If you are a middle school, high school, or college student looking for a place to connect with your peers, grow in your faith and have a lot of fun at the same time, then you're in the right place. Each of our environments (Refuge for middle school, Mosaic for high school, and Crave for college age) are unique and have been created with you in mind. For the 2020/2021 school year, both Mosaic and Refuge programming will take place at each of our campuses on Sundays at 1:30 (as well as 4:30 at the St. Charles Campus). In addition to in person programming, an online program and groups will also be available.
In each of our ministries, you'll find: adult volunteers who love God and young people, relevant Bible teaching, and community groups where you can ask honest questions and find real answers - and a lot of fun. Keep reading below to explore all that is happening here in the Christ Community Student Ministry.
Online Programming & Digital Groups
Online programs will begin on Wednesday, September 16th! Our live program will air every Wednesday at 6:30pm and be available for anyone who wants to jump on for viewing. Online Community Groups require registration and group discussions will take place Wednesday evenings, following the livestream. We encourage students to view the program, which will be made available on our Youtube Channel, prior to engaging in the group discussion.
To register for an online community group, please use the buttons below. Registration will be temporarily closed from Sunday, September 13th- Monday, September 21st.
On Campus Programming
Wait Lists are now open below. Students are not considered fully registered until you receive notification of their status being moved from Wait List to Registered.
In person programs are available at each of our campuses. Space is limited and pre-registration is required to attend our program and groups on campuses. We also ask that anyone participating in any event on campus reads and agrees to the Christ Community Church Participation Agreement. For a brief overview of these groups, see below:
- Our in person program will kick off on Sunday, September 20th at each of our campuses and take place from 1:30p-3p. St Charles Campus will have an additional time slot available from 4:30-6pm.
- We have a 50 person capacity for each of the rooms where our programming will be held. To help foster good group discussion, our group sizes will also be smaller than they have in the past. Because of the limited number of students we can have in the building at any time, we do ask that when you sign up for groups you are sure you can come consistently. In the event that your student misses group with no explanation, for 4 weeks or more, we will reach out to you to confirm whether or not they would like to forfeit their space.
- Students will be required to maintain social distance guidelines while they attend our in person programs. A more in-depth overview of these guidelines, as well as additional safety measures that we will be taking are included in the Online and In Person FAQ Sheet that is linked below.
