Be sure to join us Sunday, May 21st at any of our worship services as our youth lead worship and we celebrate our graduates!
Seniors and their families are invited to join their youth ministry family that night from 5-7p in The Rise for a banquet in their honor.
Who we are
KYM (KUMC Youth Ministry) is an engaging, inclusive ministry of Kennesaw United Methodist Church specifically for students in 6th-12th grades.
KYM seeks to equip parents to help us provide opportunities, events, and atmospheres where middle and high school students learn who God is, who they are, and how that identity shapes their lives.
Join our KUMC family at one of our Worship Services at 8:30, 9:45, or 11:00 a.m. We have a Youth Gathering Time beginning at 9:45a in The Rise*, and our middle and high school Sunday School classes meet from 10:00-10:45a and 11:00-noon.
All 6th-12th grade students are invited to our youth-specific Sunday afternoon event: Sunday Night Live. We meet from 4:30-7 in the CAC (Christian Activities Center) for fellowship, encouragement, and Life Groups.
Here’s what a typical Sunday evening looks like:
4:30 – Gathering Games in the CAC
4:45 – Snack Supper (tacos, pizza, breakfast, etc.)
5:15 – Interactive / Teambuilding Games
6 – Life Groups (based on gender and grade. Open to everyone!)
High Schoolers Only: Meet us at the Chick-fil-A on Hwy. 41 in Acworth for Bible Study every Tuesday morning from 7:00-7:40a. Start your day with a free chicken biscuit and the Word of God!
Worship on Wednesdays (WOW) is a weekly Bible study for youth from 6:30-8p in The Rise*. We believe questions are essential, not detrimental to our faith, so we encourage all questions, doubts, and discussion. Our goal isn’t to teach students what to think but how to think, which allows them to explore Christianity, study Scripture, and build theology for now and beyond.
Currently we’re working our way chronologically through the Bible beginning in Genesis. What does David have to do with driving? What does Jonah have to do with geometry? What does Solomon have to do with Shakespeare? Join us Wednesdays to find out!
Our goal is to feel the presence of God in fresh, authentic ways. We’d love to see YOU there!
If you have any questions, please email our youth minister, Nikki Hobus: nikki (at) kennesawumc.org.
