Youth Ministry

Margaret Frazier

Welcome to Colonial Heights Youth Ministry!

We invite you to join us as we seek to welcome all youth (Grades 6-12) to embrace a holy curiosity and engage in a life of Christian fellowship-- that Paul calls “the life that really is life.” (1 Timothy 6:19)  For the most up to date information about youth activities at Colonial Heights UMC, please follow us on Instagram and Facebook @YouthCHUMC.


Weekly we meet for bible study, fellowship, and discipleship:

Sunday School, 10-11 AM
For Grades 6-12
Located in the Ministry Center Youth Room, Second Floor

A small group bound by a covenant to pray together and for each other, we ask each week “how is it with your soul?” Join us for a time of sharing and fellowship.

Wednesday Youth Fellowship, 6-7:30 PM
For Grades 6-12
Located in the Ministry Center Youth Room, Second Floor

This is a high energy evening of fun, fellowship, praise, and devotions designed with you in mind!  Laugh till it hurts, enjoy skits, games, and devotions with a really cool group of people as you build life-long relationships with others who desire to be rooted in Christ Jesus! Don’t forget to bring your friends!


Annually we travel together for fellowship and service:

Resurrection (January)
For Grades 6-12
Located in Pigeon Forge, TN

“Resurrection (a youth ministry of the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church) is an awesome annual event of worship and spiritual growth for youth and youth mentors. Each year over 12,000 come together in Pigeon Forge, TN, to celebrate the God of The Resurrection. Through inspirational words and music led by nationally-known speakers and musicians, young people encounter the Lord in new and deeper ways.” For more information, please visit their website:

Johns Island Mission Trip (June)
For Grades 6 to adult
Located in Johns Island, South Carolina

Beginning more than 20 years ago, the Youth (and later the Young Adults) of CHUMC have served on a mission trip affectionately referred to as Johns Island. This island of contrasts is located south of Charleston, South Carolina. Although sections of the island boast million dollar homes and golf courses, there are plenty of people whose housing is less than optimal. These are the people we seek to help.

We work under the direction of Rural Mission Inc., an interdenominational organization founded to promote and minister to the spiritual, economic, social educational, medical and housing needs of residents of the Sea Islands. Past projects have included roof replacement, insulation of walls and attics, replacing windows and doors, painting house exteriors, building porches, steps, and handicap ramps, and giving residents of the island a better place to live and hope for the future.
