Bracken UMC Youth Ministry


Welcome all youth grades 6-12 and families! The youth ministry of Bracken UMC exists to grow the faith of youth in our community so that they may serve and lead as disciples.


United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) 
United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) meets September through May on Wednesdays at 6:30-8:00 PM in the Wahl House for snacks, games, music led by the Youth Worship Team, Bible studies, and small groups led by trained volunteers. Dinner is also offered in the Fellowship Hall at 6:00 PM for those who wish to participate.
Sunday School
The youth meet Sundays at 10:15-11:15 AM in the Wahl House. We invite youth to this class that provides opportunities to have Bible study and good conversations together.
Winter Retreat
For our 2019 winter retreat, we learned how to follow Jesus “In the Everyday” as we studied Colossians 3:12-17 at Camp Zephyr in Sandia.


 Mission Opportunities

Mission Trip to Pasadena Texas, June 9-15th 2019
We will leave from the church immediately following the end of the 11:15 Service. The adults going on the trip are myself; Dee Stephens; and Aaron Treadway. We will be housed at First UMC in Pasadena and students are encouraged to be electronics free during the week. If an emergency arises please contact me. I have provided some lists and other information that will be helpful.

Mission trip for June 2020 has been canceled due to  COVID-19

Youth Summer Camp
