Youth @ Wahoo First UMC

Our Youth Ministry is all about equipping and inspiring students 6-12th grade to become disciples who love Jesus and others. We meet on Sunday mornings during the school year for Sunday school at 9:00am and Wednesday evenings from 6:00-8:00pm.


Here's a typical run-down of Youth on Wednesday evenings:

  • 6:00-6:30pm - Gathering & Peer Mentoring
  • 6:30-7:00pm - Dinner
  • 7:00-7:15pm - Youth Worship
  • 7:15-8:00pm - Lesson & Activity

Faith in Action

Roughly once per month, our Youth Ministry does a service project in the church or around Wahoo. These projects remind the youth that faith is supposed to be lived out, not just talked about, and it shows the community what the church is all about.


Some recent projects include:

  • Touch-up projects around the church
  • Hanging out at the South Haven senior living center
  • Pancake breakfasts for the church
  • Repair work at the United Methodist Storm Mountain Center in South Dakota

Safe Gatherings Approved

At Wahoo First UMC, all of our volunteers who regularly interact with children, youth, or vulnerable adults are certified through Safe Gatherings, which includes abuse prevention training and a comprehensive background check.


We care about the well-being and emotional, physical, and spiritual health of everyone in our church, especially children. So with Safe Gatherings, we have a system in place to ensure that well-being.
