Middle School Mission Trip

  • Large Group - This is a time to come together and spend an hour for fun and fellowship on Sunday nights. It is a great place to invite friends and get an introduction to our youth ministry and learn a little about faith. Middle school meets at 6:00 PM and High School meets at 7:30 PM in the D.O.G House.
  • Small Group - There are multiple small group opportunities meeting on Sunday morning and throughout the week with some being grade specific and others open to all. Small groups are a time to dig deeper into your faith and build your relationship with God and friends that are part of that small group.
  • Retreats - Retreats are an opportunity to get away for a weekend and spend time having fun, forming relationships with each other, and building your relationship with God even deeper. Opportunities exist throughout the year with some being combined for all ages and some being for middle school or high school.
  • Summer Mission Trips - Summer mission trips are grade specific and are designed to teach us to serve others for the glory of God. By serving others we learn to be Disciples of God, just as Jesus taught us. This is also an excellent opportunity for fun and building relationships.
  • Confirmation 2018 - Confirmation is for 7th grade and older youth ready to commit to becoming a member of Shady Grove UMC. They will explore the Methodist religion and what it means to be a faithful disciple of Christ.
  • Music Opportunities - Choir, Orchestra, and Handbells are available for youth.  Please check out the Music and Arts page for specific details.
