UMYF Youth Fellowship

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12

Welcome to UMYF!

United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) at Grace UMC is dedicated to empowering young people as world-changing disciples of Jesus Christ; to nurture faith development, cultivate compassion and encourage the young leaders of tomorrow!

UMYF is open to middle and high-school students, 6th through 12th grades. We aim for a healthy combination of worship, service, recreation and fellowship.

UMYF at Grace has a long history of mission work in around the Gaithersburg community and beyond! They remain relevant and vital to our congregation through the many events and services which they participate throughout the year.

Our group meets most Sundays 4:00 – 5:30pm, September through June. During our gathering time, youth share in devotionals, life-lessons, event planning, food, fun, and fellowship. We are always accepting and welcoming new faces! Make a plan to join us this Sunday!
