YOUTH MINISTRIES

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.” (1 Tim. 4:11-16)
 
Welcome to the youth ministries at the Church of the Good Shepherd UMC. The youth of our church are invited to participate in our many areas of worship, service, study and community.

Areas of interest for our youth:
  • Reading scripture in worship
  • Taking part in music for worship
  • Youth Disciple Bible Study
  • Confirmation (throughout winter and spring for 8th grade and above)
  • Service opportunities (FACETS hot meals, sandwich making, BethanyCenter)
  • UMYF
  • The 30-Hour Famine
  • Youth Mission Trip
If you have any questions, please call our Director of Lay Ministries, Penny Rasnake, at 703-281-3987.
  

United Methodist Youth Fellowship

United Methodist Youth Fellowship or UMYF meets from 5:30-7pm on Sunday nights in the Fellowship Hall and Youth rooms (unless otherwise stated).  We engage in service opportunities, hang out, play games, have dinner together, pray together and explore God's Word.  All youth are welcome.  You do not have to be a member of our church to participate. 

Our mission:
 
As a ministry for youth and by youth we seek to encounter Christ through service, scripture, community and prayer.  We believe that Jesus calls each of us into a daring, personal relationship that offers unconditional love and transformation for EVERYONE.  We claim Christ's redemptive story as our own and we desire to share God's great story with others (while having lots of fun).  Come and be a storyteller with us!  We need your help.
