Youth Mission Trip

Every summer, the FUMC Youth group and adult vlunteers participate in week-long mission trip.  The group collaborates with other churches with one goal in mind - TO SERVE. Volunteers work in teams to complete tasks such as building wheel chair ramps for homes, roofing, gardening, or other projects as needed.  This trip teaches about the volue of hard work and serving others and learning the joy it brings to be the hands and fee of Christ.

Spring Break Trip

At spring break, our Youth Director and adult volunteers take the youth group to the slopes!  Our kids have so much fun during the day skiing and playing and gather every evening for devotional time and worship.  


United Methodists use the term "confirmation" to mark the first time a baptized Christian publicly "confirms" their intention to live the vows of the baptismal and membership covenant and so becomes a professing member of the local congregation and The United Methodist Church.

Each Spring youth in grades 6th and up are eligible to participate in our confirmation class.
