The General Conference of The United Methodist Church states that the primary task of youth ministry is to:
- Love youth where they are
- Encourage them in developing their relationship with God
- Provide them with opportunities for nurture and growth
- Challenge them to respond to God’s call to serve in their communities
Our programs are designed to meet the spiritual, social, and emotional needs of our children and youth in grades 6 - 12.
Classes meet every Sunday 9 to 10 a.m. from September to May. The classes offer Christian formation opportunities under the direction of adult volunteer teachers. Registration is open all year and youth can join the classes at any time.
Students in the middle school class explore the Bible, Christian themes, and the intersection of faith and life through discussions, activities and resources from Youth Ministry Partners.
Students in the high school class also explore the Bible, Christian themes, and the intersection of faith and life. This class has also been known to make Play-Doh sculptures and to cover a wall in sticky notes.
Eight high school students recently completed a year long confirmation program and were confirmed on May 19. The Confirmation page has more information about the program and pictures of some of the activities that took place during the year, as well as pictures of the confirmands.
