Christ Youth student ministry (Grades 7-12)

Our student ministry, for students in grades 7 through 12, allows students to connect through weekly Youth Group gatherings, music opportunities, and small groups. In addition to our weekly gatherings, our youth participate in seasonal retreats and lock-ins, as well as mission trips and projects including our Music & Mission Trip, South Carolina Mission Trip, and Junior High Mission Experience. For more information, please contact Katey Blaylock, Director of Youth Ministries. 

Youth Group | Sundays, 6–7:30, Gym

Our youth group meets weekly during the school year in the Gym for a small snack supper ($3) before splitting into junior (grades 7-8) and senior (grades 9-12) high groups. A team of adult leaders works directly with the youth to develop relationships with each other and with Christ. The UMYF program is a key outreach arm of the church as it invites and welcomes youth from all, or no, religious affiliations.

Youth Choir | Rehearses Sundays, 5–6pm, Gym

Our Youth Choir (grades 7-12) sings monthly in Sunday worship services, as well as in special services throughout the year, including the Candlelight Service of Lessons and Carols and Youth Sunday. The choir also travels each summer on a Music and Mission Trip.

YMAC (Youth in Music and Arts at Church) | Rehearses Sundays, 4–5pm

Various sessions throughout the year last 5-6 weeks and include offerings such as handbells, drama, dance, instrumental music, praise band, visual arts, and media production. For current opportunities, contact Cathy West
