Middle School Youth Group

Our Middle School Youth Group is a shared ministry with Puffer United Methodist Church. We meet on the second and fourth Fridays of the month in the Community Youth Center in the lower level of our church. In a safe and welcoming atmosphere, youth are taught to live out their faith, beginning with personal prayer and prayer for one another. During the gathering time, they share prayer requests and we have a brief Bible Study. They are encouraged to practice Jesus’ teaching: “Treat others as you would want them to treat you”, during the youth group time, carrying it into their daily lives. 

Activities have included group-building exercises, playing games with one another, scavenger hunts, a “Sharing God’s Gifts” Talent Show, walking the labyrinth during Lent, and hiking Elmore Mountain.

They also participate in service projects such as serving at a soup kitchen and a community meal, and visiting the elderly at the Manor Nursing Home. 

All youth of our community and beyond are welcome to join us! Group leaders are Sara Haskins, laity from Puffer Church, Carol Calenberg, laity from First Congregational Church, and Rev. Marisa, the Pastor of First Congregational Church. For more information, please call Rev. Marisa at 888-2990.
