Youth Ministries

About youth ministries

At First United Methodist Church, we desire teens to know God personally, love unconditionally, and serve selflessly.

Why we exist

We exist to help teens become fully devoted followers of Christ, developing a faith that will last well beyond their teen years. We believe that teens are not the next generation to impact the kingdom of God, but rather a generation who is and can make an impact today.

What We Value

At First United Methodist Church, we value equally the need for teens to be involved in intergenerational worship services and other activities, while also having their own age specific environments that build community among their peers. We strive to create opportunities that unite the whole family and assist them, in cooperation with the Holy Spirit, in forming Christlikeness in their children. Some of the age specific venues include Encounter, Youth Group, Camp, Confirmation,and other seasonal activities.
