Holy Relationships

Helping youth develop Christ-Centered Relationships

St Paul Youth Ministry is designed to meet the fellowship and spiritual needs of youth in grades 6th –12th, through worship, study, missions and recreation. Our goal is to help young people take ownership of their faith and grow in the Family of God. Our Youth Group is more than just a ministry of the church, rather they are vital members of our Church Family, without whom we would be incomplete in our mission and service to God.

 Summer Programming

High School (rising 9th-grads)

This summer looks different than most. We are trying to have all of our regular meetings in outside spaces and venues and do the best social distancing that we can.

Our high schoolers will meet every Thursday from 4-5:15 PM. We’ll be walking through Richard Foster’s “Celebration of Discipline” this summer and learning about spiritual practices that can enrich our faith! 

Make sure you’re added to our newsletter by emailing youth@stpaul-lakeland.org so you can stay up-to-date on where we meet each week.

Middle School (rising 6th-8th)

This summer looks different than most. We are trying to have all of our regular meetings in outside spaces and venues and do the best social distancing that we can.

Our middle schoolers will meet every Tuesday from 10-11:15 AM. We’ll be looking at specific Bible verses and passages that EVERY middle schooler should take to heart and learn! These verses will guide our discussion as we form a foundation of what it means to follow Jesus. 

Make sure you’re added to our newsletter by emailing youth@stpaul-lakeland.org so you can stay up-to-date on where we meet each week.

Extra Events

We are in the midst of planning other youth activities, from movie nights to kayaking excursions, but we must do this with caution during this summer of COVID. Keep reading the newsletter to stay informed on additional youth activities.

Metro & Conference Youth Involvement

We connect with other Youth Groups from the United Methodist Memphis Conference and from our Metro District throughout the year. By attending retreats and gathering designed to help our young people reconize that they are part of a larger body of believer both within the United Methodist Church and with the Beloved Community of Believers around the world. 

We connect with the Memphis Conference Youth through attending the Fall Conference Spiritual Retreat at Lakeshore UMA and participating in other local events.
