Youth Ministries

Growing together

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

PUMC Youth are a community of teenagers committed to: seeking God with all our heart, to growing spiritually in relationship with Jesus Christ, to living a life worthy of our calling, to strengthening our unity in the Body, and to sharing the Word we've received with our friends and neighbors.

PUMC Youth is a relational ministry that emphasizes living in Christ through a variety of Worship, learning, and hands on serving and leadership development activity. In addition, we never shy away from incorporating good times and clean fun in the things we do. Worship for youth delivers upbeat praise and relevant messages that encourage teenagers to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and make God’s word relevant in their lives. The youth calendar regularly includes opportunities to participate in local service ministries, weekend youth retreats, out-of-state and international Mission trips, Summer Camp, A High Adventure Wilderness Camp in Ontario, and several leadership opportunities. Our objective is to connect contemporary teenagers with Christ in actionable ways by guiding them on a spiritual growth journey as they build a solid foundation for the years to come.
