sessions help the youth identify what God is doing in the world; reflect on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus; explore how this impacts who and how they are in the world. This class begins in the season of Lent. Youth will have the opportunity to celebrate these insights and transformation through the ritual of baptism and church membership on Palm Sunday.
We celebrate our graduating seniors in worship and wish them well as they look toward the future. This is typically the first Sunday of May and culminates in a Senior Brunch for youth, their families, and important church mentors.
