Sunday School
     Every Sunday morning, from 9:45-10:45am, our youth meet together in a time of fellowship and sharing.  Sunday School engages the youth in conversations about the issues that shape the world around them and how they identify with the stories of faith found in scripture. Classes are divided by Junior High (7th-8th grades) and Senior High (9th-12th grades).
 
Sunday Night Youth Program
     Reflections Bells & Choir (will resume in August)
Our Reflections Choir and Reflections Bell Choir gather as part of our Sunday night youth activities during each school year, in addition to learning music we learn about sharing our faith through making music. We participate often in morning worship services and also as part of Sunday night youth worship, and other special church events.

     AUMY Sunday Night (5:22-7:02pm during the summer)
Our weekly Sunday Night Aldersgate United Methodist Youth (AUMY) program features a diverse mix of meaningful activities for youth.  We spend time every Sunday night., in fellowship over a meal, learning how to share ourselves with each other through our gifts and stories.  We sing and worship together, learning how to articulate our faith.
 
Wednesday Night Small Groups
     Senior High and Junior High Covenant Groups meet from 6:00-7:30 p. m. every Wednesday night during the school year and are a great way for students to come together in the midst of chaotic schedules and uncertain futures.  We unwind with each other in times of fun and group discussions.
 
Summer Mission Opportunities
Our annual summer youth mission trips are great opportunities for youth to answer God’s calling of service in our world.  Both Junior High and Senior High Youth students raise funds all year long for the opportunity to serve hands-on in another part of the country. We journey to many places, seek to understand what God might be doing there, and strive to share Christ through love and service wherever we find ourselves.
