Middle Schoolers enjoy activities in the church that are more action- oriented and allow them to ask questions as they wonder about their life together with one another and God. Our programs give space for young people to build friendships, have fun and learn their faith.

Sunday School

Sundays at 10 AM in the Guild Hall and Zoom

This is a hybrid online and in-person meeting. Please contact Kellie Herdade for Zoom access!

Cranbrook Choristers

Youth are encouraged to join Cranbrook Choristers, which rehearses Mondays from 5-6 PM via Zoom and one other time during the week for a private music lesson tailored to your youth’s age/experience. Contact Christopher Wells to learn more about this amazing musical opportunity. Youth whose voices have changed are invited to audition for the Christ Church Choir.

Our high school programming aims to provide sacred space for growing up. High Schoolers are dealing with the stress of school and extracurricular activities, as well as managing life as a teenager. CCC offers a place that allows them to be themselves, be refreshed and experience God’s unconditional love no matter what is happening in their lives.
