YOUTH

— Belonging. Believing. Becoming.

Our Youth Ministry is unique. Students ages 6th to 12th grade experience a God Centered Model for Spiritual Transformation. Through this, our students learn how to connect with God, one another, and within their own hearts. We strive to help each student find their place as we walk alongside them in their faith journey.

Summer 2021 at Camp Loucon 

Camp Loucon (Our KY UMC Camp) is happening this summer! Loucon is working hard on their plans to provide a safe camp environment. The 2021 summer format will reduce the number of available camper spots by about 50%, so the earlier you register the more likely your camper can ensure they can participate. Sign your kids up for much needed outdoor time, new friendships, and a loving team of people to experience God with! Click here for more information and to register. 

Events/Studies

Lenten Kit and Prayer Labyrinth 

We are using a special prayer tool to help us journey through Lent together - a prayer labyrinth. At our Sunday morning and Sunday evening gatherings, we’ll use a printed labyrinth and a journal to center ourselves before each meeting. When you register online for Lent with CCUM Youth, you will receive a special Lenten kit that includes a prayer labyrinth, a journal and a pencil. Register by February 14 and you can pick up your Lenten kits at the church from February 14 through March 2.

 

Sunday Morning Bible Study: The Life of Jesus

Sunday mornings beginning February 21, 10 am on Zoom  See email for Zoom link or email

 Lent is an important time to reflect on the life of Jesus as he enters his last days. Each week we’ll explore who Jesus was, what he said about the ways of God and who he wants us to be as Jesus followers.

 

Sunday Evening Youth: Emerging

Sunday evenings beginning February 21, 6 pm at CCUM (meet at the Student Center Door)

During Lent, we will have a special prayer walk at CCUM which invites us to reflect on who we are and who we are becoming as we journey together. Each week we’ll gather at the church to do a prayer walk together and reflect on a different thing we want to take with us on our Lenten journey. This will be a great time to come together with friends, to pray and to grow closer to God.

For our in-person gatherings, please wear a mask at all times, observe social distancing, dress warmly and bring a chair to sit on!

 

Good Friday Art Project 

For our virtual Good Friday service, we are looking for youth to create art that portrays the readings in our service. These powerful images will accompany the readings in the service. If you are an artist or an aspiring artist or just want to express yourself creatively in this way, please e-mail Chris Hughes, .

Youth Music

Middle and High School Music 

We will be alternating between middle school and high school music every Sunday evening at 5 pm. If the weather is tolerable, we will be meeting in person outdoors at church. Otherwise, we will meet digitally on Zoom. Check your email for more details, or contact   for rehearsal links and other information. We are looking forward to seeing you!
