God calls us to live the Christian life not alone but in community. Seeking to encourage each other in the faith, each person is placed into one of 12 intergenerational geographically-defined Communities. This is the main way in which we carry out our ministry. For further information please see Communities.
Teen Club (Grades 7 - 8)
Teen Club is for teens in Grades 7 - 8. The group meets once a month on Friday for a mixture of fun social nights and space to go deeper in faith and with one another.
Impact (Grades 9 - 12)
Impact is our high school youth ministry for teens in Grades 9 - 12. This year we’re focusing on God’s invitation to mission through service, vocation, and how we live our everyday lives as followers of Jesus. Through Fireside Chats, Discipleship Group discussions, and hands-on Service projects, we will explore together what it looks like to take the mission of God seriously in the world around us.
We follow a monthly rhythm:
- The first two Wednesdays (7-8:30 PM) of the month are our Big Group Nights/Fireside chats with social time, hands-on learning of a faith practice, and SNACKS.
- The third week of the month is set aside for Discipleship Groups, our opt-in small groups that meet at a time and place that works for the group.
- The fourth week of the month includes a social evening that's just about having fun together.

DEEPENING FAITH CLUSTERS
For those who are new to CCRC, who are thinking about making profession of faith, wish to join our congregation, or just want a space in which to explore their faith, we have a small group for you! Each Deepening Faith Cluster is made up of 4-6 people, led by a pastor, and meets 5-6 times at a time and place that works best for the group. We focus our discussions by asking four central questions: What does it mean to be Christian? What does it mean to be Reformed? What does it mean to be Christian Reformed? What does it mean to belong to Community CRC? Wanna join a cluster? Contact Pastor Amanda.
