Inviting All Youth

If you hang out with the youth at FUMCR, you will definitely get a weird vibe. . . . From the crazy games to the strange and interesting topics we discuss, you would notice that this is not an ordinary YoUTh gRoUP!

But that's not the only thing weird about us. Originally the word weird was an old Viking Term used to describe how every person and action is connected — how every choice we make, everything we do has an effect on the people and things around us. . . . We are strange, we are odd, we are fun to be around, and most importantly, we are connected to one another by the Love of God.

  • Sunday School
    Sunday School

    9:45 am every Sunday

    Sunday school plays a vital role in helping to build a solid foundation for the faith journey of our 7th-12th graders. We gather first as a large group in our worship space, then divide into high school and junior high classes

    Seventh graders learn the fundamentals of the Christian faith and United Methodist history with the goal of growing more like Christ, loving God and our neighbor in all that we do. Mission opportunities, church visits, and a late-night event allow the group to have fun and serve together. Contact Melanie Jackson for more information. MJackson@fumcr.com
