Welcome to the Youth Page! We are an active and dynamic group, made up of middle and high schoolers. If you or your teenager is looking for a group of fun-loving and Jesus-loving people to hang out with, look no further. We would love to have you join us for any of our regular or special activities.
On a regular basis, our Youth activities look like:
UMYF - We have UMYF (fellowship) every Sunday Night from 5:00-6:30 PM, unless noted otherwise. This is a great time to hang out with other students your age who are also seeking to grow in their faith. We have snacks, games, and an enriching lesson each week.
SUNDAY SCHOOL - During the Sunday School Hour in the mornings - 10:00 - 10:55 AM - we meet for a fun game and fellowship, a lesson to deepen our faith, and *almost* always the classic Dunkin Donuts.
QUEST - 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm - This is a weekly event during the school year only. We pick up students from school (with permission forms) after the school day, and bring them back to the church for an extended time of games and snacks, and a great lesson. After Quest is an optional Church-wide dinner (6:00 - 7:00) that you can sign up for on the website, or fill out a form in the pews on Sunday Morning.
EVENTS - We are a very active church, so we frequently have additional events for youth to participate in. These are announced in the Church Bulletin, via the youth weekly email, and through the Remind App. They are also listed on the Google Calendar, which you can find on our page to the right of your screen.
If you are new here, we would love to get to know you! Please take a moment to fill out a quick questionnaire so we can better help you find your place at WFUMC.
New youth require a Medical Release Form to participate. These are located HERE, in the Youth Bulletin Board in Grace Hall, and you can also ask Thomas Hartley (the Youth Director) for a physical copy.
QUEST participants need an additional release form to give to the school so they may ride on the church bus. This is located HERE, and on the Youth Bulletin Board in Grace Hall, and may also be requested from Thomas Hartley.
We send out emailed information most frequently, but you can also follow us on Instagram! @wfumcyouth
