Youth Ministry at Christ the King

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.

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!
