Christ Church Cranbrook’s Youth Program focuses on 6th to 12th graders and offers a number of opportunities for young people to build relationships, serve their community and strengthen their faith.

6th through 8th graders meet most Sundays of the month at 9 AM.  We’ll be in room 201.

Service Opportunities – Youth participate in service projects throughout the year with our Mission Partner, Focus: HOPE in Detroit. They also serve as crew leaders each summer at Vacation Bible School, and can work any time in Christ Church Cranbrook’s Community Garden. Specific Outreach opportunities for youth will becoming soon. 2016.2017 CCC Youth Event permission slip and health form
