…set an example for the believers in speech,
in life, in love, in faith and in purity. – 1 Timothy 4:12

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

 

REVIVE Youth Group
E4D41189-22F1-4E46-8DB6-8367B44A429EThis energetic and ambitious group of 7th through 12th graders enjoy being together while learning about the lessons in the Bible and how to apply them to real life.  Whether they are hitting the road for a mission trip, or just hanging out in the youth room, this group has it going on! (Temporarily on hold)

REVIVE Youth Worship
Plan to join your friends for this unique Youth Worship Event that meets virtually at 10:15am every Sunday. We are VERY excited to offer this alternative worship opportunity for the Youth of CCC and their friends – 7th grade and up.

Coffee Talk – 2nd & 4th Sundays after church
Everyone is invited to Coffee Talk on the 2nd and 4th Sundays each month to enjoy “Youthful Conversation with the rest of the World!” We will begin with a theme or topic of discussion and see where it leads us! Join us after church on at Café de Oro (2175 Deerfield Rd. at Saunders, next to the Mobil station). Your suggestions for themes and topics are encouraged! (Temporarily on hold)

 
 
Dear CCC youth families and congregation,
 
I am blessed and grateful to take on the job of interim youth and children’s ministries director. As a lifelong member of our church I am deeply committed to the spiritual growth of our children and youth as well the strength and longevity of this ministry.
 
 
As I step into this role I carry with me the spiritual foundation and faith that has been instilled in me by our youth ministry and our entire church community. I also bring with me the skills and experience to engage and lead our youth. For 5 years I served as a senior member of the Regional youth council for the Disciples of Christ Illinois and Wisconsin region. In this role I helped plan large scale youth ministry events, write and deliver spiritually enriching curriculum, and collaborated with church leaders across the region. Throughout both high school and college while maintaining my leadership and involvement with our youth ministry, I have also participated in several other youth ministries throughout the Chicago area.
 
As I step into this crucial role of guiding the spiritual development of our youth I hope to incorporate new ideas and connections that I have gained from my experience in youth ministry thus far. As I begin this new role I ask for your prayers over both myself and our youth, that we may use this time to grow deeper in our faith and love of Christ, as well as in our connection and love as a church community.

Youth Room
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. (Temporarily closed due to the pandemic)

2015-05-10 10.03.46Pastor’s Class
Pastor’s Class enables children starting at 6th grade 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, 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. (Temporarily on hold)

Outreach
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.

Mission Trip  
For the 2020 CCC Mission Trip, we reserved 20 spaces to make sure we accommodated everyone who wished to serve with us in Colorado Springs, Colorado with Next Step Ministries
