Welcome to the Youth Ministry at UUMC. Here you can expect to find a community of people in grades 6 through 12, from all corners of Austin, Texas. No matter who are you, where you are from, what you believe, who you love, or what you think – you are very, very welcome here! Our Youth Group likes to have fun, share stories, talk honestly with one another, make friends, volunteer our time, and go on overnight trips and retreats. If that is something you are interested in, please come and see for yourself what Youth Group is all about! We meet Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45am, and stay for the worship service afterward. Grace and Peace be with you!
Small Groups and Sunday School
Each week, you can expect to find high school and middle school students meeting in small groups on Sunday mornings. We gather together to start the day and then split into two groups to talk about our lives, school, friends, faith, and more. We end each Sunday morning with a chance to share our “high’s and low’s” that week. Guaranteed to have a good Sunday morning. Join us from 9:45-10:45am, then stay for our 11am worship service in the sanctuary.
MYF – Methodist Youth Fellowship happens the first Sunday of every month. We meet after worship for lunch, group games, lessons, and a chance to connect with other teenagers in the same grade. Join us after worship! 12pm-2pm.
“Tim Time” – Basically, “homework with Tim.” Join other students (and the youth pastor, Tim) and do your homework together, or just hang out with your friends. Join us every Wednesday at Monkey Nest Coffee (5353 Burnet Rd), 4-6pm.
Sunday School – It’s not just for school. It’s also for meeting other students your age and building a community of people just like you. Join us on Sunday mornings, 9:45-10:45!
Throughout the year, you can expect to find opportunities to serve the community (and get some service hours, if that’s your thing!). Volunteer opportunities in the past include our church’s programs, such as Open Door, Vacation Church Camp, the Fall Festival, and more. You can also find us at city-wide marches, such as the MLK Day march, the Women’s March, and whenever we get the chance to show up for our neighbors. Our biggest hit is our summer Mission Trip each year (we’ve even been to Washington D.C.!). Sign-up for our newsletter to hear more about these opportunities.
