Youth Ministry

Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.”
1 Timothy 4:12

The youth of our community are very important to Blackman United Methodist Church. We have a full time youth minister and an amazing group of volunteers that lead our youth group.  Our goal is to partner with parents in walking alongside your student as they become a disciple of Jesus and a disciple maker for the kingdom.  We are committed to offering safe environments for your students to connect in Christian community and grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ.   Our current student opportunities are:

Sunday Mornings in person:   9:45-10:30am

Sunday Night Youth in person:    5:30-7pm
(we are currently not sharing a meal at Sunday Night Youth due to covid)
Sunday Night Youth Zoom Online:    6:00-6:30pm 
(subscribe to our NEWSLETTER HERE for links to join)


At all in person student ministry events we will be wearing masks and following CDC guidelines.
