PWYouth Night
Sunday Nights during the school year. 

This is the place to be for students! We gather for games, worship (lead by our awesome student band) and our absolute favorite thing….small groups! In small groups, students have the chance to explore faith, bring questions/doubts, and make friendships with other students in their grade.

Middle School Youth Night (grades 6-8) is from 5:00-6:15

High School Youth Night (grades 9-12) is from 6:30-8:00

The first Sunday of every month every meets at the same time which will be from 6:00-8:00!


The Breakfast Club
Sundays at 9:15 a.m.

Gather your friends and head to the Student Center on Sunday mornings for The Breakfast Club. Grab a breakfast treat and then go to the 9:00 Worship Service with your friends. For more information, please contact Janessa.


Confirmation Class
Sundays at 10:45 a.m. for students in grades 8-12

This is a class designed to help students dive deeper into faith. At the end of this class students take their baptism vows for themselves and become full voting members of the UMC. This class is open to anyone in grades 8-12, and we ask parents talk to students if they are ready to make the two commitments mentioned. This is an annual class that starts in the fall.
