Opportunities for Ministry

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

 

The Youth Development Council of Greene County (YDC) continues to expand and improve its programs for underserved children in Greene. Thanks to your loyal support over the past three years, YDC has touched the lives of over 100 children and their families. Last year, generous gifts from our church helped to provide two summer camps and two after school programs for 3rd to 5th graders in our community.  To sustain this level of service YDC needs our help.  Please prayerfully consider a donation to help continue this important Kingdom work.

Stanardsville United Methodist Church seeks to reflect God’s love of all children and youth and provide for their spiritual wholeness.   As the Body of Christ we strive to provide a safe space for children and youth to discover God and experience His great love. We strive to teach and nurture children and youth along their faith journey through worship, bible study, fellowship, and service.  And finally we encourage parents and caregivers as they connect with their children and youth.   We welcome children and youth to come and be a part of what God is doing in this place and at this

 

 

 

Youth Group meets the 2nd and 4th Sunday nights from 6:30- 8:30pm.  A time for friends to gather, share food and fun, and grow in their relationship with each other and Christ.    Past events included Country Western Theme Night, Advent Surprise, Trips to Massanutten Water Park

 

Student Leaders- Youth are invited and encouraged to participate in the life of the church in a variety of ways such as serving on committees, council, teaching and helping with younger children, in mission projects and in worship as liturgists, acolytes, greeters, ushers and more.  See Julie for more info

 

 

Confirmation-   offers youth the opportunity to confirm the baptismal vows made on their behalf as infants and claim Christ as their Lord and Savior for themselves. In the United Methodist Church this is traditionally done during the 6th grade, but older youth are welcome to be a part of this opportunity as well.  Upon completion of confirmation classes, the Confirmation Retreat and Confirmation vows, each youth participant will be given the opportunity to profess their faith and join in membership in the Body of Christ at SUMC.
