WORSHIP SERVICES: 8:15am Traditional | 9:30am Contemporary | 11:00am Traditional

Welcome to Covenant UMC’s Youth Ministry

Who are we?  We’re athletes, we’re singers, we’re into drama, we’re musicians, we play video games, we are shy, outgoing and overwhelmed. We are searching for something more.  We want answers to life’s questions like ‘Why am I here?  What is my purpose in life? How do I deal with disappointment and pain?  Why would God allow bad things to happen?  How do I deal with my doubts?’

We all have questions and our youth group is about searching for these answers in community.  When we meet, we talk about life.  When we mess up, we are there for each other and remind each other of God’s grace and love and how nothing we do can separate us from His love.

We want to help you connect to Jesus.  When that happens our lives are turned upside down but in a good way. We’d love for you to join us.  Come as you are.  You are always welcome.
