Youth Group

YUMC Youth Program exists to:

DEVELOP YOUTH DISCIPLES ~ SERVE TOGETHER
~ CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER ~ AND HAVE FUN!

 

YUMC’s Senior High Youth Group is a very caring, safe, and accepting, connected group of more than 20 members.  Our youth group continues to make a difference in our community and in the world.  Each of our members is encouraged to share in friendship and fellowship within a trusting and Christian environment.  Our senior high youth group is open to all youth in the 9th thru the 12th grades.  This group meets bi-monthly usually on Sunday evenings at 6:00 PM.  You are welcome to come and join us anytime and bring your friends too!  Everyone is welcome, regardless of denomination or religious affiliation!

YUMC’s Junior High Youth Group is for middle school students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades, regardless of their religious affiliation.  The goal of this group is to provide a safe and accepting Christian environment as these youths become teenagers.  During the school year (not including holidays), we meet twice a month.  The Junior Youth Group leaders, with assistance from the Pastor, plan meetings that are confidence building, that support community awareness and provide a fun time for all.
