CHILDREN CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES

Mission Statement:
At Community Christian Church we create a welcoming, safe, and accepting environment for all children. Striving to be examples of God’s love in the world, we provide Christian education, fellowship, and experiences that facilitate the spiritual development of each child.
Relying on prayer, trusting in God’s will, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we work together to accomplish these goals in the following ways:

Christian Education:
JYF:  For grades 2nd thru 5th, our Junior Youth Fellowship (JYF) meets every Wednesday from 5:30 pm till 7:00 pm. For more information, call Pastor Brown (636) 290-5213.

Children’s Library
Books appropriate for children pre-school – 6th grade are available for children to read at church or to check out and read at home. Books of various reading levels feature Bible stories, Christian values, Christian holidays, and inspirational messages. There is also a small collection of books in Spanish.

Worship Experiences:

CHILDREN’S MOMENT – 8:30 a.m. & 10:45 a.m. services
An age-appropriate message is shared with the children during the worship services to highlight the morning’s scripture or to focus on the meaning of a special occasion.

ACOLYTES – 10:45 a.m. Service of Worship
Acolyte is literally a young “helper” or servant, who assists by lighting the chancel candles in the sanctuary before the service of worship to symbolize the Light of Christ in our midst. The acolyte returns at the end of the service to extinguish the candles, the smoke a reminder that it is up to us to carry the Light of Christ back out into the world.

DISCIPLES MEN

The General Conference of Disciples Men is the formal organization of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada, ministering to the unique needs of men in the church, enabling them to fulfill their potential as servants of God, strengthening to the total ministry of the church.

The Disciples Men meet on the first Thursday each month at 6:30 p.m. for a hearty meal and a rich time of fellowship, prayer, and growing together in faith.

Our meeting planning times focus on fundraising activities for the support of Lake Area Helping Hands, FTC Lighthouse Mission, Share the Harvest, Lamb House, and Salvation Army.

All men are invited to participate in our fellowship, reflection, and service activities as we seek to better live out our discipleship.

We sponsor a pancake dinner on Shrove Tuesday, a fish fry in June, and a chili dinner in November as ways to extend our mission of fellowship and service to our whole church family and beyond to the greater community.

Join us as we seek to nourish, strengthen, and encourage men!
