A Partnering with Parents seminar by Dr. Ken Wilgus.
6 - 12th Grade. Every Sunday morning, students at all age levels may gather for an intimate, casual time of teaching on various topics, fellowship, and worship. At the passing of the peace, students move to the sanctuary for Holy Communion.
6th Grade. Students in their first year of middle school are invited to join Virtues for Students. Over nine months, the class explores what it actually looks like to live as a Christian by examining signs or habits of a Christian life in the world. The class seeks to form character through growth in wisdom and practice in daily choosing “the good.” Classes are led through teaching by clergy and lay instructors, regular prayer, small group activities, and conversation with peers.

7-8th Grade. Whether or not your student is pursuing Confirmation, this is a great class to join. It is open to all 7-8th graders, good for community building, and different every year. It surveys Biblical and Christian doctrine through a two-year cycle (and doubles as a Confirmation requirement for those interested). The course engages history, the arts, world events, and devotional life to help guide middle school students through though questions of faith, doubt, identity, relationships, and God’s presence in the world today.

9-12th Grade. Building on the Essentials curriculum, High School Sunday School is designed to move students deeper into an adult faith. Curriculum and activities concentrate on increasing and putting into practice the love of God, especially through love of neighbor.

6-12th Grade. Students gather on Wednesday evening for food, conversation, in-depth teaching, and mentoring by trained volunteers. The concession stand opens at 6 p.m. in the Café; teaching and small groups begin at 6:45. While adapted to student life as needed, weekly lessons and discussion are also attentive to the Church calendar and the wider Adult Education curriculum at Christ Church.
Fall Retreat. Students are encouraged to break away from their normal routine and enjoy a weekend in a quiet setting away from home. The retreat is designed to be just that, with intentional time to slow down, unplug, build friendships, find solitude, listen, and pray.
DNOW Spring Retreat. Always a highlight of the year, this weekend puts a high premium on discipleship. Large group sessions meet at the church, then break into small groups in homes, where students spend the night. It’s an excellent time for students to get more intentional, ask hard questions, and go deeper with their group leader.
Summer Camp. We spend a week with no cell phone service—taking risks and accepting new challenges, learning to be vulnerable with one another, and worshipping and reflecting in a beautiful natural setting. Students regularly come back from this experience amazed at how it helped them get to know themselves, other students, and the God Who made them.
Throughout the year, students are invited to participate in service and relationship building, both locally and internationally. We seek especially to join the wider church family in engaging healthy, long-term connections with people in our own communities.
Ongoing relationships with Christ Church include ministry and friendship at Plano Community Home, Meadows Elementary School (Plano), and Bonton Farms (Dallas). High School students are also invited to participate in periodic national and international mission trips.
Students may take their own initiative to join Christ Church in these relationships, or join in specific events organized by Student Ministry throughout the year.
