Our Vision for Youth Ministry
For WUMC to be a place to belong, a place to know God loves you, and a place to hear God calling you to a life of loving service for the transformation of the world.
Worship, conversation, study, prayer and serving others are our main tools for accomplishing that vision.
Sunday morning worship gatherings and Youth Group are the main times and places those tools are practiced.
Our weekly Youth Group gatherings are on Sunday afternoons from 12noon-1:30pm. 2019-20 School Year is not a Confirmation year, so all students in 7th-12th grades are invited and welcome. Bring a friend!
After second worship service ends meet in the kitchen for lunch — parents are invited too. After the meal we will play games and learn about and from each other regarding the life of faith and just life in general. No topic is out of bounds.
Sharing a meal together is a holy moment. And everyone needs to eat. After second worship service ends meet in the kitchen. To volunteer to provide a meal, visit our Meal Train site.
MISSION TRIP 2020
Our trip is to Lorain County, OH from June 14th-21st.
Join us as we strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus while repairing homes for folks who need some help.
When: Sunday, June 14th — Sunday, June 21st
Where: Lorain County, Ohio (just west of Cleveland)
With Whom: We are partnering with Next Step again this year (same organization as 2019).
Who: All students currently in 7th-12th grades are invited to participate
What will we do: Mostly home repair for senior members of the community.
Why: To live God’s call on all of our lives to love our neighbors as ourselves.
How: Reserve your spot with a $50 deposit. That deposit goes toward the $250 total fee. Checks made to WUMC Youth.
Please note: We chose this location in part because it is close enough that we can get there without spending the night along the way. That’s why the beginning trip date is Sunday. The ending date is also a Sunday because sharing our experiences with the congregation is a vital part of the trip. So the trip isn’t truly over until we’ve done that in worship on June 21st.
All in person events are cancelled for now.
Sundays, April 19th, & 26th: If we are able to gather in person again we will have Youth Group at regular time and place these Sundays, 12noon-1:30pm. Check back for updates.
Our church is a Safe Sanctuaries congregation. That means we walk the talk of keeping kids safe, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Opportunities for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary students to learn stories of faith in age-appropriate ways. We want children of all ages to know they are safe, to know they are loved, and to know they are an active part of a larger story.
Opportunities to grow in faith as we get to know others and come to be known by others. We learn with each other and we learn from each other as we explore together how to live the way of Jesus in the world today.
