Country Club Christian Church’s Youth Ministry serves grades 6-12 and has various opportunities for faith formation and relationship. Some of our activities are below. Look for our news and events on our website, sign up for texting reminders (remind.com/join/cccckcyo) or for our weekly email newsletter , or email Rev. Tyler Heston, Minister to Youth, for more information about programs and activities.
Join us (almost) every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. for Sunday school: a chance to connect with peers and learn more about faith and life. We meet in the Youth Center (205) for announcements before activities, usually splitting into middle school and high school.
Sunday Night Youth Groups
Join us Sunday nights from September through April for a chance to play, rest, and connect with friends before another week of school. We meet from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., beginning with a small supper (suggested donation: $3) and continuing with different games, activities, and discussion for middle schoolers and high schoolers. Some weeks, we go off-site for socials and service-projects.
Socials, Lock-ins, and Service Projects
Want to connect outside of a Sunday? We have a variety of activities throughout the year, from fun socials to annual lock-ins at the church and service projects with our partner organizations.
Summer Service-Learning Trips
Each summer, the middle school and high school youth groups each go on a service-learning trip somewhere outside of Kansas City. We partner with nonprofits bringing change and transformation to their community to serve and learn about how God’s love is made known in the world, and we take a day to do something fun, celebrating our work and learning. Service-learning trips are an incredible way to connect with others in the youth group as we grow together in our service and faith.
Throughout the year, youth will participate in worship arts projects as part of our weekly 11:00 worship service. Sara and Alex Goering coordinate these projects, varying from dramatic reading of Scriptures to choral and musical performances.
Pastors’ Class provides youth, usually in the sixth grade, time, space, and tools to more clearly understand their identity as Christians and their connection to this faith community. The class begins in the spring and ends with baptism and joining the church on Palm Sunday.
