UM Youth Fellowship


Our vibrant youth program helps each young person progress spiritually from a childhood faith to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. United Methodist Youth Fellowship, Sunday School, Bible Studies, small groups and mission projects keep them focused on Christ and on service to others. Our youth ministries provide Christian nurturing and positive fellowship while giving teens a wealth of experiences that lead to personal growth and spiritual maturity.

SUMC's active youth group includes middle school (7th and 8th graders) and high school (9th-12th graders). Members, non-members and friends are always welcome. We meet most Sunday evenings from 4:30-6:30 for games, lessons and programs, dinner and a time for announcements and prayer concerns.
