... and we are all about keeping our youth (and their families) safe and healthy.
We have temporarily halted traditional youth programming. At the outset of the COVID-19 Corona-Virus outbreak, our Bishop ordered all UMC churches in our conference to temporarily close our doors and stop in-person gatherings. Although many places are slowly re-opening, it will be a while before we can get back to some kind of "normal." We will have small in-person outdoor or indoor events when we can arrange to do so safely. And when we can't meet in person, we'll have virtual meetings.
St. Paul’s has a large and varied program of youth ministries overseen by a Council on Youth Ministries (CYM) and directed by our full-time Youth Pastor, Mr. Micah Smartt.
Under normal operating conditions, during the school year, youth in grades 6-12 are invited to participate in the many service and fellowships activities offered by St. Paul's Youth (SPY). Regular opportunities include: Middle High SPY (Sundays, 4:30-6:00 p.m.), Senior High SPY (Sundays 6:45-8:30pm), youth retreats, and community service projects. We also send youth to summer camps, mission trips, and other special events.
