At Christ Church, we get that it can be overwhelming to find your place in the world, let alone at church. It can be hard to make friends and even harder to make time for God. We are a group of people sharing life together. This is a safe space to ask questions, wrestle openly, and expect more out of the church.
This ministry is geared towards meeting the array of needs of young adults, ages 18-35, and young families, those with children in 6th grade and below. We have regularly scheduled young adult and young family events now as well as a college ministry when college students come home during the summer, and will continue throughout the year to help meet the needs of local college students.
What we do and why we do it
We believe in building community through time together. This can be at our small groups, by attending and serving together at our weekly services, by attending one of our events, or by connecting with us online.
Outings- Our goal is to meet regularly (at least once a month) to get out in the community. Some of the things we have done in the past include game nights, trips into DC, laser tag, and assembling care packages for our college students.
Happy Hours- The first Tuesday of every month from 6 until 8 at Chuy’s in Springfield Town Center for happy hour and free nacho bar. This is an opportunity to invite friends and get to know each other outside of church.
Third Thursdays at LCAC- We help get things in order at the food pantry. They need help sorting food, making meal bags, and bagging rice, diapers, and wipes. Friends are welcome for this fun and important work. Pizza dinner is on us so we can focus on working and enjoying time together as we serve from 6-8pm.
Young Families also meet to serve once a month at LCAC with their kids, typically the last Sunday of the month, but not always.
Sunday afternoon small group: Time 1:37-3:00 p.m. Sundays after church. We are currently working through the Gospel Primer. Our desire is for this to be a safe space to explore our faith and share in life together. We meet at Ryan and Erika’s house, 9687 South Run Oaks Drive in Fairfax Station.
Tuesday Night College Small Group: Time Dinner at 7:00 p.m. Small Group Starting at 8:00 p.m.-ish Every Tuesday. Are you between the ages of 18 and 22? If so, this group is for you. We meet weekly to share a meal, and have some good fellowship. We meet at Ryan and Erika's house.
Yoga For Young Families: Friday mornings from 9:15-10:15am in Ignite Room 256. Traci Azato, a certified yoga instructor, is leading.
Please bring a yoga mat or towel. Free childcare is provided in our church nursery for children 3 and younger.
Christ Church is home to many Young Adults who also have young children. Or maybe you're outside the range of "Young Adult" but have young children. Do either of these descriptions fit you?
If so, you're invited to join the Young Families group at Christ Church. This is an opportunity for you to connect with other Young Families at church to have fellowship with members who are in that special life stage with you!
We'll be launching one home group for Young Families in Fall 2017 with two more being launched Spring 2018.
