Sunday school begins at 10:30 am September through May
Bring Your Friends: All youth are welcome to join us for UMYF and our other ministries
Participation is key: Your excitement, energy, and participation are needed to make your youth group work and to be fun. Come as often as you can and reach out to those that are missing and let them know they are missed.
Fundraising: There are times we need to do fundraising to help offset the costs for our retreats, events, and activities. Everyone is expected to help the best that they can with our fundraisers. Your participation is needed to make the fundraiser a success!
High School United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF)
Programming is for youth in grades 9-12. A high school Sunday school class meets for Bible study each week from 10:30-11:30 am. United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) meets on varied Sundays. This group meets for worship, study, service, fun, and fellowship.
Appalachia Service Project (ASP)
Each year we take a group of high school youth on a mission trip through ASP. This trip is provided at minimal cost to our youth, and is paid for primarily through fundraising and donations.
“Appalachia Service Project (ASP) provides one of the most rewarding structured service opportunities in the nation -- bringing thousands of volunteers from around the country to rural Central Appalachia to repair homes for low-income families. But ASP is more than just a home repair program. Yes, Appalachia's poorest families urgently need your help, but they can help change your life, too. Because when you change the lives of others, they have a way of changing you.
After a few days of hard work repairing homes with ASP, your hands will grow a little tougher, your arms a little stronger, and your relationship with God a whole lot deeper. You'll return home to your community with a passion for service, a renewed compassion for other people, and a fresh appreciation for your place and purpose in this world. Best of all, you'll discover first-hand that regardless of geography, education, or economic class, we are all equal members of the family of God.” For more information, please visit www.asphome.org
St. Luke United Methodist Church offers several great opportunities for our youth. Our Annual Scholarships for Graduating High School are just one of them. Applications are available in the Spring.
All St. Luke UMC high school senior members graduating from high school are welcome to apply for the St. Luke UMC Scholarship.
Crossfire Middle School Ministry
Crossfire meets Sunday mornings from 10:30am-11:30am throughout the school year. We also have exciting events planned throughout the year.
Confirmation - We meet every Wednesday at 5:45 pm. For our schedule, see the monthly newsletter above. Our first meeting is an informational session for students and parents on September 19 at 5:45 pm in the Youth Room. Regular classes begin September 26, 2018.
Confirmation & Dinner is the first Wednesday of the month. We will still meet at 5:45 pm and food will be served during our meeting.
Confirmation is a two year program starting in seventh grade and ending in eighth grade for students who wish to confirm their faith, reaffirm their baptismal vows, and become members of St. Luke United Methodist Church.
Confirmation in The United Methodist Church is a time of preparation; it gives youth the opportunity to reflect our faith and gives them a safe environment to ask questions. Confirmation helps youth to investigate their growing faith and helps them begin to understand what it means to become a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ. We believe that Confirmation is an important step in the journey of faith.
