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.

Confirmation class is for seventh grade students and older who are interested in joining the church. The class meets on the third floor during the Sunday School hour (9:45-1-:45) starting in January and ending in May with Confirmation Sunday. During our time together, Confirmation students learn key beliefs in our Christian faith and learn about our Wesleyan and United Methodist heritage.

Confirmation Sunday takes place in May and is a special event. Confirmands are welcomed into the church family during the worship service. Afterwards, students and their families are invited to attend a celebratory reception in the Gathering Room.


The Youth Floor is open for students to enjoy on Sunday evenings. Catalyst begins with a time of snack and fellowship followed by praise and worship, a message, and games. Fellowship Dinners, Halloween, Christmas, and Super Bowl Sunday are always occasions for fun, food, and fellowship with one another.

Middle and High School students are invited to join us from 5:15 – 7:15 p.m.


From 6- 7 pm on Wednesday nights during the school year, we enjoy  a meal together. Youth are invited to bring their homework or just hang out while we eat. The Youth News will let you know where we’re headed. Youth will need money for dinner
