Student Ministries




  • Wednesday Night Youth: First United Methodist Church offers a ministry to our community’s junior and senior high youth. During the school year, students meet weekly.  The Junior high, 6th through 8th grade students, meet from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m, on Tuesday nights. Senior high, 9th through 12th grade students, meet on Wednesdays from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Dinner is included on both nights. Students can expect fun activities, good food, and a lesson or small group discussion.
  • Summer Mission Trip: Each summer, members of our church and community accompany youth on a mission trip where they serve others, give aid and hope, and share the Love of Christ.
  • Confirmation: Every other year we offer confirmation classes for our students in either 7th or 8th grade. Contact the church office for more information. (618) 242-1030
