Youth activities are important to community life at Christ the King. Our group spans grades 7-12. For grades 7-8 we offer Discipleship Training, which meets every Wednesday throughout the school year. They study in preparation to Affirm their Baptism.

In addition to Discipleship Training, we have various youth events for grades 7-12, which involve fellowship, Bible study, prayer, service projects and fun. In the summer, high school students participate in the ELCA Youth Gathering which occurs every three years, service trips and high adventure trips
