Central Youth

Youth Ministry at Central is dedicated to meeting all youth right where they are, both in life, and in their spiritual journey. We are dedicated to forming safe, deep and meaningful relationships with our young people. Our goal is to be a Christian IMG952738 2example going before them to show them the way, be beside them to guide them on their journey, and be behind them to catch them when they fall.

The mission of youth ministry at Central is to be facilitators for all youth to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ through a balanced mix of Christian opportunities and fun experiences. We as Christians are actively trying to become incredibly righteous disciples by loving God, our church, and each other.

Our Youth meet each Sunday morning during the Sunday School hour to reconnect with one another.

During the school year Youth meet on Sunday evenings from 5:00-7:30pm with a meal provided by parents on a rotating/volunteer basis.  Middle Schoolers meet from 5:00-6:00pm.  Everyone enjoys a meal from 6:00-6:30pm.  The High Schoolers meet from 6:30-7:30pm.

This summer Rebecca meets kids at 6:30pm on Wednesday evenings for Fit n' Faith.  The group works out together and shares a devotion.  All kids 6th grade and up are welcome!

Confirmation

In many United Methodist congregations, preparation for confirmation begins when youth enter their middle school years.  The middle school years (6th-8th grades) are when young people begin to move from concrete thinking to abstract thinking and is when many people begin to make lifelong faith decisions.  During these middle school years youth are seeking a sense of belonging.  Belonging to the community of faith is an appropriate response to that developmental task.  (umc.org)

Central offers a formal process with a class leading to the ritual of confirmation for those who choose to receive it and are deemed ready to do so by our pastors.  We begin the confirmation process in sixth and/or  seventh grade based on interest.  Confirmation usually meets each Sunday during the Sunday School hour, attends a retreat and end with confirmation during a special worship service.  If you have questions about confirmation please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
