Youth Programs

 

Amelon UMC provides youth programs for 6th through 12th grade.

We strive to teach our youth about God’s love, acceptance, and expectations as a Christian. We help our youth find his or her own identity in Christ and learn how to truly rely on God through all of life’s challenges. Our goal is to equip our youth to go out into the world and live a Christ-like life and to be an example in all that they say and do.

We welcome all youth to join us Sunday evenings from 6:00-7:30 for a time of fellowship, games, food, and growth.

Great job guys, we are so proud of you!
