Youth Ministry

SHILOH UNITED METHODIST CHURCH’S YOUTH GROUP . . . .

Called UMYF (United Methodist Youth Fellowship), the Youth Group meets each Sunday evening (2012/2013) from 5:30-7:30. Check the Events page for scheduling changes and special activities.

 

 

Through Shiloh UMC’s Youth Group, we hope to help raise our youth to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. Our youth group encourages spiritual and emotional growth through a variety of Bible lessons, discussions, music, art, drama, and recreation. We also realize the importance of supporting parents. Parents are the most important role model in the guidance and development of our youth. We hope to nuture a positive parent/child relationship based on Christian principles. Therefore, our parents are invited to participate in all areas of our our Children’s and Youth ministries. Of course, the children’s safety is always our first priority and we are a Safe Sanctuaries* congregation.

We believe that we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus; to love our world recklessly in all that we do. We believe in each other, and through our fellowship, we desire to grow closer to our Creator. We are a loving and inclusive community of faith. We are learning to live our lives as a reflection of Jesus and His grace.

Youth Group is open for anyone in seventh through twelfth grade and you are always welcome to bring a friend (or more!) to join in while we learn, serve, and have fun.

Shiloh UMC’s youth group is led by Trudye Pierson-King.

Contact us for curriculum information, if you would like to enroll your child(ren), or if you would like to bless the lives of our youth by helping to lead.

 *Safe Sanctuaries is more than guidelines, policies and procedures implemented to create an environment in which children, youth and the adults who work with them have boundaries of safe space. Safe Sanctuaries is an overt expression of a congregation in making a congregation a safe place where children and youth may experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within the community of faith. As a part of Shiloh UMC’s Safe Sanctuaries practices, all adults that work with our children and youth are required to undergo background screenings.
