Grade 6 - 12

Youth Activities

Confirmation Classes

First UMC believes that the church is open and welcome to persons of all ages.  To help young people learn about United Methodist Christian understandings of faith and create holy relationships between them, their mentors, and Christ Jesus, we offer Confirmation Classes when needed. 

Our next confirmation class: TBD

Sunday Night Youth

Young people in 6th – 12th grade gather on Sunday Night  for fellowship and games as part of our youth group.  A team of adult leaders model Christian mentorship (though we learn as much from the Youth as they do from us) throughout the activities.

On a typical Sunday night, our Youth start at 5:30pm when we pull together the long tables in Fellowship Hall and share a meal and our “highs and lows” of the week.  This is followed by games and activities like Human Battleship, Sardines, or Giant Jenga.  A giant jar of questions sometimes makes an appearance giving us a chance to debate very important (or very silly) topics.  Every Youth gathering ends with a prayer huddle.

Youth serve at FUMC in worship and community projects.  

Want to join us?  If you’re in the grades 6 – 12 we’d love to see you on a Sunday night.  Dress in comfortable clothes.  Come hungry and ready to see God in the people around you.

United Method Camping

Michigan Are United Methodist Camping offers beautiful camps were youth can grow in faith and connect with God, have a blast with games, water sports, and outdoor adventures, live in community with trained and caring counselors, unplug from electronics and daily distractions, discover and learn through new experiences, be safe and accepted, build relationships that often last a lifetime.
You can check out the possibilities and register at  Scholarship funds may be available, so contact the church office if a teen you love wants to go to church camp.
