Wednesday Nights at 7pm

Youth Ministry at Common Ground Church

One of our core values at Common Ground Church is that we Build Bridges, which includes being multi-generational. CG Youth is our student ministry for teenagers, 6th grade through 12th grade. Our onsite services run from 7-8pm every Wednesday and your teens are welcome to show up as early as 6:30pm for some free time games and hang outs. Our focus is to create a safe environment where your students can ask questions, share their struggles and begin to navigate how to live a life for Jesus in a broken world. We win when a student takes a step in owning their own faith!

Small Groups

Small groups are a major part of what we do. I remember having so many questions when I was a teen and I really did't get any answers, clarification or even guidance for myself about God. Small Groups are your students opportunity to bring their own insight, questions and even experiences with God. The focus of our small groups is this:

  • Provide a safe place for students to ask questions
  • Remind them that they are not alone in their thoughts, and experiences
  • That they have peers and leaders who they can trust and go to for help

What We Believe

  • Bible - The scriptures are God’s divinely inspired words and therefore are our sole authority for life. 
    • 2 Timothy 3:16
  • The Trinity - There is one God who co-exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  The Trinity is equal in authority and nature, but they fulfill different roles.
    • Matthew 28:19
  • Salvation - Salvation is the free gift of God for the redemption of man from the power and penalty of sin. Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, salvation is offered to all who by faith accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
    • Romans 10:9-10
  • The Holy Spirit - Every believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit at conversion.  Every believer can also live a Spirit-filled and Spirit-empowered life. We believe all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are in operation in the church today, through the lives of believers. 
    • 1 Corinthians 12:4-7
