Youth Group

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

Youth Group

Sunday Afternoon Youth Group
The UMCE Youth Group is a program specifically designed for young people in grades 6-12.  The program fosters close friendships in Christ and encourages young people to explore their spirituality in a safe, open environment.  Sunday Afternoon Youth Group is the flagship program of the UMCE Youth Group.  All youth in Middle and High School eat lunch together and have fellowship from noon-3:00 pm.  We have a great time, play games, complete devotionals, and learn a lot together.


Youth Summer Missions
One of the most important parts of our UMCE Youth Program is youth missions. Every summer the UMCE Youth Group conducts a week long missions trip. We participate in local, domestic, and international missions. In recent years we have conducted service projects in Denver, Portland, Oregon, Evergreen, Chugiak, Alaska, Alamosa, Colorado, Spokane, Washington, and many more places! We have worked with Native American tribes, animal rescue organizations, homeless shelters, programs for victims of domestic abuse, and many other types of work. Who knows where God will send us next?

Special Events

The UMCE Youth Group is a vital part of the life of UMC Evergreen. While we have many programs designed specifically for our youth, we also participate in a number of church-wide activities. Our youth decorate the church for Christmas and serve the all-church Christmas Dinner. They serve as support staff for Vacation Bible School. They conduct all-church car washes during service, provide soup suppers and breakfast burritos, assist with the annual EverKids Easter Egg Hunt, work as part of the Fall Festival, participate in the Alternative Giving Fair, and much more. We have movie nights, overnight lock-ins, and special outings in the community too!
