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.”
Kids’ Summer camps
This summer we will be hosting our church’s VBS at the Ministry Center the week of July 15-18th!
Additionally, we will also host a Kids Camp outreach in the Rocksprings neighborhood from July 22-25!
We would love you to join us at either of these! You can sign up your children or sign up as a volunteer by following these links:
Please contact our Children’s Pastor Mark Murphy if you have any questions.
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 participate in mentor relationships with dedicated, loving, Christ-centered leaders. Our group is led by the Youth Pastor, Josh Rogers, and a group of amazing college student and young adult volunteers.
A typical week consists of youth gathering on Sundays, mid-week small groups/Bible studies, 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 2pm, 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 2 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.
If you or your family are interested in joining a Cell Group you can fill out THIS FORM to provide helpful information about your family and schedule to help us find or form a group for y'all.

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 bygrowing 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 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)
Classic City Church desires to facilitate women’s relationships inter-generationally through small group gatherings, fellowship events, mentoring and discipling.
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:
Establishing a vision and heart for discipleship
Modeling a strategy for descipleship
Developing discipleship skills (helping others grow in faith and practice)
Challenging and evaluating individual efforts in discipleship
If this challenge interests you, contact Lee Mason at Lee@classiccity.org
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.
Many of our small groups take a break during the summer, so we have a limited selection from June to August. However, more will be launching in September!
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
