BLAST- Youth Groups

Big Loud Awesome Spiritual Time

BLAST is our way of saying “United Methodist Youth Fellowship”.  The name says that we want to have a blast… in more ways than one.

Youth Director- Kate Dilks

BLAST regularly meets between 6:00 and 8:00 PM on Sunday evenings (between mid-September and June).  When we meet, we separate Jr and Sr highs for devotions, but we get the groups back together for activities and fun. We always end the night with a snack provided by one of our parents, too!

Any youth between sixth and twelfth grade are invited to come to all BLAST activities.

Some things to look forward to throughout the year  include, “Gop and Goo” Night, our very own trunk for Trunk or Treat, a “Minute to Win it” Christmas Party, a progressive dinner, our weekend trip to Mid-Winter Advance, mission projects, and much, much more. Come check us out!!!

Keep in touch with the Church Website for announcements on upcoming events (click the “News” button on the bottom of this page).
