Youth Ministry

Welcome to Union's Youth Ministry!

Our desire is to create a community where youth feel known, accepted, and cared for as they grow into mature followers of Jesus Christ. Whether you’ve been raised in church or if this is your first time visiting Union Church, we hope this can be a place where you can learn more about God, develop your faith and walk hand in hand with those just like you.

We have a variety of opportunities and events for youth (11-18 years old). Details are available below, and if you have any questions please email us at  .


Youth Services 
Union's Youth meet on Friday nights, Sunday mornings, and Wednesday evenings for fellowship and learning more about the Christian faith. It's a great way for students to make new friends, learn more about God's love for them, and find a safe and fun place to just be themselves.

Youth Services

Friday Nights

The purpose of Friday Youth is to learn more about the Christian faith while building relationships with other youth and adult leaders. We're going through the Just 10 Series from J.John, and taking a new and refreshing look at the 10 Commandments. If you have been looking for a deep dive into one of God's most important covenants with his people, look no further! We'll meet at Union Church. 


Juniors (ages 11-13) 
will join from 6:00pm - 8:00pm with dinner until 9:00pm
Seniors (ages 14-18) will have dinner from 6:00pm - 7:00pm and lesson from 7:00pm - 9:00pm with time to hang out afterwards. 

Sunday Mornings
The aim of our Sunday gathering is to strengthen students' knowledge of the Bible and develop them into mature disciples of Jesus Christ. We've been meeting at Pastor Michele's home at 11:15am. Juniors have begun a new series on Ephesians, while seniors are the studying the book of Revelation - and all of the challenges it faces us with! Please contact Hunter if you have questions. Note that this Sunday, 12 September, Youth are meeting in the Union Church sanctuary for the 11:15am service! Let Hunter know if you can make it! 

Wednesday Evenings
We are continuing our new "Network" study. It gives us a look into the spiritual gifts God has given us and how we can better use them to build His kingdom! We will meet at the Union Church Youth Room at 6:00pm and dismiss everyone by 8:00pm. 

Mission Trips

Most years, youth have the opportunity to share Christ's love through their actions on an international missions trip in the Spring and Fall! With the prospect of a vaccine for COVID-19, we hope to start taking missions trips again in 2022. For upcoming trip info, check out our upcoming events or email us!

Baptism & Confirmation

This programme is open to youth between 12 to 17 years old, and is supervised by the Youth Director of Union Church. Below are FAQs that will help you understand this programme better.

What should I expect from the Youth Confirmation programme?
The Confirmation programme is a year-long programme committed to teaching youth aged 12 and older the essentials of what it means to live their life in Christ. It is a meaningful opportunity to experience spiritual formation and forge deeper relationships inside and outside church.

Do we have to confirm once we enrol in the programme?
No. Youth who enrol are called ‘candidates’ and do not have to pledge that they will be confirmed at the end of the year. The programme is an exploration of the Christian faith that should lead to an informed and personal decision from the youth whether to confirm their faith in Christ or not.

What is the difference between Confirmation and Teen Baptism?
Youth who have already been baptised will do confirmation, while youth who have not been baptised will do ‘youth baptism’ (which has the same value as an adult baptism). But the programme is the same!

How can I enrol?
As you can see on the Confirmation Infographic, the process for confirmation is simple. You first need to register by sending an email to  . We will then pair the candidate with a mentor, who will meet on a regular basis with him/her. At the end of the year (in May) we do an awesome spiritual retreat. We do require participation in the retreat - you won't regret it!
