"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity." 1 Timothy 4:12
What is UMYF?
UMYF stands for United Methodist Youth Fellowship.
On Sundays at UMYF, you can expect to enjoy food, fun, and fellowship. UMYF involves a lesson from scripture, great food, and fun games. We play everything from volleyball, basketball, Catch Phrase, and a FUMC Van Alstyne special game called GROG. On Wednesday evenings join us for P.U.S.H!
What is Our Youth program like?
Our youth program is like having brothers and sisters you didn't know you had. God has called us all to follow teachings set forth by Christ. In doing so we need to constantly seek out other individuals to be around, to be able to discuss and share our struggles with. The youth program at FUMC Van Alstyne is designed in such a way that you are able to come and build a relationship not only with your Heavenly Father, but other youth that you can count on when life doesn't work out the way you thought.
Who can participate?
All youth 7th-12th grade
What do we have to offer Jr. High/High School students?
Most of our events are together except for Sunday school. We do have special events throughout the year that focuses directly on Jr. High or Sr. High youth. These events are either a mission trip, camp out, Sunday fun event, or special bible studies.
When and where do we meet?
The Youth Lounge located upstairs in the Sanford Activity Center is our central meeting location; however, some events during the year require us to meet offsite.
What do our Youth do outside of church?
If we are not worshiping or fellowshipping together here at the church, we can be found participating on mission trips throughout the summer or serving our community through volunteer work. We also enjoy events like concerts, flag football, movies, swimming, and camping.
