Youth Ministries

Within the family of Christian Education, Youth Ministries are devoted to mission, spiritual formation, leadership, and yeah FUN.  Friends are ALWAYS welcome.  The cornerstone of our program is the weekly Sunday night “Youth Group”.  Where friends are… ALWAYS welcome.  Additionally, we host a variety of activities including: Youth Worship, Lock-Ins, local trips for fun, 30-Hour Famine, as well as varied fundraisers. Summer is a time of service and mission through local opportunities with Christian Education / Vacation Bible School and the Annual Mission Trip. If you would like more information before checking out our programs or if you are looking for specific information about on-going or upcoming events, please email our Youth Coordinator, Rev. Paige Boyer at youth@westlakeumc.org.
