One of our loving nursery servants reads to our youngest worshipers.

At YUMC, we see ministry to children and youth as one of our greatest privileges and responsibilities. We also recognize that parents are the first pastors kids ever have. Therefore, we strive to invest in the WHOLE family, so that everyone is growing in their relationship with God. On Sunday mornings, we have nursery care for little ones, and programming for preschool and elementary age kids.  They are cared for and taught by loving individuals, all of whom have undergone “safe sanctuaries” training.
Youth Group
Our youth (middle and high school students) meet every other Sunday afternoon from 3:30-5pm in the youth room. We strive to incorporate Scripture, real-life conversations, and some laughter at each meeting. We also incorporate children and youth into various aspects of our worship services because we see them as valuable members of our church body. Every young person needs at least five adults to be on his/her “team,” cheering them on in life and faith.  We are grateful to join parents on their kids’ teams!   If you’d like more specific details on our youth ministry, please email Pastor Kate at
