AUMC Youth Discipleship Groups

What are Dgroups?

Youth Midweek meets throughout the year on Wednesdays.
September through April Dgroups are part of our Wednesday Midweek programming. Dgroups are the small groups of Auburn UMC Youth Ministries. Dgroups are for students who want the support of an encouraging small group community, in addition to Sunday School and Sunday evening events. Dgroups are gender- and grade-specific, led by adult and college leaders.

On Wednesdays, the Youth Center opens at 4pm for students to hang out, study, charge a cell phone, etc. Students are welcome to have dinner with us at 5:30pm for $5 or walk downtown on their own. We will gather at 6:30pm in the Youth Center and breakout to Dgroups at 7pm.

If you would like to hear more about what to expect at Dgroup this year or how to reconnect if you were not in a group last year, please contact Lindsey Middleton, lindseym@aumc.net.

General Information
