Youth Ministries

This is more than just a youth group. It's a family. Every 7th-12th grader who walks through the door is welcomed and embraced, no matter what. Our youth group is also a place for refuge, where we can take time out of our busy lives to rest, be ourselves and know that we will be supported for who we are. God is a big part of what we do, too. Because this is a place where God meets us, in how we treat each other, in how we have fun together, in how we worship together, and in how we serve others who need it most. We regularly engage in service work here at Edmonds UMC, and with organizations in the greater Seattle area. We hold fast to the Methodist principles to Love, Grow and Serve.

Blessing of the Backpacks

Blessing of the Backpacks

During the 9:00a.m. and 10:30a.m. worship service on September 3, students of all ages are welcome to bring their backpacks to worship and have them blessed before the new school year begins. Our Director of Family Ministries, Jennifer McLaughlin will preach that morning and give the blessing. Join us in worship!

Ways to Get Involved

Youth Group

Every Sunday evening (Almost, anyway), we gather together in the Youth Hall to eat, play, worship, and serve together. We figure that most youth already know about God, but we really want everyone in this group to really experience God through fellowship, FUN, worship, and serving to community. We're also always looking for youth to help us with Welcoming newcomers, being mentors or tutors, supporting our mission work, or helping with the worship team. We always begin with a group meal and announcements, then we move on to thematic activities and games for the rest of the evening! Come and join us!

Club 58

Middle Schoolers, Grades 5-8 - Beginning Friday, March 17th (Bowling) and Sunday April 2nd (Elevated Sportz, with the Sr High), we're starting outings or meetups for games twice a month. 7th and 8th graders (only) wanting "older" content can still come to Sunday Night Youth Group.

Safe Church Policy

EUMC's safe-church policy states: No fewer than two adults (unrelated to one another) will be present at all times during any church-sponsored program, event, or ministry involving Children, Youth & Vulnerable Adults (CYVA), including overnight trips, off premises activities or group gatherings. With this ratio of adults to Youth: 5th-8th grades -2 adults for 1st 14 youth (1 for every next 7) and Youth 9th-12th grades - 2 adults for 1st 16 youth (1 for every next 8). And with parental permission, two adults are required to be present when traveling with youth in a car or van.
