Youth are not the future of the church, they are part of the church! We strive to make sure youth feel welcome in all aspects of church life! Our youth group meets Sunday afternoons from 5-6:30 PM (Labor Day through Memorial Day), Sunday mornings during Sunday school (year round) and for special events throughout the year!
Youth events and meetings are led by Pastors Powell and Sarah, Coordinator of Youth Outreach -Waylon Bell, and a team of trained volunteers! All volunteers must pass a background check and participate in Safe Sanctuaries training (Provided at the church). We are always looking to grow our volunteer base, so please contact any of our pastors if you are interested.
NEW YEAR. NEW PLAN. SAME TIME. SAME JESUS.
Eat dinner before you come! We will be doing some new and different things this year at youth group! Middle schoolers will meet in the fellowship hall for games and small groups. High schoolers will meet in the loft for fellowship time and small groups. We are diving deep into God's word and doing a four week study on Jesus. Who is he? What did he do? Why does it matter to us? Masks are recommended and we hope that all of you will join us as we seek to grow in our faith.
Youth Sunday School is currently not meeting. We encourage our Youth to attend a worship service and Youth Group on Sunday evenings.
Youth ministry meets on Sunday Evenings (the Sunday after Labor Day through the Sunday before Memorial Day) from 6:30 - 7:30 PM for a time of worship, dinner and small groups! We have two small groups for youth:
Magnify - Middle School Youth
Magnify is a group where youth learn how to magnify their faith in God by learning more about the Bible and what we believe as United Methodist Christians
Amplify - High School Youth
Amplify is a group for youth to be able to amplify their faith through service, study, prayer and fellowship.
Our youth praise band is led by Jason Ketchum. We are always welcoming new members! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in joining.
