Children and Youth

We value the children and youth of our church, and we are committed to building sustainable children and youth ministries that are going to have a deep impact on our church and local community.

Summer Christian Basketball Camp – Our friends and neighbors at Point Washington United Methodist Church are hosting a Summer Basketball Camp Monday, July 29 – Thursday, August 1, 2019 for boys and girls age 8-15. This basketball is a mission of Point Washington UMC to provide local youth with the opportunity to learn more about basketball in a Christian environment.  The camp will be held at the Pt. Washington Family Life Center from 9am – 3pm Monday, July 29 – Thursday, August 1, 2019. The cost is only $30/player and includes lunch each day. Instructors will include ex-college players, local coaches, and high school players, as well as some current college players. Players of all skill levels are welcome.

Youth and Families Program Development

Ministry Architects, a church consulting organization, visited our church and listened to our needs to help us build a better Children and Youth Ministry.  We thank you for your involvement.

Leslie Manning presented the results of these discussions and her recommendations on August 25 and you may read the full report by clicking Ministry Architects Report August 25, 2018.

During the September Vestry Meeting, Christ the King agreed to engage Ministry Architects for Infrastructure Development – click to see the Youth Infrastructure Ministry Architects Contract

The Youth Cohort is actively working with Ministry Architects to define our programs and is increasing our scheduling of Youth Grade 6-12 events – please contact Denise Greene if you’d like to participate or have ideas for these events.

In addition, the Vestry made a strategic commitment to provide Childcare for all events at the Church where not having it would be a barrier to your participation, or where the intended audience might be better served.  Please help us know when to cover all appropriate events.
