First United methodist youth

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.

All First UMC Youth are invited to join us for Pilgrimage 2018 on November 8th 10th! The Pilgrimage Ministry has been bringing 5000+ youth (in the 6th – 12th grades) and their mentors to the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, NC for 25 years. It is a life-changing weekend event filled with amazing artists, thought provoking speakers, and inspiring youth leadership: all bearing witness to the transforming love of Christ.  Youth cost is $102 and you may sign-up and pay here.  We have funds available and never want cost to keep a young person from attending a youth trip.  Contact alysunskinner@fumcwilson.org with questions or for youth trip assistance. Also, we are asking that youth wanting to attend Pilgrimage to come to Youth Group or Sunday School at least twice before the trip. It is important for adult leaders to get to know the youth before chaperoning them out of town.

Youth Group

This is a gathering each Sunday evening for grades 6-12 from 5:15-7:15 p.m. We begin with a fellowship meal at 5:15 and programming begins at 6:00. 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.

Sunday School


  • Middle/High School (6TH-12TH GRADE)

    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.
