Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Proverbs 22:6

We believe the home is the primary place for spiritual nurture of children. Parents are called by God to train up children in the way of the Lord, in Christ’s way, truth and life. The local church is also called by God to assist parents in the holy adventure of raising children in the faith. At Cannon Beach Community Church, we begin training children from birth, through our nursery ministry, our primary and intermediate ministry of Sunday school, on through youth and young-adult approaches to spiritual formation. We are currently searching for a person to fill a part-time Church Staff position, our Children’s Ministry Director. Please read the Position Description and if interested, complete the Position Application. We are looking to fill this position by March 1, 2019, and are now receiving applications. Please print off the Application, and mail to Community Church (P.O. Box 37, Cannon Beach, OR 97110, C/O Pastor David Robinson; or hand deliver to Community Church, located at 132 E. Washington).

We welcome you and your children into our Child/Youth ministries, confident you will find spiritual training in the way of the Lord within this congregation. Consider picking up a copy of Pastor David Robinson’s book on family spiritual formation, The Busy Family’s Guide to Spirituality.

Youth & Young Life

For over three decades, Cannon Beach Community Church has partnered with North Coast Young Life to reach out to youth in our community with the good news of Jesus Christ. Over this time, thousands of kids have had the opportunity to meet Jesus Christ and begin walking with the Lord. Cannon Beach Community Church supports North Coast Young Life through our giving, our praying, through volunteer leaders, through adults who serve on the Adult Committee.

We also support North Young Life through participation in annual fund-raising efforts to help fund this local mission. The mission of North Coast Young Life is simple: that every adolescent in the North Coast area will have the opportunity to meet Jesus Christ and follow Him. For more information about North Coast Young Life, including our ministry to Middle School kids (Wyldlife) or our ministry to High School kids (Young Life), see our local mission service page.
