Memorial Drive United Methodist Church Youth
For Immediate Release:
MDUMC is dedicated to having a great place for youth to come and grow closer to each other and to grow in their faith. Whether hanging out at the Refuge, or going to MYF or Bible study, you can be sure that when you are here you will be welcomed.

Middle School Youth
Middle School stuff at MDUMC is always fun and always awesome. Whether we are just hanging out and having fun or serving those in need, this is where you want to be. Lynell and Kim Kennedy are in charge of our Middle School ministry and do their best to create a welcoming atmosphere for these kids that are really starting out on their faith journey.

High School Youth

If you are in High School then you want to hang out at MDUMC. We do our best to have a good mix of fun and faith. We will challenge you to learn about Jesus and grow in your faith. Steve Cragg is our Youth Director and Sedonia Finstad is in charge of High School ministry. Both of them have been here for a long time and know how to reach out to youth.

The Refuge

One of the great things that we are privileged to have at MDUMC for youth is the Refuge 13150 Memorial . This is a safe place for teenagers to come and hang out after school. We have all kinds of games and activities as well as a kitchen full of delicious food.

Middle School After School Program
Ever wonder what your 6th, 7th, or 8th grader is up to during those after-school hours before you get home from work Well, wonder no more - sign them up for M.A.P. Our Middle School After School program is one of those little known secrets on this side of town. The program began in 1999 to provide a safe and fun after school environment for 6th-8th graders. Students are currently picked up at Memorial Middle School, Spring Forest Middle School, and Westchester Academy. After school hours are spent at the Refuge, MDUMC's teen club at 13150 Memorial, and at the main church campus at 12955 Memorial. During their time at M.A.P. your youth will be taken care of by counselors who truly care about them and will provide various activities, snacks, and homework assistance. Just think of M.A.P. as a surrogate family for your youth while you are at work.
