Youth Group

Youth Group
Sundays at Noon
The UMCE Youth Group is a program specifically designed for young people in grades 6-12. Youth Group fosters close friendships in Christ and encourages young people to explore their spirituality in a safe, open environment.
All youth in Middle and High School are invited to join us for youth group on Sunday afternoons from Noon-3pm. We eat lunch together, share devotionals and fellowship time, play games, and learn a lot together.

Youth Summer Missions
Serving in mission is one of the most important parts of our UMCE Youth program. Every summer, the youth group takes a week-long mission trip. We participate in local, domestic, and international missions. In recent years we have conducted service projects in Montana, Oregon, Alaska, and Washington as well as Colorado-based mission projects in Denver, Evergreen, Alamosa, and La Veta. We have worked with Native American tribes, animal rescue organizations, homeless shelters, programs for survivors of domestic abuse, and many other types of projects. Who knows where God will send us next!

Confirmation is a process intended to aid young people in exploring their faith, asking questions, and coming to their own understanding of their relationship with God. It is the process through which young people make a formal commitment to Christ as expressed in membership in the church. We use a mentor model in the confirmation process in which the young people are paired with an adult member of the congregation to learn and grow together. All young people in 6th-12th grade are invited to be a part of confirmation. Our next confirmation class is tentatively scheduled for spring 2024.
