youth ministry

Several youth piled onto an inner tube sledding down a snowy hill.

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!

Helpful Forms:

  • Medical Authorization Form- All youth need to have a medical authorization form on file before their parents can leave them at youth events. Paper copies are available, as is the electronic form here.
  • Volunteer to Help with Youth- It takes all of us to integrate youth into church life, showing them the diversity, generosity, and joy of the church community. Email if you are interested in helping!
  • Background Check- We run a background check on everyone that serves in our children and youth ministries.  If you would like to serve, here is the form (which must be turned in to the church office or into the youth mailbox in the cabinet by the church's front doors).  If you would be willing to donate $10 to help offset the costs we would much appreciate it.
