Community Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) seeks to engage and empower youth in ministry, through the loving Spirit of God revealed in Jesus Christ, in order to grow their faith, to grow their self-understanding of their inherent spiritual gifts, and to grow their relationship with God, each other, the church, and the world. Regardless of where a youth find’s themselves on their life’s journey, ALL are welcomed and accepted as a gift from God to be embraced, nurtured and unconditionally loved as they are.
