About KYM


Don’t miss out on our summer mission opportunity: Dalton Area Project! We’ll stay in Dalton First United Methodist Church as we work on sites throughout the city. Most projects will be physical and construction based (building wheelchair ramps, painting, etc.), and we’ll worship and have free time and youth group time each afternoon and evening. It’s a wonderful, fun, challenging week, and we hope you’ll join us! Open to all current youth students.

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!
