SPLAT
(Seeking, Praising, Learning, Asking, Teaching)

SPLAT is our CUMC youth group (grades 7-12) growing in faith together through seeking, praising, learning, asking and teaching. We meet on Sundays from 11:30 - 1 p.m. SPLAT is for youth in the church and in the community – come join us!

Youth combine fun activities and social time; spiritual formation; Bible study (reading scripture and relating it to their daily lives and concerns); mission opportunities; and encounters with God in the community. Through participation and study youth also prepare for confirmation (generally in their 9th grade year) if desired. SPLAT is an open and honest time of discovery, exploration and learning. 

SPLAT also meets on Sunday mornings from 8:30-11:30 am for Brew Crew, a Christian-based youth coffee shop serving the congregation homemade treats and fair trade coffee. Youth have fun together while gaining valuable work experience and earning funds to go on mission trips. Brew Crew was started by some of our youth, who learned about the importance of fair trade and wanted to bring it home to Coralville UMC and our members.   

Examples of other SPLAT activities include an annual trip to Winter jam in Des Moines (a night of praise and music performances by top Christian artists, attended by more than 10,000 youth), kernel games, local mission work, local Christian concerts, a yearly mission trip, church lock-ins and an annual Christmas party/dinner.

Don’t let anyone put you down because you’re young, but teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, and by integrity. –1 Timothy 4:12
