Winter Xtreme 2020: Vision

Grades 6-12 will explore their 2020 Vision and how it includes our great God. This will be the seventh annual trek to East Troy, Wisconsin for students to enjoy a weekend full of wintery fun and deeper learning. Camp Timber-lee has a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities, including broomball, cross country skiing, karaoke, tobogganing, trail rides, tubing, ziplining, crafts, and a science center.
It will be a great weekend to play in the snow (they make their own if needed), and to learn more about God. We will leave around 4 PM on January 31, and return around 4 PM on February 2. Cost is $115 (scholarships and multiple children discounts available).
Registration and $50 deposit due by January 5. Remaining $65 due by January 19.
Think you can bring the heat or satisfy the crowd with your favorite soup? We're looking for you.  Not a soup or chili maker? We are also looking for baked goods for the bake sale at the same time. And of course, everyone is welcome to join us to taste the goods on January 26. A house soup and chili will also be available. A free will donation will be taken to support the youth as we head out for retreats, trips, and camp.

we've got a place for you

Youth Group Sundays 6-8 PM 

We meet in the Youth Room and Wesley Hall, both located in the lower level of FUMC.
Youth Group normally includes dinner, worship, a message, and small groups.
We do like to switch it up, so we do have game nights, movie nights, and other special activities.
 Youth Group is for anyone in 6th-12th grade. Small groups tend to be broken up by gender and age, but sometimes we mix things up.
**Most nights both groups meet at the same time. However, there are nights when groups meet separately

because of trips or other events taking place within the church. Special emails and text messages are sent on those nights.

Small Group Wednesdays 7-8 PM 

Small group takes place in the youth room.
Join us at 6:30 PM for worship in the Worship Center.
Small group is for grades 6-12.

Sunday School Sundays 9:45-10:45 AM 

  • Aftershock (grades 9-12) - Room 215
  • Magnitude (grades 6-8) - Youth Room
