Youth Summer Mission Trips

  • Middle Schooler Youth will be venturing back to Blueprint Ministries in San Antonio, TX June 26-July 1st. We will spend the week helping to better the community with both our work and faith skills!
  • High School Youth will be attending Mountain T.O.P. (Tennessee Outreach Project) in Altamont, TN from July 16th- July 23rd. We will be driving this year like we used to do not that long ago and it’s going to be such a fun experience for all! Mountain T.O.P is all about connecting with the homeowners we will be assisting that week. We do devotionals and share meals with them and the rest of our team that includes a college summer staff member!

These trips are not just for our church members either! Friends and all are welcome on both trips!Please contact WUMC Youth Coordinator, Ashley Mangold, with any question.

Confirmation General Web Image copy.png

Confirmation

Confirmation is happening this year! Students, 7th graders and up, are invited to go through a process of learning, serving, and preparing to make public confirmation of their faith to the church community.

There will be 3 Sunday afternoon retreats here at the church campus, led by Pastor Tracey Beadle, Pastor Curt Davis, and Ashley Mangold - Youth Coordinator. Beginning Sunday, February 6th and continuing on Sundays, March 6th and April 3rd each retreat will follow the 11:15am worship service, taking place from 12:30-4:00pm and will include lunch and snacks. Meeting in the gym will give us the chance to spread out, move around and provide adequate physical distance between participants. The ideal is for students to participate in person, yet a hybrid option can be made available upon request. We will also have opportunities to learn from and serve with other communities of faith, from different religious backgrounds, during this time as well.

We are also looking for mentors to invest in our confirmands during this process. We know how inter-generational dynamics can contribute greatly to the spiritual growth and development of both students and mentors. Please reach out to Ashley if you have interest and questions about how to get involved.

If you would like to sign up your student or have further questions, please email our Youth Coordinator, Ashley Mangold.
