YOUTH

Here at Central UMC, we strive to provide a welcoming environment where students can find themselves and find God together. Through fellowship, discipleship, and mission opportunities, we will grow with one another as we live out and study the teachings of Christ. Jump in anytime, you are always welcome! Be sure to check out our Youth Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Central-Youth-Shelby-2226774027375814/

Sunday School

Youth Common Area, 3rd Floor Sanctuary Building. Youth long for leaders to guide and encourage them.  As they study the early kings of the Hebrew faith, they will understand what God looks for in leadership… and how they can be faithful and faith-filled leaders.

Sunday Night Hangs

Youth fellowship meets on Sunday nights from 5:30-7:00 pm. The night begins with dinner, activities and games progressing to worship, Bible Study, and small groups. We do tons of different activities on Sunday nights throughout the year, including: Bible Study, Game Nights, Youth Rallies, Holiday Parties, and/or Mission Activities.

Midweek Check-In

Join us at Lilly Bean Coffee each Wednesday from 4-4:45pm to do homework, chat, catch up, or just be together.

 

Confirmation Sunday

Congratulations to Liam, Bretta, Sadie, Ella, Maggie, and Hunter for taking a new step in their faith through Confirmation this past Sunday! CUMC, let’s be true to our vows and do our part to walk their journeys with them.

Outdoor Small Group Gatherings

Thank you to everyone who participated in our youth service day at Camp Tekoa Foothills! It was muddy and wet, but we enjoyed spending the afternoon together and we are able to clear out the bamboo forest and make space for new campsites.

Family Day Camp

As you can see, we had an awesome time axe throwing, hiking, boating, and just enjoying our time together at Camp Tekoa Foothills. Many thank yous to all who participated, especially Tekoa Foothills for letting us share their wonderful space. If you weren’t able to join us, stay in the loop for many more family opportunities to come!
