JUMC Youth Group

Youth are the future of our families, society, and church. We believe that youth deserve a chance to express themselves through music, sport, fellowship, and the love of God. Youth are challenged in many aspects of their lives, we hope to help them learn meaningful skills that will help them navigate through their journey with Christ. Our hope is to lead them on a path centered around God, that will help shape their views of the world and motivate their futures. Our ultimate goal is to create a youth environment that is encourages friendships to develop based on the shared interests and the love of Christ. Our group offers an opportunity fun while developing friendships and spiritual growth.

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
