Our goal is to provide an atmosphere that is a reflection of God’s love where youth can be honest, trusting, heard, accepted, and know they are valued and matter to God and each other. We seek to help youth as they learn to really know the love of God and be equipped to live as a light for Christ in this world.


So, if you have a middle school or high school student looking for a fun community that loves Jesus and welcomes ALL of God’s children, then be sure to join us for The Loft and for our monthly events and missions.

Confirmation is a year-long journey during which students learn about the Christian faith, the United Methodist Church, and Collierville UMC. Most meetings are held in the Youth Loft (Room 200) during the Sunday school hour, with some exceptions.

At the end of the year, students are offered the opportunity to join the church in full membership through a profession of faith, and baptism, if applicable, in front of family and their church family.

This group is for rising sixth graders and older.

MONTHLY EVENTS WITH PEACE TREE UMC: Peace Tree will host monthly gatherings and mission opportunities on their campus (9315 E Shelby Dr) beginning with our Back to School Cookout and Foam Party taking place Saturday, August 19 from 3-5pm.

Both Collierville UMC & Peace Tree UMC congregations will travel together to special weekend retreats, Lakeshore Camp, regional mission trips, and other local events.
Do you like hanging out with your friends? Do you like making people smile? We’ve got a great opportunity for you to do those things and more all while serving people in our greater community! The Youth Pancake Breakfast at St. Pete’s is a fun and easy way to extend God’s love by preparing and serving breakfast to the residents in the building! The first Sunday of every month, youth will meet in the Servery/Dining Room at 6:16am and will be back by the 11am worship service. The residents greatly look forward to the weekends when we get to come spend some time with them!


Our Interim Director of Youth Ministry, Courtney Bradham, would like to invite you for a tour or answer any questions you may have about the church or youth ministry.
