Auburn UMC’s Youth Ministry exists to lift up Jesus. It is our mission to build a Christ-centered community that makes and equips disciples to impact their world. We offer a wide variety of activities including worship, biblical teaching, small groups, mission projects, and annual retreats.
Our Core Values | Colossians 3:1-3
“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.”
Due to the pandemic over the past year and our youth students missing out on several youth events, all summer events with Auburn UMC Youth Ministry are open to rising 8-12th grade students and College Freshmen. Our rising 7th grade students will move up to Youth Ministry on Sunday, August 8.
