Reaching the Next Generation of Christ Followers

Our Mission

REACH and disciple students so that through fellowship, worship and discipleship they may grow in faith and REACH others for the sake of Christ

Sunday Mornings 

Age: Grade 7- Grade 12
Begining in September

Confirmation celebrates our students when they are ready to formally make a commitment to the life of the church. This class is open to all interested students. Through teaching of Old and New Testament surveys, Church history, and worship we explore what it means to be a follower of Jesus as United Methodist Christians. We celebrate our students at a special Confirmation Reception, joined by their parents, mentors and members of the church. They are received publicly in worship on Confirmation Sunday.

Connect Wednesdays

Age: 6th-12th Grade Students 

Our midweek Wednesday Connect is smaller and more intimate than Sunday School. It provides a unique atmosphere where students can relax, be themselves, play, study Scripture and talk about life.
