New energy, new vision: Welcome, Wonder, Fun & Fellowship!

There has been a lot of energy and activity around Youth Ministry at Christ Church Greenwich! We’ve gone through an exciting visioning process in order to engage families effectively and ensure sustainability. We’re creating a program with an inspiring new vision and dedicated youth space, and are currently seeking a Director of Youth Ministries to expand our offerings.

Mission

The youth ministry of Christ Church Greenwich is a community of youth and families that offers fellowship, joyful worship, service, and prayer to foster growth with each other and God.

Our Values

  • Welcome: We provide an inclusive and accepting environment.
  • Wonder: We fearlessly explore the mysteries of life within the framework of our Christian values.
  • Fun & Fellowship: We encourage youth bonding and camaraderie.

Adolescence occupies the liminal space between childhood and adulthood: perhaps more than any other stage of life, it is a time of questioning, self-discovery, discernment, and exploration. Here at Christ Church Greenwich, we seek to facilitate that exploration for middle school and high school youth, building on the foundations begun in our Children’s Ministries program. We want ALL of our middle school and high school youth to know that there is a place for each of them in the Christ Church Greenwich community!

Join us!

Mission & Service

T

ruly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me. -Matthew 25:40

In our baptismal covenant we are called to seek and serve Christ in all persons. Mission and service are an essential part of our life as Christians in the world. Christ Church Greenwich seeks to connect its youth with meaningful mission and service ministries in Greenwich and beyond. These ministries include serving with other guilds and ministries of our parish, such as serving as acolytes at Sunday worship.

Youth have joined mission trips where they have ministered with others to build camp facilities. It is our hope that by entering into ministry with others, rather than for others, our youth will have the chance to see how  they can be instruments of God’s love and empowered agents of change in a hurting and broken world.
