Youth

If you are 12 to 18 years old, we have a group for you!
We have a wonderful open, welcoming Christian home for youth to grow spiritually and relationally.

We meet in person in Wesley Cottage on the 4th Sunday of each month, after the worship service (11:30am-12:30pm).  Get more info from Youth Minister Grace Brawn or Trish in the church office.

Mission trip being planned for Summer 2023

Our church plans to sponsor a mission project in Summer 2023 with the Sierra Service Project! We are putting our team together now.  To go as a team, we need at least 4 youth to be able to participate.  (Note, this is a change from the previous plan to do the project in summer 2022.)

The Sierra Service Project (SSP) was founded in 1975 and primarily works on repairing individual homes. Many are accessibility or weatherization related. All work is done outside the structure. SSP focuses on listening to and advocating alongside historically marginalized populations and communities. All participants must be COVID-19 vaccinated.

We are sponsoring a high school program open to students currently in 8th grade through graduating seniors. The youth are targeting a 6 night session, dates to be determined later. The location will be determined by SSP working with their partner communities in the Western USA.

We will be applying for an SSP Scholarship and doing fundraisers to help pay for the mission.

We are opening our MHUMC SSP Team to any teenage participants who feel a desire to serve. All participants are required to have parental participation in the information and planning communications and meetings. All participants are required to attend the monthly MHUMC SSP Team meetings, participate as possible in fundraisers, and follow all SSP and MHUMC SSP Team rules and procedures.

Please let relatives, friends and neighbors know of this amazing opportunity for their teenagers.
