Students

 

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. - 1 Timothy 4:12


We believe that teenagers occupy a great position in the Kingdom: they are simultaneously both the current & future leaders of the Church. In the years to come, the current generation of teenagers will step into the roles of deacons, Sunday school teachers, preachers, worship leaders, and missionaries. And currently they are our missionaries to some of the most unchurched in cultures. CCC wants to equip teenagers to be the committed Christ-followers and leaders they are meant to be. We believe we do that by cultivating three relationships. 

First is the VERTICAL. That's our relationship with God. We want students to grow in their love for Jesus and their obedience to Him. This happens primarily through worship and discipleship.

Second is the INNER. That's our relationship with other believers. We want students to build and strengthen relationships with other believers, both for their joy and for the good of Christ's Kingdom. This happens primarily through fellowship and discipleship.

Last is the OUTER. That's our relationship with those who aren't yet Christ-followers. We want students to be equipped and challenged to love, serve, and take the gospel to the nations. This happens primarily through ministry and evangelism.

Bottom line is that we exist to help students own their faith through worshiping Christ,
loving the community of faith, and serving the nations.

And crucial in all this is the role of the family. CCC believes strongly that the family is the God-ordained place for discipleship to happen. So every chance we get, we try to equip parents to be the primary disciplers of their children. You can get our parent resources every two weeks in our Parent Newsletter (contact Ryan to get signed up).

WEEKLY EVENTS

Each week our student ministry meets for times of Bible study, worship, and fellowship.

Midweek
Each Wednesday night we have a worship gathering designed specifically for students. It's a time of games, fellowship, worship, Bible study, and discussion. This is a great time for students to invite friends! We typically have a different series every month, so check the schedule below to see what we are studying.

Our October series is called "THE GREATEST SHOW". We will be discussing how we tend to put on a show because we don't really know who we are. We will talk about our true identity in Jesus as loved and forgiven children who have a purpose and belong to God. Don't miss out this month!

*Make a special note that on Wednesday, October 10, are normal Midweek bible study will not meet at the church. We will be participating in FCA's Fields of Faith night at Kelly Reeves Stadium. If your student would like to go and needs a ride, make sure they sign up in the foyer by Sunday, October 7. We will meet at the church at 6:45 and will return to the church between 8:45 and 9:00pm.

Rooted

Each Sunday morning we meet for Rooted, our Sunday school Bible study for students. This is a time of focused Bible study where we want students to encounter the gospel throughout the stories in the Bible. We our currently using the Gospel Project as our curriculum, tackling the narrative of the Bible in chronological fashion. This is a great time for students to get rooted in what they believe and grow in their knowledge of Christ.
