Hello, and welcome to Cookeville First UMC Youth! We are a group of students that range from 5th to 12th grade. We strive to make students from 5th – 12th grade feel as loved and as comfortable as possible so they can show their true selves when they walk through the door.
COOKEVILLE FIRST UMC
We share ministry through games, worship, messages and small groups. We work to love and disciple students through the Gospel so they can go out and share it with others, and to strengthen the community and connection between the students so they can begin to lean on each other and Jesus in times of need.
Wednesday nights are our program nights for the youth. Every Wednesday, the youth group meets and we play games, have worship and a lesson, then break into small groups. We have added something new to the youth group this year called Housecup! When you come to youth, you are assigned a house (like Harry Potter), and we play games throughout the year that go toward Housecup points. At the end of the year, whatever house has the most points wins the Housecup! Each house has students of all different ages, and the purpose of these is to promote community with each other.
Sunday Nights are our “Hangout Nights.” This is a time where we gather and just hang out and have fun together! Some afternoons we might go on a hike, and other afternoons we might do a service project. This is just a time to relax before the school week gets started.
We hope that you will join us in our ministry, and please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions!
