Youth Group

Illuminate Youth Ministry is open to and welcomes any 6-12th grade student who is interested in exploring a spiritual connection by building relationships, playing games, exploring faith, serving others, and exploring the intersection of faith and life while having some fun. In addition to weekly meetings (see below), we have activities throughout the year, including a strong tradition of participating in the Sierra Service Project.

Target Age: Youth (grades 6 – 12) You need not be a member of Good Samaritan UMC, or any church to participate – all are welcome.
