A gathering of youth in grades 6-12 that includes dinner, worship, small group discussion and games. We begin promptly at 5pm, eat dinner and then have a large group worship and message.

Youth serving as Acolytes is an important part of developing leadership within
our youth program. Contact Eric Hucker for training info.
Our 2018 Confirmation Class will begin meeting in January and classes will continue through April. Confirmation is open to all youth in the 7th grade or older who have not gone through confirmation. Confirmation students learn what it means to be a United Methodist Christian in today’s world using Scripture, Tradition, Reason and Experience as a guide in life decisions.
Youth Leadership Team
All youth are invited to participate in the Youth Leadership Team. This team helps the Pastor of Youth Ministries decide what topics the youth will focus on, what activities the youth will participate in and they help design and lead certain youth activities throughout the year.
Youth Fall Retreat
In November the youth travel to a local retreat center for a weekend away to be in fellowship, worship and to grow closer to God and as a group.
Summer Mission Trips
Each Summer our youth participate in an in-state Middle School missions trip for those entering 6-8th grades and an out-of-state High School missions trip for those entering 9th grade through graduating seniors. These trips offer our youth an opportunity to experience what it is like to be in service in the world and to show the love of Christ to those in need.
Every January, we travel to Springfield, Mo. to gather with other United Methodist Youth from the state of Missouri for a weekend of concerts, inflatable games, workshops and fun!
Youth Fund Raiser
Every year youth participate in fundraisers to help cover costs to our summer missions trips. Every fall, the youth host a cinnamon roll sale during the Mizzou Homecoming Parade. Every spring, the youth help prepare and serve a spaghetti dinner for the congregation.
Typically the week before school starts back in the fall, we gather for a variety of activities that might include a trip to a theme park, a service project, a lock-in or worship experience. This allows for us to have some last-minute summer joy together before the youth start back to school for the year.
