FUMC Wilson has an exciting and dynamic youth program that serves 6th - 12th graders. Our youth are being formed into disciples of Jesus Christ through relationships centered on Christ and loving on another. We help people connect to God and one another through youth group, small groups, Sunday School classes, mission trips, retreats and more. All of our youth activities find opportunities to promote service and fellowship in Christ.
Our youth mission trip this summer is available for any upcoming 9th-12th grade student. The trip will be June 20-24. We are serving in James Island, South Carolina, and will be staying at Bethany UMC. We will be assisting Habitat for Humanity and working on housing repairs. The cost for the week will be $80. Additional money will be needed during the week to eat out a few times. Scholarships are available! Please see Tiler if you need assistance. The deadline for registration is June. 6
This is a gathering each Sunday evening for grades 6-12 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. We start out in fellowship with one another over a meal, gather for a devotion together in large group, break into small groups by gender and grade to dig more into God's word and different ways to apply it to our lives, and then come back together for more fellowship and games.
In our daily lives and at all our meetings and events we commit to: Respect God, Respect God's Word, Respect Others, and Respect Yourself. Youth Ministry at FUMC Wilson is committed to being a safe place - we have a lot of fun and do some crazy things but never at the expense of these principles. You never know what will happen at youth group - but you can count on a positive Christ centered experience with plenty of opportunities to just hang out with folks who know and care about each other.
During the many changes in our lives it is very important that we dig into God's word and learn how to apply it to our lives. Our youth class offers the opportunity to grow in our relationship with Christ as well as others. We gather each Sunday and focus on characters in the Bible, their issues and how they survived. This is a time of discussing and getting into God's word together. Middle and High School classes meet upstairs in Blackburn.
