C3Y (Central Christian Church Youth) is a community. We're a brotherhood and sisterhood, a family together. We aren't a self-serve station, for people to come and go without noticing anyone or anything else but their own needs. We lift one another up when we fall, cheer for each other when we struggle, and celebrate together as we press on and see God at work.
C3Y is cross-centered. Apart from what God does for us and in us and through us, we can do nothing. Everything focuses on the climax of God's work for us through Jesus on the cross! We sing about it, pray because of it, and live out of it.
C3Y is intentional. We study what God reveals about Himself in the Bible, knowing that it's hard work, and knowing that it pays off. We make room for God to interrupt our schedules, the common flow of life in Seymour, because He's worth our attention and greater than any other life goal. Without intentional effort, we'll be swallowed up by the weeds that grow up around us: weeds of everyday living without God, the busyness and distractions of life in this world that keep us from Him.
C3Y is authentic. Many people put up a shield, a mask, a front, to protect others from seeing what's really inside. We work at breaking these barriers down, trusting in God Who loves us in our mess and seeking His help among His people.
C3Y is lasting. What we begin here has enduring power to send us into life beyond high school: the university, the workplace, the military, wherever. We establish patterns, habits, a view of the world that glorifies God, seeks joy in Him, and keeps us close to Him. This is our goal, for our middle school and high school years, and for all of life.
CONNECT WITH C3Y.
We would love to help you get connected with our community, no matter when in the year, no matter where you are in middle school or high school. Our main meetings are Wednesday nights, from 6-8pm, at the Youth House next door to the church (1458 W 2nd Street). We focus our studies on Wednesdays in small groups: MS Men (with Wil Smith), MS Women (with Brandi Smith and Linda Higginbotham), HS Men (with Brent Goben) and HS Women. To learn more about what we're studying, or to make first contact and get connected, please email us or just drop by on a Wednesday at 6. We also get together on Sunday mornings at the Youth House from 10:30–11:30 to review what we learned in church and get better at studying God's Word.
