Young People of The UMC

Ministries with young people, a vital part of The United Methodist Church, are found in local congregations throughout the church. In this section, we highlight the ministries by and with the children, youth and young adults of The United Methodist Church.

"We aim to empower young people as world-changing disciples of Jesus Christ, to nurture their faith development, and to equip young leaders." - Young People's Ministries

Our children are doing amazing things - raising funds to build wells, selling lemonade to assist others, and offering free bike helmets to keep kids safe.
