Our Youth Ministry serves grades 6-12 and provides events and programming to help foster spiritual growth and equip students to be Disciples of Christ now and after they graduate.
In all that we do, we strive for a Christ-centered environment in which we LIVE out our faith to each other through love, respectful interaction, love, FUN, and more love!
IMPORTANT MINISTRY DOCUMENTS

METHODIST YOUTH FELLOWSHIP
Methodist Youth Fellowship is a time for our youth to gather to hear the Word of God, play games together, catch up from the week, and get to know one another better. We eat a meal together and then divide up into groups for the lesson. This is a casual and fun atmosphere for kids and parents alike
MYF MEETS SUNDAYS 5:30PM-7:30PM IN WESLEY HALL

Although confirmation is not a sacrament in The United Methodist Church, it is an important marker along our spiritual journeys. In the United Methodist Church, children are baptized as infants by their parents. Confirmation is a time to understand the faith and vows they were baptized into as infants. Confirmands are instructed on the fullness of what that baptism means and decide for themselves to take on the responsibilities of their own faith. After Confirmation, confirmands have the opportunity to become full members of the local church in their own right.
At First United Methodist Church New Braunfels, youth in 8th grade and older are eligible for our confirmation class. Submit the contact form below for more details.
RIVER CITY WORK CAMP
River City Work Camp is led by our High School youth and volunteers to specifically give Middle and High School youth (incoming 6th grade through completed 12th grade) an opportunity to make a real difference in our community. Middle and high schoolers spend the week working on a local low-income housing project, learning, worshipping, and fellowshipping together. Volunteers are always needed for this camp, so please get in touch with us by using the contact form below if you are interested.
