GET INVOLVED…..Our Unleashed Youth Ministry serves those in Middle School & High School and offers opportunities  for our students to model Jesus in their acceptance, forgiveness, & service.  The students in this group desire to be together in an atmosphere of fun & fellowship where God’s unconditional love is evident.

The Mission statement for our Unleashed ministry is to be a group of young people who are inspiring each other, regardless of age, to always be on their guard, to stand firmly in faith, to be men and women of courage and strength, and to do everything in love.

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”

Unleashed Sunday Nights and Weekly Bible study

The Genesis Youth meet together on Sunday evenings during the school year at 5:00 pm for Unleashed.  We begin with a snack dinner together in God’s Light Cafe.  Each week we address different topics and/or have unique events.  This spring’s evenings will include a cooking in college night, a discussion of God and science, and a church wide Variety show.

In addition to Sunday evenings, our students break into grade level groups at 10:10 am each Sunday morning for Bible study.  During the spring semester we also offer a Confirmation class for those students in grades 8 and above who want to learn more about what it means to be a Methodist and are ready to make a commitment to follow Christ.

We also offer other opportunities through out the year for study, missions and fellowship!

Youth Retreats and Trips

Every year we schedule a High school retreat weekend, a Middle school overnight retreat and a trip to Pilgrimage (see below).

These are great opportunities to learn more about each other, have fun and develop our relationship with Jesus!

Pilgrimage

Each fall the youth group attends Pilgrimage which is a weekend event hosted by the North Carolina Conference.

Pilgrimage 2018 will be held on the weekend of November 9-11, 2018
