Youth Ministries (UMYF)

UMYF helps our youth navigate the world and lead a more spiritual life. They meet on Sunday nights and will either focus on a lesson from the bible or discuss a current topic and learn how to apply it to everyday life. We take 2 retreats each year and seek to grow in Christ together as we learn and serve.

UMYF also serves their community by participating in year-round and seasonal mission projects. Each summer, our middle school group heads to Wilmington to work with Vigilant Hope, a ministry that serves the poor and homeless in Wilmington. Our high school group (grades 9-12) travel to Hayesville NC to the Hinton Center.
Community-wide fundraisers such as our Annual Chili Cook Off and Spaghetti Dinner and Dessert Auction help to offset costs for participants in these mission trips. Our congregation also partners with the youth as “Trailblazers” to offer support to each team member who serves.
