YOUTH SPIRITUAL FORMATION JUST CAUSE

The Youth Ministry with First United Methodist Church is striving to make better students, leaders, and followers of Christ, for the betterment of our world. We are achieving this by teaching relevant lessons, engaging in deepening conversations, inviting all people, growing healthy relationships and serving all within our community. By embracing the challenges of adolescence, messy spirituality, and the holy art of play, we provide a space for discovery with the continual and overwhelming presence of God’s Grace and Love.

 

If you have any questions about upcoming events or anythings having to do with 719FUMY, don't hesitate to connect with our Director of Youth Ministries, Zach Walker! (Phone: 719.471.8522; Email: zachw@fumc-cs.org)
