Grace United Methodist Youth (GUMY) exists to help students become deeply committed Christians. We believe that through intentionally connecting with God and others, regularly devoting time to Scripture and prayer and frequently serving our community and world, we can build a strong foundation that will support a lifelong relationship with Christ.
We offer students in 6th through 12th grade opportunities grow in Christ, reach out to others, adore our Lord and all creation, connect with their sisters and brothers in Christ and experience the love of God through their gifts, all while having an awesome time!
There is a place for youth at Grace!
