The mission of the United Methodist church and its youth ministry is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. We foster growth and leadership of our youth in grades 6-12 through bible study and discussion using contemporary materials and movies, joining in Christian community with other youth in camping programs at Sky Lake, youth events at the conference and multi conference level such as Youth Alive and 4WORD, Chrysalis retreats, and direct mission each summer through Appalachia Service Project, an ecumenical home repair mission. Our youth also participate in worship through music ministry in handbell choir, and sharing their musical gifts in special worship services. They have also planned and led youth services, provide youth representation on our church council, and serve as volunteers at Vacation bible school. Christian education programs on Sunday mornings include opportunities for learning for our middle school and high school age groups. We provide a safe and nurturing place for youth to learn, grow in faith, and discover who God is and how we are called to live.Top
