youth ministry aT CHRIST UMC

I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young will see visions. Your elders will dream dreams.

-Acts 2:17

Teenagers are the keepers of the holy fire. Their youthful quest for passion and things worth dying for is a prophetic message to the church: be alive! At Christ UMC, we are creating a youth ministry where teenagers grow in faith and community, while discovering in Christ a love worth living for!

Here's what we do:

Youth Cafe - Weekly Sundays @ 9:00AM - Online via Zoom

Games, food, talking about faith! 

Thursday Hang - Weekly Thursdays @ 6:00PM

Informal hangout time at the church, bring homework, video games, whatever. There might be pizza. 

Party or Serve - Monthly activities, focused on either pure hangout and fun, or mission and helping others! 

Annual Events - Winter Retreat, Summer Camp, Mission Trips, and International Youth Conferences! Stay up to date with us on social media and our church's weekly newsletter called the "What's Happening". You can sign up at the link below.
