Wednesday Night Bible Study for Middle School and High School Students

We invite students (6th through 12th grades) to join us for Bible Study during the school year as we dive into the Word of God and grow together as a community!  Bible Study is held on Wednesday nights from 6 to 7 p.m. in room F-149, located on the 1st floor of the Sheldon Family Life Center. Wednesday Night Bible Study begins on August 17th.

Sunday School Class for Youth

We have a year-round Sunday School for students in the 6th through 12th grades on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in room F-149, located on the 1st floor of the Sheldon Family Life Center.

Parent Connection Group: Meets Wednesday Evenings

Every Wednesday evening, parents of all ages are meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. in room F-206/207, located on the 2nd floor of the Sheldon Family Life Center, to discuss issues and concerns dealing with parenting in our world today from a Christian perspective. This is an open discussion group and everyone is invited to join us.

It takes a village to raise our children in a Christ-like way in our culture today, and we are building this group to serve as a place to receive support from other parents, advice and ideas from “more experienced” parents, and a reminder that you are not alone in what you are going through. For more information, please contact Rev. David Burchett by e-mail at dburchett@duluthumc.org.

We Need You!

Youth - We need YOU to make Youth Group a success, after all that's why it's called Youth Group.

Parents and other interested adults - We need YOU to make youth group a success.  We are always seeking new counselors to join the A-Team or to chaperone events. 

Please contact David Burchett (Director of Youth Ministries) and/or Min Lee (Associate Director of Youth Ministries) by e-mail or phone if you would like to help with our youth or if you have any questions about any of these events/programs.
