Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry is focused on nurturing the faith of middle school and high school students.

Sunday School
We have a youth Sunday school every Sunday at 9:45am.

Sunday Night Life
This is our primary weekly Youth Group event. We meet in the youth area and gather for worship, skits, games, and a message. Then we break into small groups, separating by age and gender. To end the night, we finish with a snack.

Covenant Discipleship Small Groups
Youth interested in further discipleship are invited to join a Covenant Discipleship Small Group that meets on Wednesday at 6:30pm.

Special Events
From our Summer Mission Trip to Winter Blitz, we have events throughout the year for fun, service, and spiritual growth.

Confirmation
The Youth Ministry Team intentionally develops special confirmation classes for our youth that help them take the next step in their faith journey by confirming their baptism covenant and professing faith in Jesus Christ.

We asked our students, parents, and volunteers what do they like about Wilmore UMC’s Youth Ministry, and here is what they said:

“I was new here a few months ago and I felt really welcome. It’s like a family.” —Student

“Winter Blitz!” —Student

“These students really want to grow in their faith.” —Parent

“Getting to know the students in my small group.” —Volunteer

“Missions are a big deal here!” —Student

“Our students are hungry for opportunities to serve and lead.” —Volunteer

“WYHAWTKBWATA! It stands for ‘What you have always wanted to know but were afraid to ask.’ We get to ask whatever we want and then discuss it.” —Student

In my time here, I’ve found that we have a welcoming group of students who are ready to dive deep into their faith and live it out. These are also broken students who are each dealing with their own struggles and doubts. Our Youth Ministry Team (YMT) is passionate about helping them go to God for the answers.

If you have any questions about the Youth Ministry at Wilmore UMC, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
