In the summer of 2023 our youth will go to North Carolina where they will help young and old alike with food insecurity and other basic needs. Our informational meeting to discuss & sign up for the mission trip is Oct. 5th @ 7:30PM in Worship Center

Grades 7 and 8
Seventh and eighth grade students typically make up our Confirmation class (though we confirm older students too). We meet from 6:30-7:30 PM on Wednesday nights when school is in session. Service projects, large group activities and fun are built into our two-year Confirmation program, but most nights, students are divided into small groups led by adult mentors. We use curriculum that our pastor has put together (some original material, some borrowed from other curricula), spending one year focused on the Bible and the other, on United Methodism and theology. We conclude the night together as a large group. The pastor leads the large group in a lesson summary before students are encouraged to stump the pastor with questions about the Bible, faith, United Methodism--most anything is fair game. (There is a fun, edible surprise if you successfully stump the pastor!)
We exist for students to be transformed by the ferocious love of God into new creations marked by healthy relationships with God, ourselves, and others.
Grades 9-12 / Wednesday Night Programming
Community UMC has an active youth group that meets September through May on Wednesday nights downstairs in the Youth Room. Join us as we take a closer look at the life of Jesus and his followers via The Chosen global phenomenon series! Youth will view film and stop and start to have engaging discussions about topics relatable to their own life that parallel the show they are viewing. Once a month the group will go out into the community for service projects and/or fellowship with the Confirmation class.
For more information about the Youth Group contact Jess Monett.
We ask that parents/guardians complete a new Child/Youth Participation/Permission Form and Medical Release at the start of every school year. All provided information will be kept confidential and used to ensure the safe participation of our youth.
