CUMC youth are active in a variety of activities ranging from Community Outreach to Introspective/Informative Outings, Missions, and just plain Fun. We gather regularly on Sunday evenings – a great time to connect with each other before a new week – but other activities happen at a variety of times. Join us!
- JYF – Junior Youth Fellowship (grades 6-8) meets Sundays at 4:45 pm in the youth lounge on the lower level.
- SYF – Senior Youth Fellowship (grades 9-12) meets Sundays at 7:15 pm in the youth lounge on the lower level.
RISE is our summer mission trip for Senior High Youth and many have said it’s the best week of the year! Of course a lot of fun is had during the fundraisers throughout the year too: car wash, Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, Sticky Bun sales, Open Mic & Potato Bar, Pizza Night… To learn more about the program and to read about our recent trip, click here:
Action Against Hunger
September 30, 2018 CUMC youth will join with people throughout Northern NJ for Action Against Hunger. We will be running a food drive at the King’s in Chatham hoping to collect over 700 lbs. of food (cash too!) for the Interfaith Food Pantry. Stop by and support us!
Congratulations & Thank You!! Together our team earned over $1,200!! Last October, CUMC Youth joined together with 1000 walkers to raise funds for the Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center and increase understanding about the problems of hunger and homelessness in our community. We assumed the identities of composite Soup Kitchen guests and tracked their stories through cards handed out at story stations during the walk.
Whether it’s Apples to Apples, Telestrations, Hearts… this is always a good night to bring friends for fun and fellowship in Rodda Hall.
Through the Giving Tree we inspire the congregation to donate toys and clothes to kids in need at Christmas time.
A favorite of the Christmas season: caroling to shut-ins…and sometimes friends and neighbors too!
