Every Sunday evening is an opportunity to inspire youth with Christ's love.  If you have a story to share, a message of inspiration or love teaching Bible stories, we have a stage for you. Contact Shelly Albright  at salbright@stpeters-umc.org for more information.

Youth Activities



Sunday Mornings                

 

Worship              9:30am      

We think it is important for youth to participate in worship. All youth are invited to sit with one another in fellowship, during the 9:30am contemporary worship service. We sit on the right front side of the sanctuary. Youth families are welcome to sit with us as well!

 

High School Small Group     11:00am       Youth Room

We want our students to experience a changed life and a deeper faith in Christ. Growing in Christ starts with knowing who he is, and that's the total focus of "LIVE: Year with Jesus".

The 36 lessons in this character study will provide your students with an in-depth look at the life of Jesus. They'll discover who he is, what he did during his earthly ministry, the truths he taught, and how they can share the message of Jesus with their world. 



Youth Group         Sundays       4:00pm - 6:00pm         Youth Room

Youth Group is a great time to fellowship with other youth while learning important Biblical principles about current youth topics.  We enjoy snacks, games, praise music and a scripture lesson together. 

Family Night at Youth Group

Every third Sunday of the month is Family Night at Youth Group!  We invite parents to come join us for Bible Study, guest speakers and our monthly dinner.  Childcare is provided for children not in youth group, if needed. Your space for childcare needs to be reserved in advance. 



Wednesday Nights           7:00pm - 8:30pm


B&B Club

Join the boys (6th-12th grade) for a night of basketball and Bible in the gym.  


Girl Talk 

Girls (8th-12th grade) are invited to join us as we share our struggles and victories, and learn to support each other in Christian love.

Youth Events

Fellowship is important to us.  In order for youth to build strong friendships in a loving environment, we encourage youth to participate in our fun activities.  Join us for Rock the Universe, Escape Night, Thanksgiving Dinner, Christmas Party, Theme Nights, Fall Fun Night, Ice Skating and more. Make sure to stay updated with all of our events through our Facebook page, parent email, bulletin updates or the Youth Calendar.



Middle & High School Mission Trips

Great work weeks in locations like Copperhill, Atlanta, New Orleans, Gatlinburg, Puerto  Rico, and more.

Discovery Weekend for Middle Schoolers

Discovery Weekend is a spiritual retreat weekend for Middle School students. This weekend is open to all church youth groups. The youth involved will focus on experiencing the love of God. There will be fun skits, games, great music, and engaging activities for both girls and boys.

High school youth will be leaders for the weekend, mentoring the middle school students throughout the retreat. Adult leaders will be present to help in all areas and to mentor the high school students. Parents are welcome to come help with any area they wish to serve. Parents that serve do not have to stay overnight.

This weekend is grounded in prayer. There will be a Prayer Chapel available throughout the weekend for leaders and parents.

Chrysalis

WHAT IS CHRYSALIS?

Chrysalis is the name chosen for the youth version of The Walk to Emmaus, its parent movement, because it symbolizes the spiritual growth that is essential between adolescence and adulthood. That growth is as crucial for youth as the cocoon is for the caterpillar. It is that precious time of nurturing a person's faith for discipleship.

This three-day spiritual retreat provides an opportunity for you to learn more about faith, to experience Christian love and support, and to make new faith commitments. The point is to inspire, challenge and equip you for a closer friendship with Christ and for Christian action at home, church, school, and community.
