Ministry for Youth at The United Church

About Youth Ministries at The United Church

At the United Church we believe that the youth are not only the church of tomorrow, but also the church of today. We offer many opportunities for our youth to grow closer to God while also connecting with their church family. Our youth ministries include, weekly youth group called The Cause, Sunday School, Group Workcamp mission trips, service opportunities, game nights, and retreats and conferences.

The Cause

The Cause is our weekly high school youth program. Students gather to worship, learn, eat and fellowship.

High School Missions

One way our students live out their faith is serving on mission trips. During this life-changing experience students and adult leaders share God’s love by meeting the physical needs of the people they have the opportunity to serve.

Retreats and Conferences

Our students attend retreats and conferences throughout the year to pause and reconnect with God and each other. These events foster both personal and community growth for our students.

Who We are at The United Church

The United Church is a strong community of Christians who seek to glorify God.
Our mission is, "That All Might Know, Love, and Follow The Lord Jesus Christ as Their Personal Lord and Savior."
We seek to do this in a number of ways:


We worship the Triune God in Spirit and Truth (John 4:24). Worship involves submitting ourselves to God as the Spirit empowers us.


We must grow in our faith, training ourselves to distinguish good from evil. (Hebrews 5:11-6:2, 1 Peter 2:2, 1 Corinthians 3:1-3)


Jesus sends his followers out on mission for God. We must carefully discern how God might call us to invite others into His Kingdom. (Luke 10:1-20, John 20:21)


As a Christian family, we must bear one another's burdens (Galatians 6:2). Walking alongside each other to meet spiritual and physical needs is at the center of who we are.
