Youth Service and Missions
Belonging. Believing. Becoming.
As Living Proof disciples, Christ Church youth serve year round. We integrate service opportunities into Sunday morning, Youth Group, youth choirs, and even retreats. Options include meal-packing for Love the Hungry, writing notes of encouragement to home-bound members and college students, singing at nursing homes, making sleeping mats for the homeless, and more!
We also offer a variety of summer mission experiences. These include local, regional, national, and international opportunities to be living proof of God’s love and to experience how God is present and at work through our lives and through the lives and ministries of others.
