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

Youth Group

Youth selfieYouth 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,


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

Immersion Confirmation

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
