Confirmation classes are in planning but have not begun.  Jerry Slagter and Pastor Trevor have started the youth group back up. While the weather is nice, we are meeting outside on Wednesdays from 6:00 pm-7:30 pm. Bring your own dinner along with a lawn chair and mask.

Sunday Mornings

West Des Moines United Methodist offers a wide variety of opportunities for youth to worship, learn and meet with others.

Grades 7 through 12 participate in Youth Sunday school in the Youth Room on the 3rd floor. We cover a variety of studies to engage the youth and help them along their faith journey. Some studies focus on a specific book of the Bible. Other studies may be video based and engage us in thought and conversation about challenges and opportunities that we may face or current events in our communities and around the world.
