Youth Ministries

RIOT Youth Ministries FUMC of Lancaster: Youth Summer Mission Trips:  Every summer the youth take mission trips to various places. Our Youth Mission Trip this summer will be to Parma, Ohio, June 16-22. Please contact Joseph Palmer for more information at 740-653-3330. SUNDAY MORNINGS Starting September 8th (thru May), Sunday mornings are a little different than last year. During the 9:00 service September thru May, we will be having all of our Sunday School Programs:

  • 6th& 7th Grade Sunday School in Room 26 in the Church
  • 8th Grade Confirmation School in Spirit Hall in the Church (previous Spirit Café)
  • 9th – 12th Grade Sunday School in the Dining Room of Rising House

There will be no Sunday School classes during the 10:30 service for 6th – 12th graders, because we feel that actively worshiping with our families and the congregation is a crucial part of strengthening our relationship with Christ. Not having classes during second service allows us the opportunity to do so. On the 1st Sunday of the month we will still have Sunday School and Confirmation Class, but will also sit together as a Youth Group during Second Service. SUNDAY EVENINGS Sunday Evenings, starting September 8th (thru May of following year) will also be a little different. We are having a Junior High Youth Group Program at Crossroads from 5-6pm and Senior High Life Groups from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. These new Life Groups will provide Senior High students a safe space to engage others in conversation, grow in their faith, and prepare to be disciples of Jesus Christ in our world. To sign up for the Senior High Life Groups, contact Joseph Palmer. Youth Groups resume on September 8th)

  • 6th, 7th, & 8th Grade Youth Group at Crossroads from 5pm – 6pm
  • 9th – 12th Grade Life Groups a 6:30pm – 8pm

WEDNESDAY EVENINGS (September thru May) On Wednesdays all youth will continue to meet for our Midweek Giveback. We will be serving our congregation by working at the Fellowship Dinners at Crossroads. We will be meeting from 5:30 – 7pm and dinner will be provided.
