Welcome to CUC Youth! We are so excited to have you. Check back on this page for opportunities to meet, play games, serve the community, and learn. The Columbine United Church youth ministry is a community for 6th-12th graders based on love of God, love of each other, and love of self. It is a safe place for meaningful connection and spiritual growth through service, learning, discovery, and, of course, fun activities.

ABOUT CUC YOUTH
The Youth Ministry of Columbine United Church strives to uphold these four values:
Love- Love of God, love of neighbor, and love of self guides everything we do as a youth group. At the CUC youth group, we strive to foster an inclusive and welcoming environment based on acceptance, mutual respect, kindness, and service to others.
Connection- Meaningful connections drive our youth group as we build opportunities to be involved in the life of the church, the traditions of the Christian community. Not only are the youth of CUC building meaningful connections with their peers, but the adults of the church are investing in teaching, guiding, and loving the youth.
Safety- Safety at the CUC youth group is one of our top priorities. All of our volunteer and staff leaders undergo training, background checks, and supervision. In addition to the physical safety of our students, the youth are always welcome to speak their mind, share their stories, and ask hard questions.
Growth- Finally, we strive to encourage the students in their journey of faith knowing that it is a lifelong journey. We provide opportunities for students to grow in service, mission trips, learning, and purposeful reflection.
ABOUT THE SPACE
Youth programming takes place in our newly reconstructed youth area. The room is large, bright, and engaging, with plenty of natural light and space to hang out. At CUC, your kids will feel like they have a place where they really belong, that in turn belongs to them.
