First UMC Youth

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we are following CDC and state guidelines.  We are also following guidelines set out by our Bishop in the Western North Caroline Conference of the United Methodist Church.  We have multiple opportunities online that change weekly.  The zoom meeting links are emailed out and sent via remind.  If you would like to learn more information about our programs, please reach out to Stephanie Jenkins at

Summer Mission Weeks

This summer we are adapting to the global pandemic and will be serving locally in Gaston County in partnership with Carolina Cross Connection.

Mid-Hi Week:  July 13-17

Sr-Hi Week:    July 20-24

We will have three groups comprised of 10 people each that meet at the church each morning at 8:30am.  Most days we will have a short devotion, then head out to our project with our group.  In the evenings we will have dinner as a group, then connect online for worship with the many different groups that are also serving with Local.  We look forward to serving the greatest need in Gaston County.  Cost is $150 for each participant.  Scholarships are available.
