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. Please contact Erick Dahl for more info at

Confirmation for rising 6th graders will begins September 9
The journey of faith is like the journey of life…high points, bumps in the road, twists and turns. For those in 6th grade, Confirmation lays the foundations of faith that will be a building block for a life filled with purpose and passion. Please join us in Palmer Hall at 9:30am on each Sunday. We will be meeting throughout the year for meaningful and fun events. This is a great chance for youth to explore the roots of the faith and begin a faith journey of their own.
