The Youth ministry at ZUMC is led by director Allison Milliron, and our trained & experienced Student Adult Leadership Team (SALT). Allison is available throughout the week at her office at church, or by text, phone or email.
Youth Sunday School: Youth currently meet in the Large Room in the Children's wing at 10am. Students eat a snack, share highs & lows from their week, and then watch & discuss the Bible Project Book Overview videos, concluding with prayer.
UMYF (United Methodist Youth Fellowship) 4-6:30pm Sundays: All Junior High and Senior High youth are invited to join us for UMYF on Sunday evenings from 4-6:30pm. Each week of the month we rotate through the following types of activities: Game Nights, Mission Nights, Bible Study Nights, Outings, Worship Nights, & Small Groups. We always provide a meal, a devotional word, and time for just hanging out with each other. Friends are always welcome!
Youth Praise Team- We are in the beginning stages of forming a youth praise team at ZUMC, and we will launch this group in September 2022. 7th-12th grade students will meet to share in spiritual leadership training, music training and rehearsal. Students do not have to be musically inclined to join - we need sound & media techs, designers, administrators, artists, speakers, and more. We can also teach if there is an interest in learning an instrument. Once proficient, students will lead our youth in praise & worship during special Worship Nights at UMYF. We hope to add liturgical dance as we grow in our proficiency. All music, binders, and snacks/drinks will be provided.
Daily Online Devotionals: Every morning, students are encouraged to participate in daily reading plans through the YouVersion Bible App. A new plan invitation is sent out on Sunday which we do together throughout the week. Participants are able to communicate with each other and their adult leaders through these plans. Download the YouVersion Bible App and “friend” Allison Milliron to be included in the devotion plan invitations.
BIG 2023 Summer Mission REVEAL Night will be Sunday September 18, 2022. The Youth will be headed to a new destination in July 2023 for a week of mission, study, adventures, worship and surprises as we engage the theme “Overflow."
