Youth In Action

Youth Ministry



Youth In Action (YIA) is for young people 13 to 25 years old. Centrals YIA focuses on Christian education, building personal spirituality, nourishing relationships, church life, intergenerational activities, and understanding community.

Central United welcomes ALL youth and young adults.  We invite you to be connected with other young people who are exploring their place in the world and learning about God.  

Oh, yeah, we sometimes do fun stuff like bowling or we even spend time painting canvas, just like Picasso.  Don’t know who Picasso is?  Doesn’t matter!  You still get to paint!

Always, we want to put our “faith into action,” in our personal lives and in the community around us.

Our Youth in Action program provides:

    • an opportunity to explore the Bible
    • a place to talk freely about our faith
    • a safe space
    • opportunities for leadership in worship

Some highlights of the YIA special events include:

  • Family Carnival: Our annual carnival with games, prizes, popcorn and a candy guess contest. Such a blast!
  • Christmas Cookies: YIA bake cookies, purchase cookies and the congregation donates cookies, then YIA have a cookie sale.
    The different kinds of cookies and Christmas baking is a wonderful sight with tantalizing aromas! 
  • Morning Service: YIA will be planning and presenting for this year’s Earth Day Sunday Service!
  • Manna Muffins: Once again, YIA bake muffins, purchase muffins and the congregation donate muffins too.
    Then YIA have a muffin sale with a fabulous variety of muffins and cupcakes!
  • Blessed Bagel Brunch: A special lunch that YIA host for the congregation. Serving several types of bagels and tasty toppings!
  • Grab N’ Go Street Lunch: In June, YIA provides a street lunch, outside in front of the church for some of the church’s hungry neighbours.

Summer Activity: This year YIA went to “Activation” – twice!

Mary Landsdell, Youth Ministry Coordinator

As the Youth Ministry Coordinator at Central, I want to always provide opportunities for our children to talk about their faith and to develop the language of love that Jesus used in his ministry.
