The youth of Community Christian Church developed their own vision statement:
CCC Youth Vision Statement:
To gather as friends in a fun, safe environment
to share stories and learn how to center
our lives on Christ
…set an example for the believers in speech,
in life, in love, in faith and in purity.
~ 1 Timothy 4:12
This energetic and ambitious group of 5th through 12th graders enjoy being together while learning about the lessons in the Bible and how to apply them to real life. They go on outings, serve the community and stay at church for games and “Lock-ins”. Whether they are hitting the road for a mission trip, or just hanging out in the youth room, this group has it going on!
REVIVE Youth Group Meetings
The youth meet regularly on Sundays after church at 11:15am – 12:15pm. Activities planned for each month include: learning about their faith; fellowship; outings; playing games and developing unique outreach projects. The exception is on the 3rd Sunday each month when the youth enjoy their own worship time including communion. Scroll down to see more specific information and the youth calendar.
1st & 3rd Sunday REVIVE Worship at 10:00am
Plan to join your friends for these Youth Worship Events. This will be a unique service meeting in the Youth Room on the 3rd Sunday each month at 10:00am. Special lesson plans are being made by Justin and you will enjoy some of the usual worship customs like communion, etc. We are VERY excited to offer this alternative worship opportunity for the Youth of CCC and their friends – 6th grade and up for 1st Sunday and 4th grade and up for 3rd Sunday. After the services, high school aged youth will meet for Coffee Talk.
Coffee Talk – 3rd Sunday of each month at 11:30am
After the 3rd Sunday REVIVE Worship service , high school aged youth get together to chat about what it’s like being a young adult Christian…YES, there will be coffee and other hot beverages!

This is a great place, designed and created by the youth with the help and support of adult CCC friends. Youth are encouraged to study, play, be creative and socialize together in this space. The room will evolve as the youth grow, while remaining a fun, comfortable sanctuary to them
Pastor’s Class enables children and adults alike to learn and explore the life of faith and become baptized members. Whether you are new to the faith or a long-time church goer, so long as you are in the 6th grade or older, you are welcome to join this class to consider baptized membership or confirmation in Community Christian church and the wider “Body of Christ.” The sessions will be interactive, conversational, and they will provide an opportunity for us all to better learn about ourselves and the faith we profess.
Many opportunities are available to the youth to serve their community and the world around them: Soup Kitchen; PADS Lunches; Mission Trips; Feed My Starving Children; church work days and assisting in Sunday School. It is the desire of the Youth Leadership Team (YLT) to encourage service in whatever way a young person envisions.
Start planning your summer and make sure to include CCC’s Mission Trip July 29 – August 5. We’ll work with YouthWorks again and travel to Lake Traverse, South Dakota, with a stop – hopefully – in Owatonna, Minnesota to visit our friends we made last year in Washington, DC! More details will follow, but if you know we can count you IN – let us know! This exciting trip is open to students who have completed 6th grade in the spring of 2016 through seniors who have graduated in the spring of 2016.
