Youth

6th - 12th Grades

Our vision for Smyrna First Youth is to send students on their journey in a manner worthy of God by loving God, each other, our community and our world.

Sunday Night Youth

Most Sunday evenings students in 6-12th grade gather for food, fellowship, and fun! We have a snack supper at 5:30pm ($3 suggested donation) provided by parents/volunteers, followed by a devotion and a different activity each week. Once a month we head out into the community for different events that have included escape rooms, Top Golf, and a progressive dinner.

Small Groups

We offer small groups as a chance for middle and high school students to connect with one another and adult leaders. Small groups offer a time to dive deeper into discipleship and how God is speaking in our lives. Contact Jono if you’re interested in joining a small group. jono@smyrnafumc.org

Sunday School

Each Sunday morning we gather in the YB (youth bldg.) from 10:10 – 10:50am to explore relevant biblical teaching, connect with one another and enjoy snacks and coffee. If there is a month with a 5th Sunday we combine with our community hour to eat pancakes together in the welcome center.

Confirmation

Confirmation is for 6th grade students, and at least one parent, to journey together in classes, activities, mission projects, speakers and a retreat. Students are able develop their own faith commitment in Jesus and will consider membership in the church. Classes start in January and are for students who are curious about the United Methodist Church, what we believe, and are ready to step into a faith of their own more deeply. 

For Parents

Raising teenagers can be tough!  We are here for you.  Our goal is to partner with you as together we provide the education, faith foundation and love for your student that will “Send them on their journey in a manner worthy of God.”
