All youth are welcomed at the 4G (Gather, Gain, Grow, and Give) youth program at FUMC. The Christian development of youth is a primary focus of the First United Methodist Church family. Youth ministry is a team effort, and volunteers (parents of youth and other adult leaders in the church) provide a wide variety of activities and opportunities for your youth.
All events and opportunities are created to be a time and space for youth in 6 -12 grade to come GATHER together with each other for fun and memorable experiences. In our time together we GAIN meaningful relationships and accountability for our lives. Our events are designed to help us GROW together with one another and with God. As we develop as disciples of Christ we learn to GIVE ourselves to God and to His kingdom purposes.
Throughout the year we offer opportunities for youth to come to know Christ as a personal Lord and Savior. We strive to help them grow in their faith, to become more like Christ, and give them ways to be an example of Christ to others.
The following programs have long histories in our church: Sunday school, confirmation, youth fellowship, Bible studies and small groups, choirs, outreach/service/missions, camping, and retreats.
