YOUTH / Student Ministry
Here at FUMC we acknowledge the importance of our youth and celebrate the joy and energy they bring! Our ministry to youth includes a focus on strong spiritual formation, following a Christian path in the midst of the world, being the light of Jesus Christ to others, opening our group to all, and serving God through serving our neighbors in need.
Below are a few of the activities our students engage in throughout the year.
Sunday School: During the 10:00 A.M. hour each Sunday, teenagers gather in the Youth Room to learn more about scripture and how to apply these lessons to their daily walk.
Sunday Night Youth Group: This is the centerpiece of our Student Ministry here at First UMC. This group meets from 5:30 - 7 each Sunday night during the school year. This program is filled with worship and music, high-energy games, powerful lessons, intentional fellowship, service opportunities, and so much more.
Our Youth Group is open to all Middle & High Schoolers in the church and community! The best way to learn more about Youth is to find out for yourself!
Retreats: Throughout the year our students retreat to different places to enable our teenagers to grow deeper in their faith and be intentional about the community that is being developed. Many of these trips also include fun activities such as skiing, hiking, outdoor activities and much more!
