at Cedar Cross
The Youth Group (6th-12th grade) are currently meeting live at 5:00pm on Zoom every Sunday.
When we resume in person meetings, our schedule is:
Youth meets for Bible Study at 10:00am on Sunday mornings.
The Youth Group meets every Sunday evening from 6:00pm-7:30pm
Led by Youth Ministries Directors Geoff and Katie Albright
Every Sunday the youth of Cedar Cross United Methodist Church (grades 6-12) meet at the church to play games, grow in their faith, and be in fellowship with one another in a safe environment for all. We invite all youth, wherever they may be in their faith journey, to join us for a fun and fulfilling time.
The youth have a dedicated bible study between services. During this 45 minute time, the youth are presented with a topic, devotion, bible verse, bible study or current event and asked to discuss it, and how it is relevant in their lives and in the context of the Christian faith.
The youth of Cedar Cross participate in 3 retreats a year. Cedar Cross offers scholarships to assist in the cost of these events; they are as follows:
SUMYT: This event is held in march at the Indianola camp in Indianola, WA. This event has a different theme every year and features speakers, small group, and local church time.
Fall Retreat: This event is traditionally held at Camp Indianola in November. This retreat is open to grades 6-12 and also features speakers, small group, large group and local church activities.
Youth Convocation (CONVO): CONVO is the largest Methodist retreat in the Pacific Northwest. Youth from all over the PNW go to the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma Washington over Memorial Day weekend for several days of inspiring talks, activities and fellowship.
Summer Mission Project
The youth of Cedar Cross United Methodist Church do an annual summer mission project (usually in late August). This event changes annually, but is usually located in Washington state. In the past we have gone to Toppenish, Moses Lake, or Nooksack. The youth have done everything from teaching Bible School, to work projects, to school supply drives.
Currently all in-person events are cancelled as Cedar Cross protects our membership during the pandemic. If you would like to participate in virtual programs, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
