Here at First United Methodist Church, we have an amazing group of young people that are part of Youth Ministry. In this group, there are those that are trying to decide if a life of faith is for them, those who are beginning to grow in a new relationship with Christ, and those who are deepening their walk with God. If you are willing to become a friend to others, dig deeper spirituallity, and serve humbly like Jesus did, this is a place for you to consider.
Our Youth area is in The Zone, in the South basement. We have a comfortable coffee house and a game room with pool table, ping-pong, foosball, video games and a snack bar. Come join us!

FUMC YOUTH RETREATS at JOHN WESLEY RANCH
We have at least two Youth Retreats at John Wesley Ranch Retreat Center each year. One is in the Fall and one in the Winter. The Ranch is FUMC's awesome get-away up in the mountains, just south of Divide, Colorado. These events focus on a specific topic for spiritual growth for the entire weekend with lots of food and fun mixed in.
All details are mailed out ahead of time, so make sure we have you on our mailing list by contacting Zach Walker at 719-471-8522 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Prior to a retreat, information will also be available here and in our publications. Consider joining us!

Youth Mission Trips
Serving others as Christ is one of the "big three" reasons our ministry exists (the other two reasons are "Inviting Friendships" and "Digging Deeper Spirituality"). Mission opportunities abound for our youth! There are times throughout the year to serve locally and each summer, we gather up all the energy and God's love we can to go out beyond our community to serve those in need. We often think we are "taking Christ" to others, but what we find He is already there within those we serve and relate to. Consider joining us and finding God by serving.
Dear Hope in an Envelope Supporter,
I want to thank you for believing in and supporting the young adults of our congregation. They will be sharing God’s grace in many contexts this summer and throughout the coming year. The goal is to raise funds for the future and to support the ongoing Missions of our community and the work these young adults will do. And with you, we can do it!
Although we are still navigating the ever-changing, summer schedules we still stand with resolve in our mission which has not changed; we will continue to INVITE fellowship, DIG deep spiritually, and SERVE all like Jesus did…its method just evolves.
We HOPE to gather this summer. We HOPE to serve together this summer. We have HOPE in Jesus and will be led into the future where the mission continues. Our campaign is from May 1 through May 19.
Simply donate what you are able. During our in-person campaigns in the past, you would have chosen an envelope numbered $1-$200. We are grateful for any amount you can give.
