Signup below to bring something for the dinner.

Have you heard of “Rock, Paper, Scissors”? Well, on Sunday we played, “Turkey, Farmer, Snake” and had a ball!  The youth were also challenged to pick up Christmas ornaments with their turkey wattles! As we were reminded in Luke 17:11-19 that it is pleasing to God when we thank Him!


THIS SUNDAY – Dinner & Hanging of the Greens

This Sunday at 4PM the youth and their families will come together with other members of the church to participate in the Hanging of the Greens.  We will gather at 4:00 PM, work side by side to the sounds of Christmas music and decorate the church for Christmas!  Afterward, we will gather for a meal and fellowship.  We began this event last year and we hope it will grow to be an annual tradition.  CLICK HERE to signup to bring something for the meal.

Youth Christmas Party!

On December 9th, we will meet at the Parker Library from 2-4.  Afterward, we will go ice skate (optional) on the Parker Ice Trail.  The youth will need $7.50 to ice skate (with our group rate).  For the party, have your youth bring a snack to share (cookies, appetizer, vegetable tray or fruit) and ALSO a gift for the gift exchange (a desirable gift, no more than $20 in cost).  So three things: a gift to exchange, treat to share and $7.50.

Welcome Home Breakfast Dec. 16th

The Youth sponsor a breakfast for college students and their families just before the holidays to welcome them home.  It’s a wonderful morning to honor our families who were once a part of the youth group at PUMC.  One day you, too, will benefit from this program.  Please CLICK HERE to signup to bring something that morning.  Instead of Sunday School, we will be setting up the Fellowship Hall and preparing for the breakfast from 10:30-11:00.

Confirmation Classes 2019

Children are not full members of the church until they decide for themselves to join the church after learning about the Methodist religion through classes.  At Parker UMC, these classes are for students in 7th grade (or older). The Confirmation Class of 2019 will begin on Sunday, January 13th and run through the end of April.  Each month we will have one Sunday off. (Students will receive a full schedule on the first day of class, or you can email me if you need it prior:  I do try to make this fun, reflective and interesting for the youth.  We will meet each Sunday from 10:45 – 12:00 in room 137.  Confirmation Sunday will be April 28th.  TO REGISTER, email April and give her the student’s name, grade, parents’ names, and a good phone number (and email address if you would call).

Thank you to all who have helped provide a meal on Sunday night.  You have no idea how much I appreciate you.  If you haven’t yet picked a date, we have plenty in 2019!  CLICK HERE to check out the signup genius.  If you don’t mind doing two dates, take a look and see what dates work with your schedule.  Thank you to you ALL.  I couldn’t provide such a wonderful time of fellowship for our youth without your help.  Thanks!
