” I have commanded you to be brave and strong, haven’t I? Do not be alarmed or terrified, because the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9
Weekly Youth Group Meetings
On most Sunday evenings the Youth Group (grade 6-12) gather at the church for a time of snacks, fellowship and discussion. Some weeks we break out into middle school and high school groupings, while other times we have whole group discussions. Additionally on the first Sunday of the month we spend or time in mission either at the church or out in the greater community.
On Sunday mornings, throughout the school year, during the 10:30 worship service Middle School (Grades 6-8) and High School (Grades 9-12) Sunday School classes.
Every other year we also offer Confirmation Class for youth in Grades 8 and 9
CrossWise Youth Praise Band
Our Youth Praise Band, CrossWise, meets on Sunday mornings at 11:45 AM. Youth instrumentalists and singers are welcome. For more information, please contact Pastor Phil Rogers.
Throughout the year the youth at Longs Peak UMC participate in a number of local mission opportunities. In addition to that, each summer the youth participate in two short term mission trips, one for Middle School and one for High School.
YOUNG ADULT OPPORTUNITIES
Our main focus with young adult Ministries is to keep a connection between the church and our college students. We offer opportunities for fellowship and study during breaks from college, both Winter and Summer. We are open to adding more opportunities and finding new ways to connect with more young adults in our community and beyond.
In the past we have led several week long young adult mission trips, as well as supported young adults in the exploration of other mission opportunities. We encourage participation in adult mission trips, as well as various other volunteer opportunities.
Throughout the year Longs Peak UMC keeps connected with our college students through personal note cards filled with thoughts, prayers and a giftcard for a special treat. It serves as a way to let them know that they are in our thoughts and in our prayers!
