Our Community‎ > ‎


The Christian Community Youth Group is an active part of the community and meets twice a month, often on Friday nights. Here, teens 14 to 18 years old, will find friends, fun, and worthwhile activities that stretch them as human beings while learning to engage and live fully in the world.  
For information, or to join the Christian Community Youth Group of Philadelphia, contact Rev. Nora Minassian.

Hillsdale, NY for ages 14-19 year olds. Click here to register

Youth conferences in the Christian Community offer teenagers and young adults a rare, but essential opportunity to come together around the big questions of life, and to do something about them.

Our mission is to discover and serve our world,
engage and transform it;
to search for truth and live it;
to discover beauty and reveal it;
to ignite the fire for the good and do it!

Congregational and regional youth groups meet at regular intervals, offering further opportunities for young people to come together. Learn more at christiancommunityyouth.com

Children & Youth Summer Camps 
The Christian Community has been hosting Children’s Camps in North America for over 50 years. There are and have been camps in Ontario, Canada, on the East Coast, Midwest and in Colorado and California. Each camp has its own character connected with its setting, staff and duration of the camp. The intention is to bring children out of an urban environment into nature to experience the world in new and healthy ways. The strong daily and weekly rhythms, the caring interest of counsellors, the singing, the stories, the crafts, the wide-ranging activities carry the children through the two-three weeks of camp. Children are divided according to age and gender and will spend the whole camp together with their group. Each group has a counsellor (or two) who will be with their group continuously, eating, sleeping and doing activities.

Children from our Devon, PA congregation typcially attend camp in Maine. Camp Director: Rev. Carol Kelly carolkelly.cc@gmail.com
