Supporting all youth in grades 6 through12
MYF - You Belong Here - Summer.png

The Aldersgate Youth Ministry Program welcomes and embraces the youth of the Aldersgate UMC family and its community. All youth are welcome -- you don't have to be a Methodist or a member of Aldersgate to participate in your Youth Ministries.

The Student Ministries at Aldersgate UMC include Aldersgate Youth Group (grades 7-12) and the Confirmation Program (grades 6+). Both programs provide an opportunity for our youth to have fun, build new relationships, perform service in the community and beyond, and grow in their faith in a supportive and encouraging environment.

For more information, please contact Andreas Barrett, Director of Student Ministries (abarrett@aldersgate.net).

Confirmation Program

The Confirmation Program at Aldersgate UMC is an opportunity for students to respond to the workings of God's grace in their lives. The goal of the Confirmation Program is for students to begin to understand for themselves what it means to be a Christian and a member of God's Church. Upon completion of the class, students will be given the opportunity to profess their faith and become church members.

Throughout the course of the class, students will discover what it takes to follow Christ and to model Christ's love and mercy to the world by participating in interactive class sessions, service projects, worship, and fall retreat. Students will also be paired with a mentor from the Aldersgate church family who will help our confirmands learn and grow in their faith.
