HELPING YOU FIND A PLACE TO CALL HOME

We have programs throughout the week as well as many trips and events. Through everything we do, we focus on building healthy relationships with one another, with our awesome adult leaders, and most importantly with God.

EXPERIENCING THE WORD OF GOD

EXPERIENCE THE STORY OF GOD. IN 415 YOUTH WE EXPERIENCE GOD’S WORD AND THE STORIES OF THE BIBLE THROUGH STUDY, REFLECTION, AND CONVERSATION.

The Bible is an incredible gift. In the scriptures we see God’s story unfold. God created us to be in relationship with God and each other. Throughout the scriptures people make mistakes and turn away from God. But God continues to provide for them and pursue restoring a right relationship. Through reading and wrestling with God’s Word we find our place God’s story and we experience God’s love, grace, and mercy.

EXPERIENCING CONNECTION

WHAT IS THE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH?

The United Methodist Church has a rich and deep history. When you’re a part of Franklin First UMC and 415 Youth you’re a part of a much bigger community. It’s like the great big family you never knew you had. There are perks when it comes to being a part of a family of millions of United Methodists around the world working together to fulfill Christ’s calling for the Church.

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY

“THE BIBLE KNOWS NOTHING OF SOLITARY RELIGION.”

— John Wesley

Jesus knows the importance of community. Jesus modeled this in his life and encouraged his followers to surround themselves with other followers for love, support, and encouragement. In 415 Youth, we do life together, providing intentional ways for you to build a strong web of relationships with youth and adult leaders.

SERVING OTHERS

EXPERIENCE GOD’S LOVE THROUGH SERVICE

Serving reminds us that life is not about us. Following Jesus often starts with loving and serving our neighbor. Serving others allows you to put your faith into practice. It also provides opportunities to build meaningful and lasting relationships. 415 Youth Ministry provides regular opportunities to serve others though church ministries, local mission organizations, and summer mission trips.
