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!

Upcoming Events:

  • Sun. May 22 from 5pm to 6:30pm - Alien! - Come play Alien, a game much like Grog except that it doesn't require a dark church building so run around. It will be so much fun!
  • Mon. July 18 to Sat. July 23 - Mid-High Summer Camp at Suttle Lake!  Youth who have finished 5th-11th grade are all invited to come to summer adventure camp together! The ticket price is $545 if we register in May, but we will fund raise and use scholarships/grants so that everyone who wants to go can. Visit this site for more information about camp. We'll work on details!

What We Do:

  • Youth Cafe – On Sundays, we'll meet at 5pm. Specific events will be posted above and on the calendar. 
  • Serving on the Sevens – Monthly service projects on the 7th day of each month, usually from 7pm to 8:30pm. 
  • Annual Events – Winter Retreat, Summer Camp, Mission Trips, and International Youth Conferences!
  • Try New Things! - Please email Crystal with ideas you have about what you think would be cool and could help host.

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. Please click the Spring Event Sign Up Sheet to sign up!
  • 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.  If you would be willing to donate $10 to help offset the costs we would much appreciate it.
