At the Cathedral of the Rockies, we love kids and recognize that children and teens capture the heart of God. Our Family Ministry areas exists to partner with families as we learn, grow, and live a life of loving Jesus and others. Our greatest desire is that through this partnership, kids will recognize their unique place and mission in God’s Big Story.

Young Adult Ministry

Cathedral Young Adults • 2nd & 4th Sundays @ 5:30pm • Currently meeting via ZOOM

Whether you're a recent grad, full swing in the college scene, taking a "gap year", single, or newly married, we have a place for you! We're so excited to introduce this NEW ministry to all our 18 to 24'ish young adults! Questions? Email Jessica Wilson

 


At the Cathedral we believe in “reactivating the family.”  A phrase that means we believe families have the greatest influence on their kids. As such, we want to partner with and equip you as you lead your children and teens in Spiritual matters...while socializing and having a really great time!

 

We celebrate this partnership quarterly at Family Orange Worship.  Imagine our potential when the heart of the home (Red) and the light of Christ (yellow) come together with one voice. (Red + yellow = Orange).  Join us on May 19, September 8, and December 1, 2019 at 10am in Fellowship Hall.
