Open Door Youth Group is a safe and welcoming place for youth (grades 6-12) to explore their faith. While our regular in-person gatherings are cancelled, we are meeting virtually every Sunday at 1 p.m. via Zoom. Please click the button below to join us! Please contact us or contact Jeff for the link.
Sunday Gatherings for Middle and High School Youth
9:50-11 a.m. – MICAH Youth Center
Sunday mornings from 9:50 to 11 a.m. youth and adult leaders will meet in the youth center for class. The first 10 minutes will serve as time to gather, settle in and hear announcements about upcoming youth activities and then we discuss that day’s topic.
This year’s focus is Journey, an introduction to Christian faith.
Open Door Churches Youth Group (School Year)
The youth group gathers on Sunday afternoons from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in a fun and supportive group to practice living out our faith through fellowship, worship, studying scriptures, praying for each other and reaching out in mission. Check their Facebook page for their monthly location. We meet weekly for good food, challenging discussions, fun games, and community service projects.
Open Door Churches Summer Youth Group
The youth group gathers during the summer months on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8 p.m. We’ll meet most Tuesdays in the summer from 6:30-8:00 and will do a variety of activities like mini golf, lazer tag, water balloon fights, and attend a baseball game. We should have the complete summer schedule soon. Check our Facebook page for updates!
Mission Projects and Camping
Each year the youth are given the opportunity to spend a week away on a mission trip and we participate in the United Methodist camping program both in the summer and winter. We would love to have you join us.
Many other small mission projects come up throughout the year. Soup kitchens and Marion/Polk Food Share are two examples of this. Any youth are encouraged and welcome to participate. For more information and upcoming events, check out the youth’s Facebook page.
