Youth Ministry

Youth Ministries calls for passion, patience, and faithfulness – pointing out the sacred in the midst of the chaos of adolescence and walking faithfully with young people as they transition from child to young adult. Youth Ministries is a bridging ministry of education, connection, formation, and hopefully, transformation.
Responding to the spiritual needs of teens is about building trusting relationships. FUMC Chula Vista strives to walk with young people on their journeys from childhood to adulthood, recognizing their gifts for ministry, their questions about spirituality, and their desire to make a difference in the world.

Youth Group

Time: Sunday 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Location: Youth Room
Sunday Night is a time to get away from all the pressures and influences of the world, retreating into a place of safety and growth. Sunday Night Youth Group often includes worship, fun and teaching that takes an element of life and applies biblical principles to the issue. Though Youth Group invites students in the 7th-12th grades, Junior High and Senior High are separated for group discussions and small groups.

Bible Study

Time: Wednesday 6:30pm – 7:30pm
Location: Youth Room
Life application is the theme for this gathering where we dig deeper into the Bible focused on helping youth find character building opportunities to assist in their daily lives. Bible studies will vary in topic, sometimes focusing on one book and other times focusing on a theme.
