Life Force Youth

MUMC’s LifeForce Youth meets year round most Sunday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30 PM with special fellowship events and mission trips in the mix.

The primary purpose of LifeForce Youth is building relationships; between youth and God, between youth and church, between youth and youth, and between youth and the world. Activities are always varied, including lock-ins, retreats, mission projects of all kinds, fund-raising activities, fellowship opportunities, and Bible study, just to name a few. For constant updates and activities be sure to like LifeForce Youth on facebook https://www.facebook.com/lifeforceyouth and sign up for our Remind updates.

  • Monday Night Small Group 6-7:30 p.m. – during the school year meet in Room 204S This group is open to those youth 6th – 12th grades seeking a deeper relationship with Christ. We dive deeper into our faith and share how we can make God’s intention for our lives real.  Contact PastorBeth@mtownumc.org for more information.
  • Confirmation – is a fun, faith exploration experience designed to give students a solid knowledge of scripture, an understanding of the theological content of the faith and, most importantly, how to participate in the life of a religious community.  Contact PastorBeth@mtownumc.org for more information.

Parents & Youth Workers

 We are always in need of volunteers to help us with games, lessons, and just presence alone.  Please feel free to join us any evening you like.  Please contact Pastor Beth or Mrs. Tice if you would like to help lead a game, help facilitate a lesson or share music and prayer. 

Emergency Forms & Medication – To participate in Youth Ministry events at Middletown UMC all youth are required to have a current Emergency Form filled out and on file so that in the unlikely event of an emergency we can make sure the student is cared for.  We also ask that for medications, especially controlled substances, a Medication Form be filled out and submitted with the medication in the original container with the student’s name on the label.  Emergency forms need only be completed once and unless information changes we only need an initial annually.  Thanks for your cooperation!
