Fusion is our Student Ministry program at CUMC. As a church we believe that the spiritual development of the upcoming generations is incredibly important. We place a lot of emphasize on making sure that our kids have a safe place to learn more about Jesus, starting with The Wave (birth-4th), Transit (5th - 6th) and Fusion (7th -12th).

All of our ministries echo our overall church goal and vision: Connect, Grow, Share. We might phrase it slightly different from ministry to ministry to better address the age groups that we are interacting with. In our Fusion ministry we do this through the simple words Found, Equipped, Sent.

As a ministry we want to make sure that all of our students develop a relationship with God, that they would be Found in the love of our Heavenly Father. Then we want to empower our students through teaching, serving opportunities and small groups to Equip them for the work of God and His kingdom. Lastly, we want our students to know that they have a valuable role to play in the narrative of God's story, and that they are being Sent out to share God's grace with others. 

At Fusion we have a very simple goal, "we want to simplify our approach to amplify Jesus." This just means that our focus is not necessarily to have the biggest, most cutting edge, crazy games and set up. We will have games and do cool events but all of that comes in second to creating an opportunity for our students to have a genuine encounter with God. 

Current Message Series


“We’re meant to be.” It’s how all of our favorite movies, songs, and books talk about love—as if the secret to an amazing relationship is a little bit of destiny, a whole bunch of feelings, and a tiny dash of magic. So it makes sense, when we observe the not-so-perfect, real-life relationships modeled by our friends, parents, and favorite celebrities, that we might start to wonder, “Wait—is that how relationships are meant to be?” In this 4-week series, we’ll give students a better lens for evaluating their current and future dating relationships as we help them see that the secret to a relationship that’s “meant to be” is to stay close to Jesus, date with purpose, know who you’re looking for, and keep sex in the right context.

Fusion Service  times

We Believe that it’s important to meet the needs of our students in a way that is specifically geared to meet them where they are. This is why we have a Middle School Service and a High school service.  While they will both cover the same topic most of the time, it is presented in a way that is more appropriate and for that age group.

Both of our groups meet on Sunday evenings. On these nights both groups gather from 6:00 - 8:00 PM. You will see these nights on the meeting schedule below.

Upcoming Fusion Retreats

Through out the year we try to take our students on a few different retreats to help refocus our attention on God and strengthen that relationship. These trips are a great opportunity for our students to create new friendships and grow closer to their leaders. 

We try hard to price these trips so that they are affordable to all. However, we understand that sometime these trips can be financially challenging. We never want money to be the reason a student is not able to participate or experience a connection with God. Thats why we offer partial and full scholarships for all of these events. Scholarships are distributed on an as needed bases and for large families with multiple kids who would want to attend the trips. Just fill out the Scholarship Form and have it turned in to Hugo. 

  • Fusion Summer Camp 2019

    Summer Camp is the best week of the year in our Fusion Calendar. There's no other time or event in which we see this level of fellowship or community among our students and our leaders. We also get to see students encounter God on a completely different level. We are very intentional about creating a space where students can be separated from their everyday distraction and can focus their attention on God.

    This year we'll be staying at the Bonclarken Christian Center once again!! This place is AMAZING!! Camp includes some awesome activities like the dueling zip-lines, rock climbing wall, pool, full gym, ga-ga pit, outdoor soccer arena, disc golf, paintball, kayaking, and a pool. Those are the activities that our students can participate in during FREE TIME!! 

    We also have our "Tribal Wars" happening this summer where students will compete all week long to earn points as a team. At the end of the week our winning "Tribe" will be awarded a very special price.

    We have a lot of fun planned for our students but our main goal and hope for this retreat is that students would have a genuine encounter with their Heavenly Father. Everything we do is meant to point our attention and our hearts towards God and His love for us. Students will walk away with strengthen relationships among themselves, with their leaders, and most importantly with God. We do this through intentional devotion time each morning, worship, teachings and discussion groups. Students are encouraged to bring their questions about who God is and what our lives are supposed to look like when we chase after God.
