CUC Youth

Our teenagers are a dynamic expression of CUC’s energy and progressive values. We are creating an environment where our teenagers are awakening to the presence of God within themselves, their peers, and the world!

We strive for the following to guide us in designing meaningful experiences for youth in grades 6-12:

  • To awaken the youth to God’s presence
  • To equip the youth to live life and make choices based on the teachings of Jesus
  • To foster an environment where the youth can realize and pursue their positive qualities
  • To instill a sense of service to others
  • To interweave the youth into the life of the church.

Check out the weekly worship bulletin or CUC’s weekly Eblast for all things youth related!

Youth Opportunities

Worship Participation

Worship Participation is a great way to connect with the larger church community. We have a few rows reserved for Youth at the back of the sanctuary, on the right side. We gather there each Sunday for the 10am worship service.

Sunday Morning Groups

Sunday Youth Groups meet throughout the year from 6-7:30 PM. High School Youth are 9th-12th grades and Middle School Youth are 6th-8th grades. We design this time to be informal and relaxed so that we can disconnect from the stress of the school week and reconnect with our faith and our friends. We play games, worship and talk about ways to live a Christian life as a teenager.

Confirmation classes are held annually for youth 8th grade and older.

Summer Mission Trips

Summer Mission Trips are an awesome way to serve others while growing as a disciple. Separate trips are planned for high school and middle school youth. Destinations are typically announced early in the fall. High Schoolers travel a greater distance, and middle schoolers tend to stay within Colorado, usually within a couple of hours of Denver. Trips are typically a week-long experience, and involve a commitment for group fundraising and reporting back to the congregation on Youth Sunday. Mission Trips are experiences that the youth remember for the rest of their lives!

Volunteer with Youth

If you love junk food, Frisbee, dance parties, best friend drama, homework hives and all the rest of the joy that comes with teenagers, join in the fun as a Youth Ministry volunteer! More than just a chaperone or playground supervisor, we need adults who love to walk alongside youth every week as they sort out all the pressures inside and out and develop a meaningful faith. It’s a rewarding experience like no other!

Please note that a background check is required for all of our volunteers.
