The Evangel United Methodist Church Youth Program works hard to love, challenge, and encourage students to grow in their faith. Our youth ministries include sixth grade all the way through high school seniors. Our desire is to stimulate the spiritual growth of our youth through Bible-related, thought-provoking education. Ultimately, we hope to help our students develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and find a deeper understanding of God's plan for them. By providing youth with the resources they need to grow in worship, lead spirit-filled daily lives, and give them opportunities to witness and serve others, we help them discover a commitment to Jesus Christ, our community, and ourselves.
Both Junior or Senior High Sunday School is offered on Sunday mornings. We cover many topics in the Bible and in life and encourage open discussion. We will join the Worship Service at 8:49 AM for the opening praise set and then adjourn to our classrooms at about 9:10 AM.
Youth group includes fun activities along with great lessons. Senior High will meet either at 6 PM or 6:30 PM on Sunday nights as indicated on the calendar. Junior High will be invited for special occasions so watch the calendar for updates.
Youth Band and Youth Choir
Come join the youth band or youth choir for a great time sharing music. The Youth band includes 9th through 12th graders who play an instrument and the youth choir includes anyone who wants to sing in 6th grade through 12th grade. They will meet on Sunday Evenings as noted in the calendar.
Every summer, the Jr. High and the Sr. High groups go on their own mission trip. These trips give the youth the opportunity to meet youth from other churches, work with kids in more disadvantaged areas, help residents with yard work, build wheel chair ramps, visit nursing home residents, help in thrift stores or food shelves, and many, many more things. Then in August, they share some of their experiences in the Youth Missions Sunday service.
Dates: June 30th – July 5th, 2019.
The Senior High will be going to Benton Harbor, MI. where they will be remodeling a youth center and working with the local citizens.

Fundraisers are a great way for the youth at Evangel UMC to raise money to go on the Junior and Senior High mission trips as well as to connect with the congregation and community. Almost all of these fundraisers are annual events that are well loved among the Evangel family.
