YOUTH

Here at Central UMC, we strive to provide a welcoming environment where students can find themselves and find God together. Through fellowship, discipleship, and mission opportunities, we will grow with one another as we live out and study the teachings of Christ. Jump in anytime, you are always welcome! Be sure to check out our Youth Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Central-Youth-Shelby-2226774027375814/

Monthly Discipleship Resource Kits

Next Kit will be sent out on November 1st

The first week of each month, we will be providing Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry families with discipleship resources for the month including Sunday School lessons, music, crafts, and other supplies. This will be supplemented with videos and social media posts done by Savanna and Danny.

 

Outdoor Small Group Gatherings

Thank you to everyone who participated in our youth service day at Camp Tekoa Foothills! It was muddy and wet, but we enjoyed spending the afternoon together and we are able to clear out the bamboo forest and make space for new campsites.

Family Day Camp

As you can see, we had an awesome time axe throwing, hiking, boating, and just enjoying our time together at Camp Tekoa Foothills. Many thank yous to all who participated, especially Tekoa Foothills for letting us share their wonderful space. If you weren’t able to join us, stay in the loop for many more family opportunities to come!

Check out their website for all of the events that are available this fall. They’re offering day passes, tent camping and a LOT of adventure! https://tekoafoothills.org/

 

 

Meet us on ZOOM!

We’ll be taking a break from online meetings during the summer.

Children and Youth Resource Page

While we are in social distancing/stay at home mode, here is a link to a Google Doc that Savanna has compiled of resources to hopefully make sheltering at home a bit less stressful and a little more fun. There are all kinds of things on it, and she will be continually updating it as she finds things worth adding! So, keep this link handy for when you need some home life inspiration. If you know of good resources that are not on this list, please let her know and she will add them so everyone else can benefit. Children and Youth Resource Page

Sunday School
3rd Floor Sanctuary. Youth long for leaders to guide and encourage them.  As they study the early kings of the Hebrew faith, they will understand what God looks for in leadership… and how they can be faithful and faith-filled leaders.

UMYF
Youth fellowship meets on Sunday nights from 5:30-7:00 pm. The night begins with dinner, activities and games progressing to worship, Bible Study, and small groups. We do tons of different activities on Sunday nights throughout the year, including: Bible Study, Game Nights, Youth Rallies, Holiday Parties, and/or Mission Activities.
