Youth

 

Whether it’s a Sunday morning, a Wednesday night, or a day in between there’s an opportunity for your student to connect with Jesus, adult leaders who love and care for them, and their friends as they study Scripture and learn how it makes a difference in their lives. 

Wednesday Nights: D-Group - resumes September 8

D-Group is our middle school and high school program that combines age appropriate Biblical teaching with relational small groups. Small groups are made up of students of the same grade and gender who meet on Wednesday nights with really amazing adult leaders.

To join a small group, scroll down to forms, and fill out the Small Group Covenant. This enables your child to check in on Wednesdays and ensures your family stays in the loop on all things Youth Ministry throughout the year. 

  • Grades 6th – 9th meet from 5:30pm - 7pm at Christ United (Enter through South Portico.)
  • Grades 10th - 12th students who are already in a small group should check with their small group about meeting time and place. Students looking to join a small group should contact one of our staff.

Sunday Mornings

Sunday School is at 9:30am in the Youth Center.
Join us for worship each Sunday at 10:40am (Bridge) in the Fellowship Hall or 11:00am (Traditions) in the Sanctuary.

We believe that practicing our faith is important, and one great we way we can do that is through service. We have three opportunities for service on Sunday Mornings:

  • Kids Ministry
  • Hospitality
  • Tech Team

We are happy to help train your student. If your student would like to be involved in any of these service opportunities, we would love to help get them connected. Contact J Nelson at (662)574-0900, Katherine Jordan at (601)573-1537, or Lauren McMaster at (662)207-0641.

Confirmation

Many of us who grew up in the Methodist Church went through Confirmation. Moving forward, when you think of Confirmation we want you to think about “Go Ahead.” The goal of “Go Ahead” is to provide your student with an opportunity to encounter Christ and grow in his/her faith. This happens during a student’s 8th or 9th grade year (they choose) by way of attending a retreat in the Fall. The goal of the retreat is to help students identify where they are with their faith in Jesus and decide the next steps in their faith journey.

To be clear, "Go Ahead” and church membership are two separate things. When your child is ready to join the church, he or she can do that at any time. They will just need to go through Discover Christ with the pastors as this is the path for membership for everyone wanting to join Christ United. At the conclusion of Discover Christ your child will have the option of making a public profession of faith in a future worship service, and we hope you will be a part of that. This is a great way to celebrate what Jesus has done in the life of your child and is doing in the life of our congregation. Discover Christ is offered quarterly on Sunday afternoons throughout the year. As soon as more information about the next Discover Christ is available, it will be in our weekly email.

We believe that Baptism is an outward symbol of an inward change. If your student has not been baptized and is ready to make that step in their faith, please email us at   and we will walk with you through the baptism process.
