The Youth Ministries Program includes programs and activities for youth in the 6th  to 12th.  Programs include Sunday School, Bible Study, Youth Choir and UMYF.  The UMYF program is the core program and is designed to give Spiritual guidance based upon Christian teachings and principles to help youth deal with life’s many challenges. The UMYF meets at 4:30 PM Sunday evenings beginning with Bible Study.

Youth Ministry is in full swing! Upcoming activities:


Soccer, football, basketball, soccer, bowling, and tennis players practice during the summer. They stretch their muscles and practice to improve and excel at their game. This summer children from kindergarten through 5th grade have the opportunity to stretch their reading muscles to improve and excel in reading. Our high school youth will work one on one with the children to help stretch their reading and learning muscles during the summer.

Practice sessions will take place at the church on Tuesdays from 6:00-7:00 pm. Call or email the church to participate in the Summer Reading Practice. Practice is open to anyone in the community.







AMUMC GO to Resurrection 

Every year our youth and youth ministry team participate in Resurrection in Pigeon Forge. Resurrection is an awesome event of worship and spiritual growth for youth and youth mentors. Each year over 12,000 come together to celebrate the God of The Resurrection. Through inspirational words and music led by nationally-known speakers and musicians, young people encounter the Lord in new and deeper ways. For many, Resurrection is an opportunity for conversion, decision, and revival. For others, it becomes a moment of realization that their faith needs to grow deeper and more serious.

Resurrection is hosted by the youth ministry of the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church. Most of the youth and adults who attend Resurrection come from the geographical areas of northeast Georgia, eastern Tennessee, and southwestern Virginia. However, a significant and growing number of youth and adults come from churches outside of this region. Resurrection has become an interdenominational celebration, welcoming youth and adults from Baptist churches, Presbyterian churches, the Christian Church, Lutheran churches, and more, as well as non-denominational churches; and from states as far away as Florida, Mississippi, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Resurrection testifies to the common experience of Jesus Christ’s living Lordship that binds all believers into one, despite our divisions.

Although Resurrection has become a large gathering over its 30-year history, the focus of the event has remained constant: the individual young person and his or her response to Jesus Christ. Radical discipleship changes the world!
