Grace United Methodist Youth (GUMY) exists to empower, educate and equip our youth to love God, live like Jesus and change the world.
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.
Due to COVID-19, all weekly gatherings have been moved online until further notice.
Join us for a socially distant gathering to watch a movie, and enjoy some popcorn!
This summer nearly 40 students participated in serving the KCK and Olathe community, even in the midst of the pandemic.
We participated in packaging over 5,000 meals through the Something To Eat program. These meals were distributed at Center of Grace and with our partners in the Argentine District of KCK. These meals, which included oatmeal, Mac n Cheese and Cheesy Pasta are full of protein, vitamin pacs and have a long shelf life.
During our Sleep At Home//Serve the City endeavors we engaged with many agencies and organizations in Wyandotte County. We helped weed, and plant at KC Farm School-an agency centered on providing local, healthy, organic food to the food insecure, as well as educating neighbors on how to grow produce at home. We helped distribute food to over 300 cars at a curbside-pickup food distribution center. At the Urban Station, part of Urban Works KC, we helped paint murals and tidy up an community and event space, reminding us that art has a powerful way of shaping a neighborhood. We did work at a homestead that provides housing, food, and education for those needing to escape trafficking, abuse, or gang-life. We also hosted two Water Wednesdays in conjunction with ImagineX in the Argentine District, which is a pool desert.
Throughout it all we had challenging and good conversations regarding immigration, race, poverty, and the church’s role in society.
