* All of our programs have been adjusted to be online in response to COVID-19. To connect with these groups please contact Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministries, Robbie Frederiksen, at [email protected]*
Peer support has never been more important than right now. Teens (6th-12th graders) are welcome to join our group on Sunday nights from 5:30pm to 6:30pm via Zoom (online). During this time, we gather to intentionally check in with one another, share devotion time, and even play games together.
Youth Bible Study
Once a week Central UMC hosts a joint bible study with youth from Los Gatos UMC online. Previous bible knowledge is not necessary as this study is great for youth just starting to explore the scriptures. Each lesson focuses on examining the cultural context in which the text was written with a focus on what the author is attempting to communicate to their audience.
Parent Support Group
With schools closed and all of our teens participating in distance-learning we recognize that tension at home can be mounting and finding ways to stay positive can be difficult. All parents of teenagers are invited to join us on Tuesday nights from 8pm – 8:45pm to simply ‘be’ with other parents who understand what you’re going through.
