Welcome!  We look forward to you joining us!

Beginning in September we meet on Wednesday evenings at Christ Church of Dubuque at 6:30- 7:45 PM in the youth room. When you attend, evenings consist of fun games, worship music, prayer and teaching.

Our belief is that a youth ministry can play a critical role in the building of God’s Kingdom.  The teen years are critical years of transition from the care and direction of the parents to one of more autonomy (yet not complete autonomy).  It is during these years that many may come to saving faith, begin to have Christian fellowship outside of the home or may begin to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those around them.  With that in mind we set forth the following vision for youth ministry at Christ Church of Dubuque:

The vision of youth ministry at CCD is to raise up young worshipers of God.  It is our desire to lead them to worship Him who has saved them, through the clear preaching of His Word.  With the transforming word renewing their minds, we seek to provide opportunities for them to worship Him as living sacrifices through:

  • Song
  • Fellowship
  • Service
  • Evangelism
  • Obedience
  • Preparation for Vocation
  • Right Relationships
  • Prayer

With that in mind, we view youth group and youth activities as opportunities for youth to join together in joyful fellowship, aimed at preparing young men and women to be life long worshipers of God in all areas of their lives.  The focus of youth events will be centered around teaching from God’s Word in order that all of the hearer’s may come to, or be strengthened in, the saving faith.  With God’s word speaking to all areas of their lives they will be well on their way to run with endurance a faith filled life and to be prepared for every good work.
