I'm New

Sometimes it is difficult to get involved in a new church. Every church has a certain way of doing things; so, if you are new, you may find yourself struggling to figure out how things work. Hopefully, the information below will help you get-to-know us and our ways!

Youth Information Booklet

At the beginning of each school year we have an orientation meeting for parents. This is an opportunity for us to provide a tentative schedule for the school year and inform parents about volunteering and giving opportunities. It also contains some info on "who we are" as a youth group and ways to get involved!

How to stay "in-the-know" about Youth:

In addition to this website, we have several ways of keeping parents and students informed about upcoming events.


The first and best way to stay informed about youth activities, classes, and events is to subscribe to our weekly e-newsletter. It is called "The SHOUTING STONE" and it is emailed every Thursday. This is THE MOST IMPORTANT RESOURCE for parents and students who want to know what is going on! Click here to sign up for the weekly newsletter.

Texting Service

Second, we send texts using the “Remind App.” Anyone who opts into the sevice receives updates about student activities on their cell phone. We do not abuse this! We usually only send out one text per week. Sometimes two if there is a special event going on. To sign up download the “Remind” app and put in the class code (@fcumcyouth) OR simply text “@fcumcyouth” to this number: 81010. You should receive a short welcome message immediately and a code. The code is if you want to download the app.

Social Media

Third, if you are into social media you may find us on Facebook by searching “First-Centenary Student Ministry” (don’t leave out the hyphen).  We are also on Flickr and  Instagram.
