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 on Wednesday nights. Junior high, 6th through 8th grade students, meet from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m, senior high, 9th through 12th grade students, meet from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., and dinner is served from 7:00 to 7:30 p.m. for both groups. Students attending on Wednesday nights can expect fun activities, lots of food, and a lesson or small group discussion.
  • Lesson Lunch and Such: During the summer months, students gather at the church at 10:30 a.m. for a lesson, then vote on a restaurant to go have lunch, and go out for fun. Some examples of, “and Such:” Holliday World, Cardinals Game, Swimming, Grilling Out, Getting Custard and more.
  • Summer Mission Trip: Each summer members of our church and community accompany youth on a mission trip to give service, aid, hope, and to share the Love of Christ with those we serve.
  • 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
