Youth ministries at Lovely Lane UMC range from 6th Grade to 12th grade.
Middle School Sunday School
at 9:15 am we have a class for Middle School. The lessons are hands-on learning, sometimes in the kitchen cooking and tasting, and sometimes behind the video camera giving a modern spin to an old, old story. For more information contact Barb Geissinger at email@example.com.
Youth Group for middle school and high school meets weekly from 6 pm to 7:30 pm on Sundays and is for youth grades 6-12. We rotate between games, lessons, service, and experiencing various spiritual practices. Our youth group participates in service projects and fundraisers, and every summer we take a pilgrimage mission trip. We’ve been to Minnesota, Missouri, South Dakota, Louisiana, and Colorado so far! For more information contact Pastor Kristina, firstname.lastname@example.org.
8th Grade Confirmation
Youth in 8th grade are invited to participate in Confirmation Class. It meets every Wednesday evening from September through April from 6:00-7:15 PM. Sessions are based on the Collaborate curriculum, learning about doctrine and theology, polity, and the history of the United Methodist Church. Field trips, mission opportunities, a fall retreat, and experiences like walking a labyrinth and working with a personal faith mentor round out the experience. Confirmation classes conclude with the Service of Confirmation. For more information contact Pastor Kristina at email@example.com.
This track is for youth older than 8th grade who have not yet been confirmed. They meet weekly with a Pastor on an agreed day and explore a personal relationship with Jesus, the Christian faith, the United Methodist Church, and engage in mission work. A special date is chosen to celebrate this group’s confirmation and church membership. For more information contact Pastor Kristina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
