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 Home.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.

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.  Classes hvae begun for 2018-2019.
