The Student Ministry of FUMC Mountain Home exists to offer opportunities for 6th - 12th grade students to connect with God and with each other. Our goal is to help students to grow closer to God and to gain a deeper understanding of Christianity as a way of life. We want to encourage our youth to be more outwardly focused and mission minded.
The defining words for this program are: RELEVANCE & RELATIONSHIPS

More info to come soon!
We have taken down the wall between our youth rooms, creating a large youth space, disposed of old furniture, cleaned, and painted! We have begun decorating and giving the space a fun and unique "vibe". The next step is to install basic lighting and sound equipment. If you would like more information about this, or would be willing to help with or donate to this project, please let Sarah know!
