Curious about Student Ministry and looking for an entry point? This is it! IMPACT is our weekly fellowship for youth in 6th through 12th grade. There is time for fellowship, creative games, and a lesson each evening. It’s a non-pressure-super-awesome-good-time-for-everyone-program.
Join other mission-minded youth for fellowship each Wednesday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Aldersgate’s Student Ministry Center. You won’t be disappointed!
Teen Sunday School gives us a unique opportunity for us to connect with teens. We take the opportunity to help students explore how the truths of God’s Word connect with the issues that they are dealing with in their lives. Most weeks our lessons discuss that week's liturgical scipture. We divide our Sunday school by age (Middle School and High School) and dig deep into hot topics. Read Aldersgate’s Safe Sanctuary covenant.
Our Student ministry believes that mission work is an extremely important aspect of ministry. Every year our students take part in a large mission trip during the Summer. In July 2012 we attended Week of Hope in Newark, NY. In 2013 we served in Jamaica through Praying Pelican Missions. In 2014 we served in Spirit Lake, ND alongside UMC missionaries. In 2015, we served in Manassas, VA with Group, and in 2016 we served in the Bahamas with Praying Pelican.
Aldersgate’s confirmation program is designed for 7th graders and above to explore the Christian Faith within the United Methodist tradition. Confirmation gives students the opportunity to learn about their faith and to continue the process of making it their own. In addition to weekly sessions, confirmation students are involved in off-site trips, outreach projects and other activities. At the end of the instruction period, confirmands are invited into membership of the church.
