We are dedicated to helping teenagers fall in love with Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, in the heart of the Church. Our weekly events include Life Nights or Small Groups on Sundays during the school year, Praise and Worship on Tuesdays year round, two annual retreats, service projects, and our annual trip to a Steubenville Youth Conference. We also sponsor Fuel, a middle school ministry run by high school students; offer special classes and workshops at various times throughout the year; and help parents in their task of raising their children to become lifelong disciples. Watch this page for upcoming events and information about our program.
If you have questions or for more information on Youth Ministry at Christ the King, send an email to John Hoving at email@example.com.

Articles on Teen Technology Use If your child has a smartphone or has been around children who do, they have almost certainly been exposed to suggestive and likely pornographic images. The average age of exposure is now said to be 11 years old. More porn sites are visited each day than Netflix, Amazon, and Twitter combined. Nearly 1/3 of the entire Internet’s bandwidth is used for porn. We need to remain vigilant and work together to help our kids grow into virtuous adults. Too much freedom, as well as too little freedom, can hinder our children’s maturity. Don’t avoid the issue or simply hope for the best. Research the best practices out there and never give up!
CTK Youth Ministry (Life Nights and Small Groups)
Large groups meetings (Life Nights) and small groups meetings are the primary catechetical experiences offered for high school students at Christ the King. These meetings are held during the school year on Sunday nights from 7:00 – 8:30 in the Parish Center (unless otherwise indicated). Watch the bulletin and our Facebook page for special events that may change the time or location of our gatherings.
High School Praise and Worship
These weekly prayer meetings are held every Tuesday from 8:00 – 9:30 p.m. in the Church, with Praise and Worship music, biweekly Adoration and Benediction, prayer ministry, and weekly Confession. Recreation and social time are available before the prayer meeting from 7:00-8:00 pm. This is a great time to meet new people and to hang out with other fun and faith-filled teenagers!
Fuel Middle School Prayer Meetings
Come join us on most second and fourth Mondays of each month from 7:30-8:30 p.m. for Praise and Worship in the Church. Come fuel the fire of God in your life! Middle Schoolers can come as early at 7:00 pm to hang out and play games. Click here for the 2018 Fuel Prayer Meeting Dates.
