Youth Ministry

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity” - Paul in 1 Timothy 4:12


Become a part of a movement that changes the world for Jesus Christ! Through discipleship, service, fun, and fellowship, youth in grades 6-12 have opportunities to grow in their faith, play together, and serve the community and world. Together we can grow closer as friends and share the love of Christ with our hurting world.

Trunk or Treat

Saturday, October 21, 2017, 2:30-5:00pm

We will be hosting our annual Trunk or Treat event from 3:00-5:00pm with setup beginning at 2:30pm. Last year we had multiple cars set up and many families came through and enjoyed the festivities. If you want to setup a trunk and pass out candy, please let JD know so he can add you to the list. This is a great way for us to reach out to the community and provide kids with a safe place to come and enjoy the Halloween season.

One of the most important rites of passage for young people in the United Methodist Church is Confirmation - the opportunity for young people to take the next step on their faith journey, and make a commitment to God and to being a part of the Body of Christ.

Confirmation is open to youth in at least 7th grade.

Our next Confirmation Class will be in the 2018-19 school year.
