YOUTH

YOUTH AT CUMC

 

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.

CONFIRMATION

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.
