Youth (7th-12th Grades)


“..And the one who was seated on the throne said, “See, I am making all things new.”…” – Rev. 21:511-12 335

God is doing great things, and offering new ways of existing to each of us.  Here at Moundford, we have a strong support of volunteers led by Pastor Wick.  Our goal is to come along-side teenagers to guide them towards discovering their identity in Christ, and offer ourselves in ministry and prayer to the family/home behind each teen also.  Parents are ALWAYS welcome and invited to attend with their teen, and discover what God is doing in and through our times together!

Sunday School: 9:30-10:30am – We enter the Word of God together, discover more about what it meant, and what it means for us today.  Come and visit us!!

Sunday Night: 6-7pm – “Margin Time”. Connect with leaders, other teens, and/or your own family. Life is too busy, and we know God has called you to purposefully “be” out in the world revealing His Love.  Want Pastor Wick & his fam to invade your home? Let him know! Want to take a hike, play cards, watch kids cartoons, or _________?  Let’s do it!

Bible Quizzing: Students compete with other Free Methodist churches on local, conference, and national levels!  A great way to learn the Word of God, and meet other teens from IL and beyond.

Camps/Events: Moundford Youth have many events throughout the year, from meals together, Fall/Winter Retreats, concerts, Ski Trips, Kayaking, Mission Trips, and more!!  The Gateway Conference of the Free Methodist Church also offers many youth camping opportunities!IMGP5717

Mission Trips: We aim to serve both locally, in the Americas, and overseas!  We love to provide opportunities for FAMILIES to serve together, but love to connect teens to the FAMILY OF GOD as well!  Come join us, and get involved to see where God may have us serve next!!!

FMYC: The Free Methodist Youth Conference.  We try to attend every 4 years, with the next conference happening in the Summer of 2021 in Fort Collins, CO!!
