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. The youth group also participates in fun activities and service projects throughout the year. We are meeting at the fire pit this fall (weather permitting), otherwise in the Lower Level.
For more information about the Youth Group contact Jess Monett.
2022 Youth Mission Trip
We are currently planning for the mission trip next summer. Youth who have completed 8th grade through 12th grade are eligible to participate. For more information, 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.
