Youth Ministry

Hidi Stephens – Family Ministry Director

Our Youth ministry is a combination of middle school and high school students (5th – 12th grade).

We meet at the church, across the street from the sanctuary, on Wednesday evenings (5:00 -6:30pm) and Sunday Mornings (10:00 – 11:00am).

Youth Midweek – Wednesdays from 5-7pm

The Youth will have a monthly curriculum teaching in weekly series on Wednesdays from 5-7pm in the Youth Bldg across the street from the Sanctuary. A small snack will be provided along with a structured given lesson and activity. This is a great opportunity for the Youth of the church to meet up and catch up with one another outside of Sunday services.

Youth Bowling – Last Thursday of each month 6-8pm

We have designated a night of fun for the Youth 5th – 12th grade. Come join us for some bowling fun! We will meet in the church parking lot and promptly leave by 5:45pm. Church volunteers will drive the kids over and bring them back to the church by 8:30pm for parent pick up. For more information, contact Hidi Stephens at FamilyMinistry@ocumc.org for more information.
