We are committed to the spiritual development of all students and encourage youth to have a thriving relationship with Jesus Christ.

Committed leaders, who love God, are part of our team to make sure that students feel loved and cared for. Being a parent can be lonely, exciting and scary. We want you to know that you are not alone. We would like to invite your youth (grades 7th-12th) to join us at any of our weekly or special events to be a part of what God is doing at Faith’s Youth Ministries. Questions? Contact our Director of Youth Ministries, Jeff Ackenback, at .

Faith Community’s Confirmation program is a way for students in 9th grade or above to learn more about their faith and the Methodist church, as well as the world around them and how to cope. Classes run from September – February at 4:00 pm each Sunday. On a Saturday evening in early March, we host our annual Confirmation Dinner where students share their personal statements of faith. The following morning is Confirmation Sunday where the students are confirmed during worship. Questions? Contact Jeff Ackenback at
