Service

Every summer we pack our bags, load the vans, and head out to share the love of God in mission and service. The dates and destinations vary by summer and age group. Past trips include: Oregon, Louisiana, New Mexico and Wyoming. The work we do also varies but includes: light construction, debris pickup, Vacation Bible School, fellowship with the elderly and painting.


First United Methodist Youth are also active in the local community serving at Food for All, raking leaves for the elderly and various other activities during the year.

  • Mid High

    Mid High Youth Group, Sundays 4:00-6:00pm

    Life is a journey, let’s travel together. After gathering in the Youth Range, 6th-8th grade students meet for an evening of games, skits, snacks, and an interactive look at God’s Word. Together we will explore the Old and New Testaments for stories of God’s radical love and faithfulness and how they apply to our every day lives. Each Sunday we will dig deeper into our lives and find our own stories of God’s radical love and faithfulness. Come and join us on the journey of discovery!


    Our Adult advisors are Ben Clegern, Mariah Diediker, Abbi Flaming, Judy Graff and Wally Lankford.
