Teenagers meet every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. for special church services featuring practical applications of the Truth Principles taught by Christ Universal Temple. Innovative approaches include the Bible Bowl, in which teams of boys and girls have friendly competition on Bible knowledge. YEC also offers a yearlong curriculum of New Thought Christian lesson geared towards the needs of teenagers.

Contact Hareder McDowell, Director of Youth Ministry, for information and current schedule. Call 773-568-2282 or hmcdowell@cutemple.org.
