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.
Upcoming Youth Events
Our Sunday school programming is called Kickstart, and it meets every Sunday AM from 9:30 to 10:20 in the Youth Lounge. This program is guided by Bible-based curriculum, where we study different parts of the Bible through games, videos, discussion, and more!
Right now we’re working on series about prayer and different prayer practices our youth can implement in their daily lives.
Come join us Sunday mornings to study the Word!
St. Paul Youth Group’s primary youth gathering!
Sunday Rewind will take place most every Sunday afternoon of the school year! We’ll meet in the gym and youth lounge from 4-6 PM and will play games, worship, and have a discussion together.
This semester’s theme for Youth Fellowship is called Lifelines and we are studying what it means to have friendships that act as lifelines. Friendships are complex and have lots of moving parts. We are exploring what it means to be a friend and to have friends that you can trust and rely on.
Midweek Meetups are getting a change this year! We will be switching up the day and location for these events to get out into the community and work with everyone’s busy schedules. These events are designed to be a time of fellowship with one another and checking in on everything going on in our student’s lives. Keep an eye on the newsletter and the Group Me for more information about these events.
If you’d like to be added to the Group Me or Newsletter please let Alison know!
The youth will help out with the rest of our St Paul family with our living nativity. This event will take place on December 2nd and 3rd from 6-8 in the St Paul parking lot. It will be a great way to reach out to our Lakeland community and a fun event for the youth to be involved with!
More Events to Come in the Spring
We will have lots more youth events coming to you in the Spring but are well underway with our fall semester. We would love to have your student join us for any and all of our programming. If you or your student is interested in learning more about our programs, youth group, or St Paul in general, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
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 recognize 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 by attending the
Fall Conference Spiritual Retreat at Lakeshore UMA and participating in other local events.
