Youth

Growing together.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

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! We meet every Sunday for Sunday School at 9am and for Sunday Night Hangs at 5:30pm. Crossfire Youth Choir meets every Sunday at 4:30pm. We also have Confirmation for 7th and 8th graders during the school year. We are currently enjoying a summer break but we'll be back in September!

December 30 through January 1.
If your youth would like to attend, contact Karin Cook at ktcook7@bellsouth.net for details.
Space is limited, so please make plans now.
