Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry

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.”

Methodist Youth Fellowship – Sundays, 5-7pm. At MYF we’ll have an activity at the church or around town for Jr. High and Sr. High students. We will also have a free snack dinner.  Be sure to stay tuned to email updates and social media to find out what we’ll be doing each night!

Morning Studies

Morning Studies – Tuesdays 7am. Bring breakfast and join us for Bible Study. Students can be dropped off at the Youth Center and we’ll drive ESS and AJHS students to school after the study. AHS students will drive themselves or catch a ride to school with another student.
