YOUTH MINISTRIES

Within the family of Christian Education, Youth Ministries are devoted to mission, spiritual formation, leadership, and yeah FUN.  Friends are ALWAYS welcome.  The cornerstore of our program is the weekly Sunday night “Youth Group”.  Where friends are… ALWAYS welcome.  Additionally, we host a variety of activities including: Youth Worship, Lock-Ins, local trips for fun, 30-Hour Famine, as well as varied fundraisers. Summer is a time of service and mission through local opportunities with Christian Education / Vacation Bible School and the Annual Mission Trip (Maine 2017, Minnesota 2016, Chicago 2015…. what will be next Ecuador?).  Mission trips, where, you got it, friends are always welcome.  If you would like more information before checking out our programs, please contact Carol Ryan via church office.  If you are looking for specific information about on-going or upcoming events, please email our Youth Coordinator, youth@westlakeumc.org.

YOUTH LEADERSHIP

Youth Group is facilitated by our championing adult but leadership comes from our youth.  If you are interested in taking on some responsibility, representing your peers, we encourage you to seek a position on Youth Leadership Council.  Additionally, youth are welcome to participate in several of the church-wide committees.

 

Minions & Interns

For responsible (and awesome) and service-minded (and awesome), teens and young adults, our Christian Education program offers a multitude of service, mission, and training opportunities.  Internships especially in early childhood education and music provide teens/young adults opportunities to grow their spiritual gifts as our children enjoy more opportunities.
