Grounded Youth Ministry (GYM)

At Sedge Garden, we understand the importance of providing a safe and welcoming environment for children to learn about God. That's why all of our children's ministry leaders and volunteers are safe-sanctuary approved. We offer a variety of engaging programs and activities for children of all ages that are designed to help them grow in their faith and build meaningful relationships with other kids. Join us for our children and youth services and see the difference for yourself!

Harvest

Fellowship and fun opportunities are an important aspect of growing our community! See the calendar of events below for this month’s Harvest activities; dates and times vary.

Weekly Programming

A fun and welcoming community for Middle School and High School students to get to know God, grow their personal faith, worship, serve, and build the community of believers in Sedge Garden.

Junior/Senior Retreats

As our upper classmen prepare for the transition into adulthood, we offer four retreats through their junior and senior years to dive into topics that are specific to this age group.  We talk about independent living, finding our purpose, relationships, and staying connected to God.  We visit colleges and participate in lots of fun activities while diving deep into God’s Word and celebrating this wonderful time in our Youth’s life.

Annual Youth Events

Confirmation Website.jpg

Confirmation

United Methodists use the term "Confirmation" to mark the first time a baptized Christian publicly confirms their intention to live the vows of the baptismal and membership covenant, and so becomes a professing member of the local congregation and The United Methodist Church.

Preparation for confirmation begins when youth enter their middle school years (6th-8th grades).

Mission Trips

We are called to be God’s hands and feet! Our youth mission trips include service and relational work – everything from building houses to serving meals to the hungry. We come together to give back to local and regional communities in need in the spirit of service.

Wilderness Trail Website.jpg

Wilderness Trail

Through a four-day backpacking and camping journey in the wilderness, youth step out of their comfort zones and dive deeper into the love of God. This love helps young people catch the joy of connecting with God amidst His creation and serving others along the way. They find that they want this life abundant not just on the hike, but in their communities as they return home, too.
