During Phase 4 of Wesley UMC's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Surge students will be meeting outside in the church parking lot in a 2 week rotation between jr. high and high school school students in small groups. Our new meeting format, titled "Bonfires of Belonging" invites 6th/7th grade students (rotation 1) and 9th/10th grade students (rotation 2) from 6-7 pm and 8th grade students (rotation 1) and 11th/12th grade students (rotation 2) from 7-8 pm to join us for games, fellowship and spiritual development.

In order to encourage our students to participate with their families in the new all-church campaign, "Paint the Town Wesley", Surge will move to SUNDAY nights beginning August 30th. For a full Surge calendar or more information regarding programming and activities, view the schedule on this page.

The Mission of the Wesley UMC Youth Ministry is for youth to learn, share, and grow in Christ in a fun, caring, and positive environment.

Our vision is to bring our youth together safely, to encourage a fun and exciting environment while building friendships and studying the teachings of Jesus Christ together.


“For in Him we live, and move, and have our being…” Acts 17:28
