The FUMC Youth program is a Biblically-based, safe place designed for students in grades 6-12 who have an interest in growing in their faith while at the same time want fellowship and want to have fun! Youth Group occurs several times per month on Sundays and we offer numerous opportunities for activities outside of church as well. The program is led by Dr. Dave Breslin and a team of dedicated volunteers. Dave and all volunteers have completed, and passed, a rigorous background check process as it is of the utmost importance to ensure our youth are surrounded by adults of positive impact and integrity.

Recent activities have included:

  • Monthly Sunday evening gatherings for a pizza dinner, activities, and a message from the Bible

  • Christmas Eve Party

  • Fall kick-off family pool party

  • Trips to Kings Dominion

  • Overnight retreats

  • Weeknight ZOOM Bible study

  • Youth tailgate Sundays

  • Serving in our weekly soup kitchen

  • Worship nights with other Charlottesville Methodist church youth groups
