Young People Ministry

Children and Youth at Epworth!

Our Young People are our present and our future! In Mark 10:14-16, “But Jesus was irate and let them know it: “Don’t push these children away. Don’t ever get between them and me. These children are at the very center of life in the kingdom. Mark this: Unless you accept God’s kingdom in the simplicity of a child, you’ll never get in.” Then, gathering the children up in his arms, he laid his hands of blessing on them.” 

At Epworth UM Chapel, we believe we honor God when we welcome, teach and share with our children! To that end, we welcome children and their parents, grandparents, and other loved ones to join us. 

Sundays both worship services, we offer a Children’s Moment where our children receive a spiritual word to grow in their faith!

Children and Youth Ministry at Epworth Chapel

Because we know the importance of faith in the life of our young people at Epworth Chapel, we seek to offer them an environment where they have avenues for spiritual growth and wholeness!

Our children fully participate in the worship experience at Epworth with Youth Liturgists, Youth Choir. Expressions of Faith dance ministry, and Sounds of Praise instrumental ensemble.

The Sunday School gives them practical lessons on Christian faith throughout the year! There are opportunities to serve the community in mission through activities such as Manna House and Change the World Mission day. Each January, we embark on a weekend experience at ROCK – a weekend of faith and fun for all youth, there is Confirmation Class for all those ages 11+ to develop maturity in articulating their Christian faith and witness and many opportunities to have fellowship and fun together!

Mentoring Groups!

Epworth Chapel is blessed to have a men’s mentoring group and a women’s mentoring group. In these ministries, the children are shown everything from how to cook a simple meal to homework help!

We have an active Scouting Troops at Epworth Chapel! All children are welcome to join us!

They teach our boys in community responsibility, camping and many other areas that train our boys to be leaders in the community!
