Please check back for up-to-date information. We just hired a new Youth Director who starts September 19.
Youth Sunday School
The Youth (6th- 12th grades) meet Sunday mornings @ 10:00 am to be engaged in a Christian small group that is relational, missional and educational. Sometimes, we discuss the sermon from worship, other times we study scripture in-depth, but we always check-in with one another.
Meets most Sunday nights @ 6:30-8:00p.m. during the school year, but we always take the last Sunday of the month off. Our summer schedule varies with events, trips, and opportunities to be involved.
You can expect fun, something to learn, something to eat, and even some seriousness as we connect together.
We are a group of young people gathered to practice, praise, and seek God's will for our lives. Explore what it means to be a Christian - the type of Christian who puts hands and feet to their faith, reaching out into communities to follow Jesus' example of loving and caring for others... not just the beautiful others, but the others in pain, without homes, tired, sick, and hungry. Celebrate who God made you to be. Discover how God can change the world through you.
What is Confirmation:
Confirmation is a year-long class and an experience to explore what you think, feel, know, and believe about yourself, your faith, and your world. Confirmation is our way of helping students learn to question their faith so that it can grow and become a foundation for a lifetime. The classes are also meant to help students learn more about what it means to be part of a congregation, why people choose a place to worship and serve. At the end of Confirmation, a person is given an opportunity to affirm their baptism and choose to join the church. Confirmation class typically meets once-a-month from September through May including 4 evening classes, 1 retreat, and 2 field trips.
If you are interested in or have questions about Confirmation please talk to Pastor Molly.
Camps and Retreats
Our Youth Group attends occasional retreats during the year. We encourage our youth to attend one of four UMC Camps and if you regularly attend GHUMC, we even offer 50% of your registration fee. Click here to Learn more.
Mission and Service
We engage in mission both near and far, striving to gain an understanding of others around us and give our time and talents to transform the world. We have a tradition of serving at the FISH Food Bank on MLK day each January.
