Youth

Elk City UMC's Youth Ministry is for students in grades 7-12. 

We seek to guide our older kids in growing their relationship with Christ...to urge ownership of and commitment to their faith...and we do this through biblical instruction, emphasizing the importance of Scripture and prayer in their walk with God, and relationship building with each other and mentors within the congregation who have wisdom and experience to impart. We value leadership, service and character... and our youth mission is based on 1 Corinthians 10:31, that whatever we do, we do it for the glory of God. Our youth motto is "Work Hard. Play Hard. Pray Hard." 

During the school year, youth meets each week on Wednesdays and Sundays.
