“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” ~ 1 Timothy 4:12
Who We Are…
The youth group at First United Methodist Church consists of many different youth from the Decatur area who attend several . different schools. Like most youth groups, we like to fellowship and eat together. We also enjoy bible study, discussions and retreats. We have several fundraisers a year to help cut back on costs of mission trips. Each summer our Junior High and Senior High groups go away for a week on a mission trip. Along with our mission trips, our youth participate in local service and mission projects as well. If you are not a member of a youth group in Decatur, we hope you will come visit us for youth!
Our youth meet several times a week for study, fellowship, food and fun! On Sunday mornings we meet from 9:00-9:45am for Sunday school. On Sunday nights we meet at 6:00pm for supper. Following supper at 6:30, we have UMYF (United Methodist Youth Fellowship) where we participate in different activities. On Wednesday nights (August- April), our church has First Fellowship dinner for the congregation at 5:00pm. Following dinner at 6:00pm, the Junior and Senior High groups have Bible study, discussion and games.
