St. John’s Youth Ministry is committed to providing a strong Christian environment for learning, growth and fellowship. We have numerous ways for youth to get connected at St John’s, including an annual Youth Sunday where youth lead worship. Attached below is a picture from this year’s youth Sunday, when 7 students confirmed their faith, 2 students were baptized in the faith, and we celebrated the high school graduation of 2 seniors.

United Methodist Youth

St. John’s United Methodist Youth (UMY) is an active youth group for sixth through twelfth graders with many activities throughout the year. Youth are able to dive deeper into our faith through mission trips and weekly activities in which we learn more about God and are in fellowship with each other.

Sunday Afternoons

UMY meets every Sunday during the school year from 4-5:30 p.m. (unless otherwise specified in the youth calendar). Activities vary from week to week but typically include icebreaker activities, games, and a Bible Study lesson. Our lessons might include hands-on activities, a movie clip, media or diving into Scripture. Our goal is to strengthen friendships and our relationship with Christ and HAVE FUN!

Wednesday Night Live (WNL) — COMING JANUARY 2024

Once a month, the St. John’s youth group will meet on a Wednesday night for fellowship or team building. This time is focused on building better relationships and fostering closer bonds among our students. The Wednesday Night Live for each month is announced during worship, in our youth newsletter, and promoted on our Instagram. For more information, please contact Connor Dean, our Director of Youth & Children’s Ministries.

Youth Sunday School

Youth Sunday school meets from 9:45 – 10:45 a.m.
