High School Youth

The High School Ministry at Custer Road UMC seeks to encourage and equip students for a lifetime of discipleship. Through fresh and relevant encounters, there are multiple opportunities for faith development.

High School
Sunday School:
The High School Sunday School classes are divided into grade level. This gives the students the opportunity to grow in community and faith with those in their class. This is one of the few opportunities our students get to be with their grade level peers versus the variety of ages at Life Groups, Worship, and Revelation Youth Choir. Our curriculum is designed to educate, equip, and inspire high school students on their faith journeys.

High School Life Groups:
We believe that spiritual maturity is achieved through accountability and sharing. Life groups are opportunities for youth to share what is going on in their lives and to grow spiritually through discussion. Small groups are foundational to who we are as United Methodists and these groups are modeled after a similar pattern of meetings as early Methodist shared. These groups are assigned based on interest, grade, and maturity.
