Youth Group

Come join us for Youth Group!

All 7th graders through 12th graders are welcome! The Youth Leaders strive to keep it engaging, loving and inclusive. Please check out our Youth Group calendar for January & February. 

The Fall is a busy time, filled with fun activities, group outings to build bonds and most importantly, opportunities to get to know other members.

There are also lots of exciting Faith Formation events at KCC during the Fall. Click here to view a calendar of events.

Confirmation is taught by our minister Rev. Darryl Kistler and our Faith Programs Director, Barbara Runco. The classes are offered for 6th grade and older students who are preparing to assume responsibility for their own faith journeys. At the end of Confirmation, the young people who elect to join, are welcomed into the church’s membership.We will restart the 2020 Cohort in September 2021. Then we will have a new Confirmation Cohort start in the fall of 2023.

For more information, contact Rev. Darryl Kistler at





Our Whole Lives Sexuality Education

The award-winning Faith and Sexuality course, Our Whole Lives, is offered to 7th through 9th grade students, and older ones by request. As sexuality is a gift from God, we encourage young adults to articulate their values, consider consequences, and approach decisions with their faith in mind. It is a life saving program that can prevent disease, and help young people talk in depth, honestly and without judgment, about their sexual health, relationships, gender identity, and their changing bodies.

The next OWL class begins in September 2022. To learn more about the program, contact Barbara Runco, Faith Programs Director at
