Background Checks: Anyone who serves in any capacity with minors (nursery-senior high) must have a cleared background check on file! We rerun checks every 2 years for the nursery and every 3 years for preschool and older volunteers. If you think you may be due, or want to volunteer in any of our nex-gen ministries for the first time, please check with Kim Moore to get set up. Help us keep GUM safe for our kids!
What can my youth expect on Sunday mornings?
Youth in grades 7 through 12, gather in the GUMchurch youth room at 10:30am for Sunday School (divided by junior high and high school).
Sept – May Sunday Evening Surge
During the school year (September-May), Sunday evening programming generally runs from 6:30pm to 8pm and includes Youth group, Small Groups and a Service Night. Click below to learn more about each:
Power Surge - 1st Sunday of each month
Power Surge youth group meets on the first Sunday evening of each month at 6:30pm. This is a fun, social activity that gives the youth a chance to really get to know all of the youth and the leaders while having a ton of fun!
Small Groups - 2nd & 4th Sundays of each month
The youth split into smaller groups based on age and gender and work adult leaders to have in-depth discussions on lots of different topics. The youth really enjoy the opportunity to be able to share their thoughts with peers in a safe, confidential place that is void of judgement.
