Youth Ministry @ MSUMC

 All teenagers can find a place to belong at MSUMC. Our goal is to provide an environment that allows our teenagers to have fun, serve the needy and grow their faith and knowledge of the Bible. Young people at this Church love Jesus and love showing an unbelieving world what He is like. Middle and High School students meet every Sunday, 6:00pm in the Family Life Center (FLC) for fun, food, and spiritual growth. Retreats, camps, service and mission projects are part of the youth ministry experience throughout the year. Since the FLC includes a gym and a pretty cool youth room, you’re likely to see teenagers there a lot!  See our monthly updated calendar below!
