Youth Group

Open Door Youth Group is a safe and welcoming place for youth (grades 6-12) to explore their faith.

Sunday Gatherings

The youth group  gathers on Sunday afternoons from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in a fun and supportive group to practice living out our faith through fellowship, worship, studying scriptures, praying for each other and reaching out in mission. Check their Facebook page for their monthly location.

This year our theme is “I Doubt It” and we will explore a series of questions related to our faith in God that have come from youth group members. We meet weekly for good food, challenging discussions, fun games, and community service projects.

Mission Projects and Camping

Each year the youth are given the opportunity to spend a week away on a mission trip and we participate in the United Methodist camping program both in the summer and winter. We would love to have you join us.

Saturdays of Service – Once a quarter, we gather together to go out to serve our community! Dates and activities can be found here.

Many other small mission projects come up throughout the year. Soup kitchens and Marion/Polk Food Share are two examples of this. Any youth are encouraged and welcome to participate. For more information and upcoming events, check out the youth’s Facebook page.
