The Youth gather each week and work on developing relationships with God and each other. We do that through a variety of activities that incorporate fellowship, service, Bible study, leadership training, and group building. We feel that focusing on these relationships allows students to feel connected to their peers and the congregation. It also reminds them that they are an important part of this faith community. Friends are always welcome to join us in youth group.
Christ the King teens are very involved in service to others, both locally and globally. Among other activities they have done is past years are the Southern Tier AIDS Program Walk and the CHOW Hunger Walk, serving meals at a local soup kitchen, spending time with residents at local nursing homes, washing cars to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis research, and participating in the 30 Hour Famine to fight world hunger.
In July of 2015, CTK youth and adults attended the ELCA national gathering in Detroit with 30,000 other Lutheran youths from around the country. It was an amazing experience and we all learned about being the church together.Work Camp
is a summer highlight. A group of teens (and adults) travel to other areas (like Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio or Ontario, Canada) where they join with church groups from across the US to do home repairs for the elderly and disabled. The week also includes lively large-group gatherings and time off for recreation.
