This year, our youth ministry theme is "Renegade Gospel".  As a part of this theme, we will look at who Jesus was, paying particular attention to his teachings and how he put them into action in his life.  Jesus taught us to feed the hungry and stood up for the oppressed.  He threw over the tables of the money-changers and taught us how to worship in spirit and truth.  He even brought new meaning to Jewish teachings and disregarded the rules of the Pharisees.  Jesus' faith was not one of idle complacency.  He was a renegade - and he calls us to be renegades by putting our faith into action.  Through this year, we will learn how to apply Jesus' teachings in our own lives to transform our faith and the lives of those around us.

Get Lost (In The Corn Maze)

On October 31 from 5:00-7:30, our youth groups will be taking a trip through the corn maze, barn of fear, pumpkin patch, and zombie paintballing at Klausmeyer Dairy Farm.  For more information and to register, click here.

High School Youth Group

Our school year ministry will kick off after Labor Day.  High School youth groups meet on Sunday evenings from 7:00-8:30pm.  Youth group includes a time of worship, discussion, fellowship, and a snack.   In addition to our worship and lesson each week, we play games, go on outings, and engage in service projects. 

 

 

Middle School Youth Group

Our school year ministry kicks off following Labor Day.  Middle School students (6th-8th grade) meet weekly for worship, discussion, and activities to help them grow in relationship with Christ! We meet from 6:00-7:30pm for food, fellowship, discussion, and a snack.  As a part of youth group, we play games and occasionally have outings and participate in mission work.  

 

Camp Horizon

Each summer, youth from Woodlawn UMC attend camp at Camp Horizon outside of Ark City.  It is an amazing opportunity to gather with youth from other churches for a week of incredible games, community building and Bible study.  Most of our youth will tell you that this is their special place - that place where they go to connect with God as they experience the beauty of creation and encounter God in one another.  

Retreats

We offer a variety of retreats for our youth that allow us to spend some time in intense spiritual development at Camp Horizon.  These retreats offer an amazing opportunity to dive deeply into our faith while getting away from the stress and anxieties of our every day lives.

Mission Work

At Woodlawn, our mission is to spiritually shape people to be the heart, hands, and feet of Jesus in the world.  With that in mind, our youth take seriously their calling to go into the world to serve others.  In addition to occasional service projects during youth group, we take a summer mission trip each year.  These trips are an amazing opportunity to be the heart, hands, and feet of Jesus while strengthening our faith in the process.
