I write to you, young people, because you are strong and the word of God abides in you…
–  1 John 2:14

At Christ Church Greenwich, we believe youth are an integral part of our congregation and we joyfully welcome middle and high school students and their families.

It is a natural instinct to want to be known, seen, and loved by others around you. The heart of our youth ministry at Christ Church Greenwich is to provide a space where teens can come and be themselves, while connecting with their peers and growing in their faith. We create a space of authenticity and vulnerability, talk about our lives, enjoy spending time together, explore our spirituality, and live out our baptismal covenant.

We desire to see students gain ownership of their faith and for them to truly experience how much fun it is to live the life God intended them to live.

It is my honor and privilege to walk alongside you and your family on your journey in faith. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or if you would like to meet.

Again, welcome to Christ Church and God Bless You.

Lauren Johnson
Director of Youth Ministries
