6TH GRADE KICKOFF - 2022 is Sunday August 28th 6-8pm! We will be kicking off Youth Group for our newest members. This is a great opportunity to meet the Youth leaders here at GUMC and see what youth group is all about in a smaller group setting!!
BIG YOUTH KICKOFF - 2022 is Sunday Sept 11th 6-8pm! 6th-12th graders...join us for food, fun and worship as we kickoff the school year in Youth Group. Save the date and invite some friends!
DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR - Youth group meets weekly - Sunday evenings 6-8pm. We play games, worship and have designated small group time (divided by age group). In addition to our weekly meetings, we have multiple retreats and FUN activities planned throughout the year.
DURING THE SUMMER - We are passionate about missions at GUMC, and our youth are no different. We typically participate in several mission trips each summer. In 2019, our high school students went to Brooklyn, New York and our middle school group served with the Jeremiah Project in Winchester, Virginia. This past summer 2022, we sent a team of middle and high schoolers to Romney West Virginia to assist with the Jeremiah Project. Stay tuned for more info about summer 2023.
CONFIRMATION CLASS - This 13-week class is designed for our students
to gain a deeper understanding of their faith and in particular their Methodist
heritage and basic United Methodist theology. The class typically starts in January, following the Christmas break. Stay tuned for the upcoming confirmation class sign up.
We hope that you will join us!
