Christ the King Youth Ministry
To Hear the Gospel and Make a Difference

How do we become Saints of the Next Millennium?

Youth Ministry at Christ the King has two goals. First, give teens the tools and knowledge to become disciples of Christ and servants of the Church. The second, to offer opportunities for them use those tools to be the Church every day forward. By accomplishing this we show the young church what it means to have a Catholic identity? This is how you become the saints of the next millennium, not only learning about your faith, but living it every day forward.

At Christ the King we aspire to be the truest embodiment of our parish mission statement … to hear the Gospel and make a difference.

Support Youth Ministry

Open to 7th & 8th grade youth

Learning about your faith can be boring.  Why do we study prayer, the sacraments, and Mass?  Maybe it's boring because we don't understand nature of God.  In Explorers we take the mechanics out of our faith and really focus on who God is and how he wants to interact with us.   Our relationship with him is our greatest gift and understanding who he is helps us nourish and grow the love between us.
