The Youth Ministry at Huntsville First includes those in 7th-12th grade. At Huntsville First United Methodist Church, our hope is to partner with youth as they journey through the teen years. These can be fun, frightening, confusing, challenging and rewarding times, and we want to be present through it all. Our ultimate goal is to create a safe environment for all youth to know they belong and feel welcomed, loved and accepted.

We have a strong tradition of serving our neighbors and seek to create community where students may come and seek Christ during a number of activities. Through weekly Sunday school, youth group, mission trips, year-round retreats, and much more, we desire to help each and every individual to be encouraged and strengthened in their faith.

Food, fellowship, and fun! On Sunday nights, we focus on fellowship and team building. Snack supper begins at 5 PM - each youth brings $5 if they want to eat. We then have a variety of activities and worship.

Wednesday Night "Encounter" Worship Service
Wednesdays , 6-7:30 PM  (School year) •  Grades 7-12 
Our youth grades 7-12 gather for a deep night of worship, word, and prayer. There is time in smaller groups to share more intimately about the subject of the night, as well as requests for prayer.
