Student Ministry 

At First United Methodist Church, we believe that middle and high school students are a vital part of our congregation.  Our Student Ministry strives to be an invitational and welcoming place for students of all backgrounds where they can find community and a place to belong.  We want to meet students wherever they are in their faith journey, walk alongside them as they grow, and be a safe place where they can ask questions and learn to seek faithful answers. By providing worship, discipleship, and mission opportunities, we aim to help students become mature Christians who transform the world by Loving God and Loving Neighbor.
