Grades 7-12: United Methodist Youth Fellowship

Youth Fellowship meets Sunday evenings from 5 to 6:30 pm, September through May. It is followed by a light supper and then students are encouraged to attend Journey, a youth choir that meets at 7pm. Youth Fellowship includes on site and off site activities which are focused on fun and fellowship with friends. All students, grades 7-12, are invited and friends are always welcome to attend.


Grades 7-12: Journey Choir

We meet on Sunday nights at 7:00 in conjunction with youth fellowships, because many of us are also in those groups. We include people in grades 7-12. We sing a wide variety of music in worship and special concerts.


Grade 8-12

Students meet from 9:30 to 10:30 am on Sundays in the Church of Youth. They discuss current events and issues affecting their lives. Topics covered include (but are not limited to) bullying, peer pressure, self-esteem, healthy relationships, parents, sports and headline news. This is a discussion group that builds relationship with one another as they explore how their daily lives are influenced and affected by their faith in action.
