The Youth Ministry at Christ United Methodist Church is called Christ Youth. Christ Youth Ministry offers a variety of programs for students in 7th-12th grade. Whether the student is learning about Christ for the first time or has had a relationship with Jesus for years, Christ Youth will equip the student to say ‘YES’ to Jesus in every area of their life. 

Sunday Mornings, 10:15-10:50am 

Students are invited to participate in a time of learning and small group discussion on various stories found in the Bible. We seek to teach the Bible in a way that engages students and helps them remember it.


-Meets in Memorial Hall-Room 13

Sunday Evenings, 5-7pm

This is our weekly, large group program that is geared just for students in grades 7th-12th. Students can come expecting a fun, laid back atmosphere where they will enjoy playing games, eating dinner, participating in worship, and listening to a message. All of our programs are open to new students; however, if you are a first time visitor, Club Whatever Youth Group is a great introductory program.
