July & August Family Worship Month
for JH & SH Sunday School
No JH or SH Sunday School on Communion Sunday
Welcome JH & SH Students, please join us during first service after worshiping with your family during the announcements, music and offertory. Please walk downstairs to the Junior & Senior High rooms.
Communion Sundays: There is no class during 1st service or on communion Sundays. We encourage that this time be that of families/friends partaking in communion together. We believe the Lord’s Table is a special event that is powerful for believing students to partake in, or for unbelievers just to observe service.
*No class is available during second service.
We encourage students to attend service with their family. *Junior and Senior High Sunday Mornings
are only offered during the 8:45 AM service on Sunday mornings at CRCC.

Senior High (9-12) students.
- Love (Loving God and
- Serve (Serving our church and
- Disciple (Equipping, teaching,
and walking with students to build followers of Christ)
Vision and Mission of Student
We strive to reach all students
with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that faith in Christ
comes by hearing the Word of God (Romans 10:17)
and that there is no program, curriculum, or activity that is more potent
than the transforming power of the Gospel. Based on this fact, we preach
the Word believing that through the power of Gods word (Hebrews 4:12),
God’s Holy Spirit will work in the hearts of are students. The closer teens
get to the college age the more they begin to develop and own their own
faith. Our vision and desire for 7th-12th grade is that we to see spiritual
kids mature into adults, from biblical exposition to practical application,
and we want to see Christ ignite sparks of curiosity into flames of faith
in Him. We do not want to develop a student ministries that simply
entertains kids, but one that is deeply rooted in the love of Christ,
actively and selflessly giving and serving within the body of Christ and
their local community. As we develop a biblical world view through the
teaching of Gods word, small group leaders will come alongside our students
in order to develop a deeper relationship with Christ through one on one
Our mission is to see youth grow by giving opportunities to develop through
loving, serving, and discipleship. These three targets are the mission that
we are setting ourselves out to accomplish.
Love: In Luke 10:25-27 a
lawyer attempts to put Jesus to the test by asking him what is written in
the law concerning eternal life, Jesus responds by saying that, “you shall
love the Lord God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind, and your
neighbor as yourself.” These two are the greatest commandments but what
does that look like in our own walk? How do I love God? Who is my neighbor
and how do I love him? What does it look like to love God in our daily walk
through our praises, prayer life, study of scripture, and our obedience? As
believers it is important to understand that our obedience is not motivated
by gaining Gods love or acceptance. Instead, our obedience is fueled by His
acceptance of us and love for us in and through His beloved Son, Jesus
Christ. The Love of God transcends knowledge so it is not something that is
simply taught but it is something that is experienced the more we mature in
our faith. We can also grow in love for one another as we continue to
mature in the fruit of the Spirit. As leaders our job is to shepherd and
lead by example by living our own lives in testimony of this love (1 John 3:16).
Serve: In an attempt to be like
Christ, it is our purpose to allow the humility that is brought about in us
through the work of the Holy Spirit through serving those within the body
of Christ in our church, as well as those outside of the church.
Through serving those within the local church the younger congregational
members of the church (the youth) first learn to become self-less servants
who are better apt to lead the church in a God honoring manner.
Pride, the main idol in the natural man, needs to be replaced with
humility. Through serving those outside of the church, the youth do not
lose sight of the world that is lost and in need of a savior. The command
found in Acts
1:8 starts with serving in local areas and moves out to the
more remote. This is the same plan of service that we have adopted
for our youth group. Christ went outside of what was “normal” and
customary for the Jews of that time and we believe that through following
His example youth will be allowed to: (1) practice what they have been
learning, (2) learn to trust God in ways that might not be possible in
their current living conditions, (3) and glorify God even when they don’t
feel like it.
Disciple: In Matthew 28:19,
Christ commands his disciples to “Go and make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I commanded you…”. It is our
purpose to fulfill this command in its entirety to the best of our ability
by making disciples. We not only want youth to come to repentance and
salvation, but we also want to see them grow in their sanctification and
aid them in any and every way that we possibly can. While we believe that
we are fully sanctified through faith in Christ, this sanctification is not
perfected while we are here in this life. There still remains some portions
of the sinful natural man in every part of us. The sinful remnants
and habits are what we spend a lifetime fighting against and youth need to
not only be made aware of this fact so as not to be frustrated in their
early years of their Christian life, but also they need to be given
effective weapons to fight against those sinful habits. Our mission is to
come alongside individuals as they are taking their first steps into
spiritual maturity. This is the process of discipleship that we seek to
take each youth through whom God has placed under our care.
