The Sylva First United Methodist Church Youth Fellowship is a place where youth from 6th to 12th grade can come for food, fun, fellowship, and spiritual formation. Several special events happen throughout the year such as trips to concerts, amusement parks, hikes, and other activities. Youth that are 14 years old and older also have the opportunity to participate in a summer mission trip with the Bible Study, Appalachia Service Project & Camp Patton Springs.


Youth Bible Study

The youth meet at 10:00 AM, in the Wesley Room located in the Christian Life Center immediately following the 9:00 AM Praise Service. Youth are welcome to come and explore the Old and New Testaments plus learn how they can apply the Word in their daily lives. Rosa Goss leads this weekly discovery of God's Word!

We hope that you would consider making us your church family by joining us!
