Youth Activities at Farmington United Methodist Church
Disciples In God
The Farmington youth ministry is a comfortable, non-pressure place to ask the hard
questions about God and figure out the answers together. Students in 7th-12th grade are
invited to join this community who are all asking some of the same questions. Come
discover who Jesus is and get to know some new people in the process!
Our first priority is spiritual growth. We meet on Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30pm. Wednesday night
is a place to connect, get to know each other, and most importantly get to know Jesus. Community is
vital for following Jesus. We want to explore real topics and give students a voice on the issues they
face. It’s a place to experience Jesus with others who are going through some of the same challenges in
Our second priority as a youth ministry is to serve our church and community. Each month there are
opportunities for youth to share their skills throughout the church and out in the world as a group or as
individuals. The last Sunday of each month we choose a place in the community to serve and be the
hands and feet of Jesus. Annually, we do mission work in the inner city of Rochester, NY through Flower
City Work Camp which takes place during spring break week.
Our third priority is to spend some fun times together, create great memories, and foster a comfortable
environment where the youth can invite their friends to join us. Special programs like our winter
retreats and our summer trip to Kingdom Bound are designed to help students work through their faith
and have fun doing it. We also have periodic special events like move nights, games nights, birthday
bashes and whatever ideas the group might come up with!
