"But the Holy Spirit will come upon you and give you power. Then you will tell everyone about me in Jerusalem, in all Judea, in Samaria, and everywhere in the world." - Acts 1:8

We use the words of Acts 1:8 along with the church's call to Spirit, Share and Serve for youth discipleship at Assurance. We have opportunities for youth grades 6-12 to study, worship and fellowship on Sunday Mornings, Sunday evenings, and Wednesday evenings.

Sunday School

We meet every Sunday in The Cellar at 11:00. Come fellowship, laugh and learn with others your age. We divide into two age groups--middle and high school so that we can address each group at the developmental level appropriate to them.

Wednesday Night Bible Study

We meet weekly at 7:00 after the On the Way meal (which takes place in the sanctuary at 5:45). We eat together, hang out, and then divide in to male and female groups for small groups. This is a time for us to explore interests and topic and to grow closer as friends.

Confirmation 2018

This opportunity is especially designed for those students who want to dive deeper into the understanding of what it means to be called "Christian." These students will also be a part of a covenant community who are committed to study what it means to be called a "United Methodist." Students completing this 11-month program will discern their commitment to God and His church through this confirmation experience. Midway through the journey, all students will be assigned to an adult mentor. This adult servant is a key support to help the student grow in their faith and discern their call to be a Christian, and United Methodist.

Sunday Night Youth

We meet each Sunday night (from 5-7) for a snack supper at 5:00. We serve our church community by setting up and arranging the tables for the On the Way Meal on Wednesday. We have a snack supper together as a whole group around 5:15 and then depending on the activities planned, we may split up by age or stay together as a large group. This time is a time of fun, service and community building within our own group and out in the world.
