Students meet up with their friends for an authentic and fun community, practical teaching, and small group conversation centered around what it means to know Jesus Christ.

Youth Group at University Church Kent is pictured here at their annual summer Christian retreat.

Youth Sunday School

We emphasize Bible-based Discipleship process and follow a Presbyterian curriculum that assures that the key messages of the Bible are covered over a three-year period.  On many Sundays, the class goes over to the KSU Hub or other fine fast food restaurants for community and refreshments.  Be sure to be on time so you won’t be left behind if we leave to hold class elsewhere.

Sunday school starts at 11:30 a.m.

University Church, right by Kent State, youth group is seen at their summer camp, which is a step away from the normal Sunday School life.

Youth Room

We provide an opportunity for you to be with friends, or to make new ones, as we enjoy our youth church space.

Youth hang out every Tuesday and Thursday from 4-6 p.m.

Leader: Colton Snyder

Youth Group events at University Church, formerly Kent Presbyterian Church, are like the one pictured. Here, we see our youth group with another church youth group.

Youth Group

We meet the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month at 6:00 pm to have fun through various events: Rock Climbing, Laser Quest, Movie Night, Game Night, and Putt-putt golf are a few examples.  We always meet at the church first, then head to the activity.
