Youth Ministry at Casa View Christian Church is action-oriented and community focused. The youth speak into and engage the overall mission of Casa View Christian Church. Rev. Susan Blanchard helps both children and teens find their gifts and use them in meaningful and life-giving ways. She also helps children and teens connect faith with real life struggles and issues. Youth volunteer with our children’s ministry, sing on the praise team, play an instrument on the praise team, lead in worship and engage various mission initiatives. They are also usually the first to volunteer for our numerous community events.
Youth Opportunities Include:
- Sunday School: 9:00 AM on Sunday Mornings. Youth explore Biblical topics. Some past studies have included: the book of Mark, the 10 commandments, how to live as a Christian in a secular world, guilt, loneliness, and identity.
- Youth Group: 6 PM on Wednesday Nights. Youth gather together and tackle the subjects that affect them from a faith perspective. Some past topics: drugs, alcohol, peer pressure, parental relationships, friendships, dating, sex, trafficking, spiritual practices, dealing with pressure, picking a direction in life, and living a life that matters.
- Mission Trip: Each summer the youth travel somewhere and try to make a difference in that community. This is also an opportunity for youth to learn what it means to serve God and live in Christian community with one another. Past trips have focused on: homelessness, hunger, children living in poverty, food scarcity, food deserts, elderly, handicapped, civil rights, and inequality.
- Area Youth Events: The youth participate in events with other youth from our denomination across the wider Central Texas area. These include Fall Retreat, Midwinter Retreat, and Summer Camping.
