Youth Ministry (7th-12th grade)

Our mission at TFUMC is to Share Christ, Build Disciples, and Send Ministers and this is the mission for the youth group as well. We want to make sure that our lives are centered around Christ and that our youth group can face those challenges together that can sometimes distract us from God. We look at Scripture, what Jesus has to say to us today, we pray together and worship together each week to keep ourselves accountable. We try to find ways to serve in our community, in our state, and around the world.
Weekly Programming
Sunday School – Every Sunday from 10-10:45am we meet in the YAC. We dive into scripture and figure out together how it applies to us as youth. Two of our AWESOME dads lead this time for us!

UMYF – (United Methodist Youth Fellowship) – We meet on most Sundays from 5:00-7:30pm. We eat dinner, worship, hear a message from Ginny, play games, and have scripture-based small groups during this time! We are in a new series called Heroes, so come check it out! Check the calendar below for special events that may occur in addition or in place of UMYF. Join us!

Mid-Week Merge – Every Wednesday night we meet from 6:00-7:00pm. We worship together, we work through questions and struggles we have as Christians with the help of scripture and then, of course, we play games!

Youth Bands:
WEDNESDAY: Beginner Band (7th graders) meet from 3:45-4:30pm. Junior Band (8th-9th graders) meet from 4:30-5:15pm and lead us in worship before Bible Study. There is a study hall available for both groups from 3:45-5:15pm when they are not practicing.
