youth 2019

july 9-15, 2019

This summer Christ United Methodist Church will be taking our teenagers to YOUTH 2019 in Kansas City, MO, the largest gathering of United Methodist teenagers in existence! YOUTH 2019 is a five day conference that brings together the best Christian speakers, bands, and talent with thousands of youth from all around the nation for what is sure to be a life-changing event. It’s the event of a life time, and we do not want your teen to miss out!

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

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. 


PartyorSeve - 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 the social medias and our church's weekly email, the "What's Happening"! (link below)
