Youth (6th-12th grade)
Tuesdays at 6:30pm in the multipurpose room!
Worship, games and bible study in large & small groups
Sundays at 9:30am in the 1st portable

Purpose (the why):  We want to enable youth (grades 6-12) to experience God’s love for them, learn who they are in Christ, and how to live for Him by encouraging relationships with mentors, parents and peers for Bible teaching, serving those in need, inspiring worship, creative activities, and Gospel conversations in a grace-based and accepting environment. 

We desire to create a community where students encounter God and His Word, and together build Christian character, Kingdom values, beliefs and behaviors through innovative methods that excite and inspire youth in their relationship with Christ. 


Vision (the result we hope to see):  We will strive to develop men and women who know God’s love, experience His grace, understand the Gospel message, their identity in Christ, and what it means to live for Him as part of His Kingdom.


Mission (what we do):  We will engage in teaching, worship, activities and service, all done in the context of community.  We will provide opportunities for teens to build relationships with mentors, parents and peers. 


Values (how we do it):  We will establish and protect an atmosphere of grace and acceptance.  We will use creative and innovative methods that inspire and encourage students in their relationship with Christ and His people.  We will seek to create a climate of love and understanding where students, parents and adult volunteers feel safe and can thrive in their spiritual journey.

Our Goals:

The Christ Community Baptist Church Youth Group is a safe place. Our goal is to become more like Christ. The ultimate purpose for every activity our group does is to help teens fall more in love with God.


We will succeed as a Youth Group if we create an environment where everyone gets to be who they are. To do this we will need to maintain certain boundaries so that fun times are fun for everyone and more serious times are shared by everyone.


Purpose for the code of conduct:

  • To support a safe and enjoyable environment for all members of our Youth
  • To provide clear and explicit expectations for social behaviors in all Youth Group
  • Provide leaders, students, and staff with appropriate actions that address student
Parents, guardians and caregivers who have any questions or concerns are encouraged to contact the Pastor of Family Ministries or Senior Pastor.


Responsibilities of Parents / Guardians

  • Recognize and understand that youth leaders and personnel must enforce the above rules and
    policies to ensure a safe learning environment for all.
  • Teach your children to respect the rights of others and to follow youth group
  • Emphasize the importance of being a model person in both the home, the church, and in the community!
We ask each of our youth and parents to sign a code of conduct form at the beginning of each year and consent to uphold this code of conduct
