Youth Ministry

Sunday Mornings – Sunday School @ 9:30am
Sunday Evenings – Youth Fellowship @ 5:30pm

Welcome to youth ministry at Oak Grove United Methodist Church! We are a community of teenagers (grades 6th-12th) and adults composed of many faces, names, and stories. We may embrace different points of view on some issues, but we are united in our desire to create life changing communities through Jesus. If you are in 6th-12th grade, no matter who you are, what your story is, or what you believe, you are always welcome here.

Spring 2023

Our theme for the spring semester is “Known and Loved.” God knows every little thing about us, and God loves us all the more. We are invited to know God’s love for us. We are a part of a community that knows us and loves us. We are called to share God’s love with the world, so that others might know that great love.
