At Chehalis United Methodist we want active youth, growing in their faith and in healthy relationships with all generations!  Here are two programs that help youth to find their place.


Chehalis UMC does not currently have a youth group of its own, however, the First United Methodist Church of Centralia invites youth related to our congregation to be part of their ongoing youth group!

This Youth Group is offered at  FIRST UMC of CENTRALIA.  It usually meets on Sunday at 6:30-8:00 PM (with some exceptions).   Most of the meetings/activities are at CENTRALIA FIRST United Methodist, so unless it is an outing, that’s the place at 6:30 PM!  Get your cell number and/or email to Pastor Tom (text 360-388-6582) at CFUMC and get your weekly update on what’s happening.

Occasionally there is a special event that changes the TIME for the group, so check with Pastor Tom for more information. 

(Background check is required for volunteers with youth.)


We have an outstanding music program at CUMC!bell choir

ANGEL BEATS – These are not just “older” kids, but those with a little bit of experience, and some with music background, but not particularly with bells, can also give it a try.  This ensemble uses both chimes and hand bells.

We need more youth who will commit to the practice and performance times, to make this the best program we can offer!  Currently, we often have some adults playing some parts.  Rehearsals are on Monday evenings at 7:00 PM. in the upstairs Bell Choir rooms (off the main hallway to the sanctuary).  For more information contact Leslie Durham, the director.
