Youth Ministries

Ages 11-18

Our youth ministry provides programs and events for young people in 6th through 12th grade to engage in fellowship, discipleship, and service.  

Sunday School

For our middle schoolers, we walk through the Bible with the Bible-in-Life curriculum, which provides a variety of activities for engaging in the scriptures.  Our high schoolers follow a process of sharing what is going on in their lives and discussing current events in their world, as well as the day’s sermon.

Methodist Youth Fellowship (MYF)

Our Sunday evening youth program involving a meal, a game, and Bible study.  This is a fun, loosely structured time for young people to get to know each other and learn about God in a relaxed environment. 



Every other year, our youth participate in the confirmation process. It is a series of classes and excursions which culminate in the youth becoming official members of the church. Confirmation is open to all youth 7th grade and older.


Youth Service Opportunities

In addition to their service work throughout the year, the youth spend a week each summer dedicated to serving others and building their own sense of community.



For over forty years, our high school youth have traveled to the Appalachian region each year to repair and rebuild houses in one of the most financially impoverished areas of the country.


Youth 4 DC

Our middle school youth spend their week of service learning and participating in some of the many organizations working around our city to help the local community. In addition to hard work, the youth engage in meaningful discussions around issues such as homelessness, poverty, hunger, race relations, and our environmental impact.
