Youth

St. Luke’s Youth Ministries believes in the ACCEPTANCE of ALL! We welcome you with loving HOSPITALITY into our Christ-Centered COMMUNITY, so that together we can grow in DISCIPLESHIP and SERVICE to others.

We invite you to come and be a part of our weekly youth ministry programming here at St. Luke’s! We are excited to connect and engage with our youth and our adult leaders in Community, Worship, and Grade Groups. We want you to come and take part in all God is doing here as we continue to create a Christ-Centered group for middle and high school students where You Belong to Beloved Community, You Grow to Awaken Disciples, and You Serve to Reveal The Kingdom.

     @StLukesUMCYouth

Each week (August-May) after a time of connection and worship, we will break off into Grade Groups. There, we will have fun and dive deep as we engage in relevant discussions about faith and how it impacts our lives and those around us.

Our amazing team of adult leaders plays a vital part in this as we strive for authentic relationships and connection with our youth, leading to real “Be 1 of 5” discipleship and giving them a sense of belonging.

If you’d like to be a Grade Group Leader, a Connect Host (a new opportunity to serve and connect with our youth),
or another youth ministry volunteer opportunity,
please email Brandon at bsangster@st.lukes.org.

Let’s chat about the week’s message over your favorite bowl of cereal (various kinds of cereal and milk options will be available). Both middle and high school youth are welcome to join.


High School Life Groups is something new we are starting this year and looking for leaders to connect with a group of high schoolers on a weekly basis outside of HIGHPOINT (our normal youth programming time). These groups will be/form various affinity-based communities and held in The Youth Center or a fitting public place. These groups will meet with a couple of adult leaders weekly for connection and discussion over some fun commonality — again, think youth affinity group. The leaders will schedule the day and time for their group.

Info on High School Life Groups will be shared as groups are formed.
