Youth Ministries

Fifth Sundays are BIG at KUMC. We worship with bluegrass music in all our worship services, serve pancakes to kids and youth at 9:45 Sunday School, and host a church-wide dinner and service project. For details, read below!

This Sunday (April 30) is our next Supper & Service event. The whole church is invited to join us as we enjoy a potluck meal and put together UMCOR Cleaning/Flood Buckets – a project everyone can help with! Games start at 5:00 / Dinner is at 5:30 / Service project is at 6:00. Everyone is welcome! 🙂

Who we are

KYM (KUMC Youth Ministry) is an engaging, inclusive ministry of Kennesaw United Methodist Church specifically for students in 6th-12th grades.

Our Mission

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.



Sunday Mornings

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.

Sunday Nights

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!
