We highly value children and truly believe they are gifts from God! God has created your children with great plans in mind for them. Our prayer for the children at CCC is for them to embrace their youth by learning to honor the greatness of Jesus Christ by growing spiritually, living authentically, and participating in His purposes. We are dedicated to providing an environment where your children are nurtured by loving mentors and teachers.
Nursery Age: A nursery is available throughout the service for children 2 years old and younger.
PreK to Elementary Age: Children 3 years old and up attend the worship service and are released to join their teachers during the offertory.
All children’s volunteers have been cleared through a background check and a personal interview with the Children’s Director
WHAT YOUR CHILD IS LEARNING
“The goal of a successful Sunday School is changed lives. Everything from the stories and activities, to the music, is designed to help teachers and leaders layer God’s truth into a person’s life in a life-transforming way. It leads people to Jesus. The Bible is one story—the story of Jesus. We believe that every story in the Bible points to Jesus. So should Sunday School. Because nothing is more important than a person’s relationship with Jesus.”
Classic City Youth exists to teach kids to read the Bible for themselves, understand and experience the spirit of true prayer and worship, and build relationships with people who have genuine relationships with the Lord. We hope to do this through creating a fun and safe community in which students can experience growth with others their own age, as well as discipleship with dedicated, loving, Christ-centered leaders. CCYouth is led by our Youth & Young Adults Pastor, Josh Rogers, and a group of amazing college and young adult volunteers.
A typical week consists of youth gathering on Sundays, mid-week small discipleship groups, and sometimes fun weekend activities for our students and their friends!
Sunday youth group is at our Ministry Center directly after the Sunday service until 2 PM, which is within walking distance of our sanctuary for Sunday services. We have lunch, play some games, and spend time in a Bible study and prayer. The Bible study consist of rereading the scriptures from the church service and unpacking the message from the sermon. This allows the youth a chance to discuss, process, and apply the message to their lives in a good environment with their peers and within the loving guidance of the young adult leaders.
Throughout the week we have various Cell Groups that consist of two Adult Volunteer Leaders and a handful of youth of the same demographic, like age and gender. These groups are flexible and attempt to work well with the kids and families' schedules and locations. The time spent together include fun social time, accountability and prayer, and a Bible study. Prior semesters we have done studies on The Sermon on the Mount, the Book of James, parables of Jesus, and the Gospel of Mark to name a few.
Please join us our Youth Family Kickoff on Sunday, August 25th to learn more about our Youth Ministry. RSVP HERE.
Learn more, sign up, and provide availability for your middle or high schooler to get plugged in a Youth Cell Group here.
CLASSIC CITY WOMEN
The Amplified version of John 16:33 states,
“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you].
The women at Classic City Church long to be and see women who live undaunted for Christ Jesus; to be women who are fearless, not bound, daunted, or subdued by fear; but enabled, empowered, encouraged, and enveloped by the love of God.
Our prayer is to Honor the Greatness of Christ Jesus by growing spiritually, living authentically, and participating in His purposes. All by the grace of our loving God.
We believe that as women go through the journey of life in Christ closely connected to one another, their walks will be enriched and enhanced. “There is no doubt that friendship is a strategic mechanism that God uses to encourage us, sharpen us, and teach us.” (Priscilla Shirer's forward in Friendships of Women by Dee Brestin)
Classic City Church desires to facilitate women’s relationships inter-generationally through small group gatherings, fellowship events, service/outreach opportunities, mentoring, and discipling.
Our Women’s Servant Ministry Team is led by the Women’s Pastor, Lisa Mason, along with multi-generational women who love Jesus and others.
For more information, contact Lisa Mason at email@example.com.
In Jesus' last words on Earth he told his disciples, “All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations... teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
We take this charge seriously. It is crucial all believers first become disciples and then pursue "making disciples." Our desire is that men will seek to develop the heart, mind, and skills to make this ideal a reality in their lives.
We seek to do this by:
Pairing a spiritually mature man with another who wants to grow
Growing in their faith and relationship with Jesus Christ through modeling a Spirit-led life and studying God’s Word
Preparing and training the next generation of Disciple-makers to go invest in discipleship
At Classic City Church, we believe small groups are a pivotal part of spiritual growth! Our groups exist to help us actualize the church mission statement to honor the greatness of Jesus Christ by growing spiritually, living authentically, and participating in His purposes. We offer several studies where similar-staged individuals can meet together to study God's word and develop Christ-centered friendships.
Please take the time to review our small group opportunities, and express your interest via one of the methods described.
The worship team at Classic City Church aims to serve the church by pursuing authenticity and excellence in music and arts. We believe that God responds to our humility and loves to use those who are humbled before Him. We aim to create a culture of worship that points outwards and upwards, using our gifts to help shepherd the church into the throne room of God through worship.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT MINISTRY
DID YOU KNOW?
Thousands of international students come to UGA to study every year.
The majority of these students come from countries within the 10/40 Window, where there is limited exposure to the Gospel.
The majority will also never be invited into the home of a local family or a church while studying in America.
Only 1 in 4 of these students will be invited to visit an American home during their 4-5 year stay in Athens.
As a ministry, we will seek to show these students the love of Christ through hospitality and friendship during their time in America.
JOIN CLASSIC CITY CHURCH’S INTERNATIONAL STUDENT MINISTRY TEAM!
Contact ISM@classiccity.org for more information or to get involved!
Change the world
Each week we receive an offering called "Change the World" to support missions financially. We focus on supporting ministry in five areas: evangelistic ministries to young people in Athens, outreach to the poor in our community, care for the fatherless, ministry to the nation of Liberia, and supporting full-time missionaries who arise from our church body.
Our Outreach Team has been serving our amazing neighbors in Rocksprings since summer 2018. From uniform and turkey drives to cookouts and ladies’ gatherings, we seek to show our community the love of Christ as we learn from and love one another. To sign up to serve with the Outreach Team, contact Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
