Impact

Being a teen today is very challenging. You may be facing added responsibilities at home, tougher grading policies in school, and your friends may be changing. Grappling with real life issues requires truth, and all signs point to God. Our goal is to help you build spiritual foundations you can rely on for a lifetime and beyond. This is accomplished through sharing your faith, igniting a generation to serve Jesus Christ, growing in the Word and your relationship with Christ, Networking with other teenagers, and Serving God and His church.

Stay Connected

Join our Youth Impact Group on Facebook.  This is a great way for our youth & leaders to stay connected.  It is a Facebook group to help communication with youth & parents of YOUTH IMPACT students. It is there to offer encouragement to others through devotions. Keep updated on events, activities, fundraisers, meetings, etc. Discussion & Support is only a click away.

Youth Impact is going strong! We meet regularly on Sundays from 4:30-6:30pm in the FUMC basement. Our time together is different from one week to the next, but we try to include a mix of games, small group time, prayer, and activities that grow our faith.

Youth Impact is going strong! 

We meet on Sunday nights from 4:30 to 6:30 PM in the FUMC Basement.  Activities vary from week to week, but there is usually some combination of food, games, and spiritual-growth too.  All students in grades 6-12 are welcome.  Bring a friend!  In December, we will meet as usual on Dec. 2, 9, and 16, but then we won’t meet again
until Sunday, January 6. 

Also note that on December 16, we will be Christmas Caroling* from 1 to 4 PM (families are welcome to join us), and then the Youth will have a Christmas party at the usual 4:30-6:30 PM time.  Bring a wrapped gift (worth $5 or less) for a fun “White Elephant” game!

*If you know anyone who would enjoy some Christmas Caroling, please let Chelsea in the Church Office know.  We will compile a list of homes for caroling!
