Young Adult Ministry

The young adults of our community are important to us! To meet some of the needs of this special group, we've created some opportunities for fellowship and study.

We have a Sunday School class, 20 Something, which meets every Sunday morning in room 105. We have a time for hanging out, Bible study, and discussion that will keep you motivated.

We have another class that meets on Sunday mornings, Young People's Class, taught by our Young Adult Minister, Ty Walkenshaw.

For more information about this ministry, please contact him.​

Mission’s Ministry

In addition to monetary support, Christ's Community is personally involved in many mission areas -- locally, nationally, and internationally. Anyone feeling the call to help others will find their place with our Missions Team. We send groups both large and small to help others in the community, in other states, and in other countries. Our Missions Team meets several times throughout the year and welcomes every person who would like to learn of ways to serve God by serving His people.
