In the United Methodist Church our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. That includes people of all ages, and we want to take seriously the call to make disciples of the youth in our community. To do that, we are launching The 167, a collaborative community youth group that will meet on Sunday nights from 5:30-7:30p.m. at one of the local United Methodist Churches in our city. Heading up this undertaking is Aaron Osborne from Christ United Methodist Church and Melissa Kramer from Trinity United Methodist Church. They are assisted by youth volunteers from each congregation and overseen by a team comprised of individuals from each church.
ALL students from 4th grade to 12th grade are welcome to come and experience an incredible time of fun, food, small groups, service, and much more.

Trinity, Grace, Christ, Congress St. and Brown St. are offering one combined confirmation class for all students 6th grade or older who would like to become members of their individual church. Confirmation is a two-year commitment, with one class a month (during the school year only), and occasional lock-ins and retreats (required). For information about confirmation, contact Melissa, Aaron, Pastor Tracey or one of the other pastors from the participating churches.
