Here at Mary Helen United Methodist Church, we have an amazing group of young people that are part of Youth Ministry. In this group, there are those that are trying to decide if a life of faith is for them, those who are beginning to grow in a new relationship with Christ, and those who are deepening their walk with God. If you are willing to become a friend to others, dig deeper spirituallity, and serve humbly like Jesus did, this is a place for you to consider.
Several of our youth attended summer camp this year at Aldersgate, which is located about an hour southeast of Lexington, Kentucky, nestled in the foothills of Appalachia. Aldersgate Camp & Retreat Center offers field trips, day retreats, and overnight options for individuals and groups year round and summer camp programming during June and July. As always, the camp is free to our youth group.
Our regular youth meetings are held each Wednesday evening at 6:30 PM. We always have a lot of activities, games and opportunities for spiritual growth. Our Youth leaders are Terri Brock, Karen Gross, Randy Brock, Stacey Foster, Phyllis Pate, Shirley Turner and Tracy Turner. Rick Gross heads our bus ministry. Currently during the summer months, we are having regular worship services. We return to our youth activities when school begins. As always, a nutricious snack or potluck is provided.
Vacation Bible School this year runs from July 22 - 26 from 6:00 PM till 8:30 PM Our theme this years is "Mission to Mars and Beyond". This is shaping up to be one of our best so far!
