BLOWOUT for 6th-8th grade students

Wednesdays, 6-7:30pm (September-March)

BLOWOUT is a fun, energetic, large-group experience for students from area schools.  They gather in the youth center for group games, great music, an inspiring message, and small-group time.  Invite your friends.

SUNDAY SCHOOL for 6th-12th grade students

Sundays, 9am and 10:30am (September-May)

Sunday School is the place where students are invited to grab a cup of hot chocolate and gather in the youth center where they develop a deeper faith built on the foundation of Jesus Christ and maintained through knowledge, conviction, and deep-rooted assurance.

YOUTH GROUP for 9th-12th grade students

Join us on the 3rd and 5th Sundays of each month from 6-7:30pm (September-April).  Small groups (by gender and grade level) meet the other Sundays of the month.

Youth group is always focused on building Christian community, deepening faith, and exploring transformed living.


SMALL GROUPS for 9th-12th grade students

Sundays (first, second, and fourth), 6-7:30pm (September-April)

Students meet in grade and gender-based groups.  Because we all long for the place “where everybody knows your name,” the clear priority of small groups is shared life.


Each year, in addition to regular programming, there are retreats and/or service opportunities that build on and go beyond the weekly routines.  These are designed to help students “retreat and refocus,” providing a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.  There are various opportunities throughout the year to give back and put faith into action for the sake of others, including domestic and international mission trips during the summer months.

For more information about youth programs, contact Doris Van Kooten, dorisvk@christmemorial.org or 616-796-3342.
