About KYM

We love teenagers and want them to be as supported, encouraged, and taught as thoroughly as possible. That’s why we’re committed not only to providing opportunities for students through our ministry but also to equipping those adults around students for the fun times, tough times, and every time in between. Read more about our commitment to you below.

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 help and equip parents to raise and teenagers to be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.



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!)


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.

Our goal is to feel the presence of God in fresh, authentic ways. We’d love to see YOU there!
