Central City Youth


As we head into the new school year, we want to provide as many opportunities for students to engage with leaders and peers as we can while also providing for everyone’s safety. To that end, we’ll be stepping into a new rhythm as the ministry year kicks off:

Fall Structure & Changes:

Junior High Youth Group has moved to Tuesdays at 4pm on the second and fourth weeks of each month. High School Youth Group has moved to Tuesdays at 6:30pm on the second and fourth weeks of each month.

Our monthly ministry rhythm will follow this schedule:

  • Week 1 – Youth Leaders meet and check in one-on-one with youth.
  • Week 2 – Online Youth Groups
  • Week 3 – Small Group Bible Study (in-person or online)
  • Week 4 – Online Youth Groups
  • Week 5 (when applicable) – Small Group Leader’s Choice


Parent FAQs:

What do these gatherings/check-ins look like?

One-on-One Check-ins
These will happen either in-person or virtually/via phone. We want each kid to feel connected with their leader, and we want them to know that we think of them as more than just ministry projects. The goal is to develop relationships with substance that extend beyond youth group gatherings. As a parent, you can expect that a leader will reach out to you before reaching out to your young one. We may offer to take a walk, drop by with a snack or whatever you’re comfortable with. You, the parent, are the first point of contact in your family, and your comfort level is the barometer our leaders will use in establishing and building relationships with your student(s).

Small Group Bible Study
These will happen once a month. We’ll build small groups based on age and location within the city (Please fill out the contact survey to help facilitate this). These neighborhood groups will be size-capped to ensure we are reasonably safe. We will also have an online option for kids and leaders who aren’t comfortable meeting in-person. Again, this is an option you can make in our survey below.

Online Youth Group
All leaders and students gather via Zoom to catch up, play games, and talk about Jesus. We send out the meeting link each week. Be sure to send us your contact info through the survey, so we can keep you in the loop!
