The Spot Student Ministry is the place on Sunday afternoons for middle and high school students to grow have a blast, and have their lives changed. We all have “spots” that make up our messed-up lives. The Spot is all about imperfect people having the chance to know a perfect God.

At The Spot, we believe everything can change when we spot Jesus in the middle of our mess and respond to him. This is how The Spot empowers the next generation.  “The Spot” is about coming as you are. If you’ve been in church every Sunday since your birth or if you’ve never stepped through the doors of a church in your life (or anywhere in between), The Spot is still your spot.

See you at “The Spot” this Sunday, 3-5pm.

We’ve saved a spot for you.

Follow us on Instagram @thespotstudents for updates or check back here frequently for special occasions, events, and the occasional update about a week when The Spot will not meet.

Christ UMC Youth Ministry serves to help the Lord build strong Christian foundations in young people by presenting opportunities
for youth to be present and active in the life of the church, by creating safe spaces for young people to study and engage in Biblical scripture, and by empowering young people to proclaim their love of God to the community through action and word.
