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 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.

Elevate is held every Tuesday night from 6:30 - 8:30 as part of our Stepping Forward program, and is open to grades 6th–12th.


Confirmation is a time for students to sincerely examine their faith, learn what it means to be a member of the Church (both the Body of Christ and the United Methodist Church), and to confirm or reaffirm their baptism and faith publicly. Our next Confirmation class will begin in Fall 2019.
