About 415 Youth

415 Youth focuses on building and maintaining relationships throughout our programs and ministries.  We strive to be a place where young people belong; where they are accepted and loved for who they are and they have an important place and part to play in a much larger story.

It’s About Relationships

Values & Goals

We teach the story of God. Youth engage God’s Word and the faith stories of people of the Bible through study, reflection, and conversation. We want youth to understand the full story of God and see their place in that story.
The United Methodist Church has a rich and deep history. We want young people to understand that being a part of the community of FFUMC means they are a part of a family of millions of United Methodists around the world working together to fulfill Christ’s calling for the Church.
John Wesley said “The Bible knows no solitary religion.” Christ stressed over and over the importance of community. We are called to journey together. We strive to build a Christian community of love, support, encouragement, and accountability. Here I am. It can be challenging to recognize God’s presence in our busy lives. We provide focused opportunities to awaken to God’s presence and give youth tools to seek and recognize God in all things, to listen to God’s call, and pursue their calling passionately.
Many young people experience God’s love through service. Serving others is a reminder that life is not about us. Christ came as a servant and calls us to be servants as well.

What We Do

Sunday Mornings:

There are combined classes for 7th and 8th and 9th through 12th grades at 10 & 11:15 a.m. We have scripturally based conversation about faith and life. Youth learn how to apply the lessons to life now through creative series-based teaching that focuses on spiritual growth. Youth will form lasting relationships with both peers and dedicated adult leaders. We meet every Sunday morning, and all are invited!

Sunday Night Youth Group

We have Sunday Night Youth Group once each month. Join us for dinner, community building activities, singing, and small group based lessons. Both Middle and High school youth attend but meet separately for our lesson and small group time. All are welcome! We meet from 5:30-7:30 in the youth area on the 2nd floor at our main campus. Sunday night youth group is FUN, and it is a great time for new-comers to start getting involved with the 415 family.

Wednesday Night Live

All youth are invited to join us for Wednesday Night Live. Youth can choose to join either a Bible Study or a Discipleship group. Wednesday Night Live offers two semesters:  Fall Semester (August – November) Spring Semester (January – May).

  • Discipleship Groups – Individual groups just for guys and just for girls for  7th – 12th Grades
