The JCUMC Youth program ministers to middle school and high school students with outreach continuing throughout their college years. They meet on the third floor of the education building, also known as the “Youth Floor.” Designed to be a welcoming place for teens, youth gathers there regularly to share in worship, study and have fun. Students are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of experiences that build faith and strengthen their relationships with God, family, community and each other.

As graduated high school students head off to college, the College Ministry Team reaches out to keep them connected to their home church.  Letters in the mail, emails, texts, and Facebook messages are sent throughout the year to let students know that they are loved, supported and still an important part of the JCUMC church family.

The program meets on the first Wednesday of the month from 3:30- 5:30 at the church. Students are invited to come receive tutoring in certain subjects, work together on group projects, and to mentor each other. Members of our congregation are present to provide the tutoring. Learn More Here

During semester breaks, college-age students are invited to get together for a social evening of fun and fellowship.  A summer mission trip also provides an opportunity for them to stay connected to their church and each other in a meaningful way.  As always, college students are welcomed and encouraged to attend Sunday school whenever they are in town.
