Youth Ministry

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

Our work in youth ministry is to serve, support and empower families. 

Our goal is to help families do what they do better than anyone else: instill a rich and full sense of Christian identity in their children, and equip them to be the Church in the world.

Christ Church youth are engaged in service, Bible study, and other opportunities for spiritual growth in a safe and fun community of peers and caring adults. 

We stay connected with students and provide the comforts of a spiritual home for young people as they grow in their faith. Perhaps most importantly, Christ Church provides youth with a place where they can get to know a “great cloud of witnesses” — adults who share a common sense of values and a common delight in teenagers. 

If we can be of support to your family, please feel free to contact Maggie Baker at at any time. 

Youth Pilgrimage

Each June, a group of 10th grade pilgrims and leaders set out on a journey to reflect on one’s relationship with God, self, and other. In the past, Pilgrimages have been to Alaska, Canada, Ireland, Belize, Wales, Camino de Santiago and Croatia. This year, we are inviting 10th AND 11th grade pilgrims to go on the pilgrimage.

We are excited to announce our 2023 Youth Pilgrimage to Scotland in June!


Autobell Gift Card Fundraiser

Help support the 10th and 11th grade students traveling to Scotland in June! Pilgrims will be selling Autobell gift cards to raise funds for the trip. Gift cards can be purchased on Sundays, December 4 and 18 in the Church Circle before and after worship services, or in the GoodNews Shop any time they are open.

Pilgrim Participation

We encourage all pilgrims to participate in these events:

  • Sunday Night Live: Sundays, 6 - 7:30 pm, either in the Church circle (weather-permitting) or in St. Francis C & Youth Room
  • Life Group: Wednesdays, 7 – 8 pm

There will be a required parent and pilgrim meeting in late May to go over packing lists, travel logistics, and other questions parents and pilgrims may have. That date will be determined soon. 

We are excited about sharing this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with your family and youth! Please contact Maggie Baker at  with any questions.
