The main goal of the student ministry at Abingdon UMC is to encourage students, Kindergarten through 12th grade, to explore and grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
What to Expect
Through various, age specific activities, each student at AUMC is exposed to what it means to be a Christian at home, at school, in church and in their communities. With a support staff consisting of the Director of Student Ministries, AUMC's Program Director, the Senior Pastor and countless volunteers, both kids and youth at AUMC are given opportunities to learn how to become vital, active parts of their church family.
Currently, the Student Ministry offers Sunday school classes for Kids (K-5th grades) and Youth (6-12 grades) on Sundays at 9:45 a.m. A children's church is provided during the 11:00 traditional service for the Kids as well. On Wednesdays, the Kids participate in a small group lesson called Holy Moly, while the Youth gather together for HangTime.
Sunday nights at 6 p.m., the Youth meet for various small group lessons, community service projects or special outings. In addition weekly programming and small groups, the student ministry also offers opportunities throughout the year for students to participate in special events, trips, retreats, mission trips and much more.
