youth

Welcome to Youth at FUMCOR

 

Here at First UMC, we view our youth group not just as future leaders of the church, but leaders of the church now, with important and valuable voices. In our youth group, we balance our time both deepening our faith and spiritual lives, and having a lot of fun together. Our youth group is for grades 7-12.

Confirmation is a year-long experience for 6th graders as they prepare to join the church. Open the Confirmation tab for more information.
