The Bible and Salvation

 
LOGOS
Each Thursday evening youth and adults gather for dinner, Bible study, a worship skill, and recreation time. The only rule of LOGOS is “Everyone is to treat everyone else as a child of God.” Much of the evening is broken up by grade, and teens create great friendships through the ministry. LOGOS is open to children from preschool thru 12th grade.

The Trinity And The Bible

 
SUNDAY SCHOOL
Every Sunday morning during the 9:25 worship service, teens gather to learn about how to develop a worldview rooted in truth and how to form a personal faith and relationship with Christ. 6-8 grade girls meet in the youth office; 6-8 grade boys meet in room 24; and the High School class meets upstairs in the Loft. And yes, donuts and snacks are often offered.

SERVICE
Our hope is that students have an opportunity not just to learn about the world outside of their own walls, but to experience it. We lead a number of service opportunities throughout the year highlighted by our summer mission trip. We work closely with the Nehemiah Mission, Laura’s Home, and other community-focused organizations to teach us and help us gain a wider worldview.

RETREAT
Every winter we take a trip to Camp Wanake for two nights to worship, play, eat, and pray together. The Winter Retreat centers around a different theme every year and allows youth to take time to learn more about who they’re becoming in Christ.

CONFIRMATION
This is a two-year program for youth which allows them to make a personal commitment to the Church and God. Classes cover a variety of Biblical and cultural topics relevant to teens, and has a handful of trips offered each year.

The safety and well-being of your children is our first priority. We continually revise our supervisory guidelines to make sure that all adults and volunteers working with the children at SUMC are trained and have received the appropriate background checks. A copy of our Safe Sanctuary Guidelines – with which all volunteers at SUMC receive training – is available here
