Youth Ministries at First UMC
United Methodist Youth Fellowship
We at First Church have a busy Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) dedicated to camaraderie, community service and education.
Youth Sunday School Programs:
Jr. High (Grades 6-8) meets Sunday nights from 6-7:30PM
Sr. High (Grades 9-12) meets Sunday nights from 7-8:30PM
Calendar of Upcoming Events
Please contact Jason Wood, Director of Student Ministries, through the church office for the current calendar of events.
Youths in grades Pre-K - 6th Grades (7-12 are invited to attend and be mentors in the program) are invited to participate in this after-school program on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 6:30p.m. Each session includes Bible study, dinner, choir, games and recreation. There is a fee. LOGOS begins in September and goes until after Easter.
Youths in grades 6 to 12 serve as acolytes during the 11 a.m. Sunday worship. Youths participate by lighting candles, helping with baptisms, carrying banners and other such tasks. Ruth Nelson is always looking for interested helpers.
Camping is provided at any of the three United Methodist camps: Allegheny, Jumonville and Wesley Woods. The church pays a portion of the fees. For more information on our conference camps, click on the links below.
District and Conference Events
The youths of the church participate in and support events of the Kane District and the Western Pennsylvania Annual Conference.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of us.
