We are the Youth of Suncreek UMC Suncreek United Methodist Youth is a group growing together in Christ through fellowship, worship, fun, missions and much more. We are dedicated to serving Christ by reaching out to each other and those around us. This means taking time to listen to each other’s joys and concerns. It means reaching out to the community and the world through service. We love to have great fun together and to laugh together. We enjoy learning new things and having new experiences. Our group is a great place to feel the love of God, to grow closer to God, and to build strong relationships and memories that last a lifetime. Join Us! Parent Volunteers are always needed.
