Youth Ministries

Sunday Night Youth - (UMYF)

Middle school and high school youth meet Sunday nights from 4:30-6:00 at church in the youth room for short lessons with games, activities, and fellowship. Periodically, youth will take this time to meet outside of the church walls for local activities (go out for bowling, ice cream, house gatherings, etc.) or local missions.

Wednesday Night Youth

On Wednesday evenings, youth meet from 6:30-7:30 to explore in-depth topics and conversations that pertain to Christian faith as a youth in contemporary society.


This is a special class for middle and high school youth that explores Methodist theology and doctrine. Confirmation typically runs from the beginning of the year until the summer. Upon graduation, youth will become confirmed members of the church.  

Events, Retreats, and Missions

throughout the year, youth will have opportunities to attend youth retreats and events. Many of these are put on by our Western United Methodist Conference. Other events such as summer mission trips and local service projects are lead by ministerial staff. For a glimpse of upcoming events, check out the updated column on the right.

We hope you will come and discover the wonderful things God is doing among and through our youth. To sign up for email updates, send an email request to Will Holt at
