THE LIGHT YOUTH GROUP
LEARN ABOUT HOW WE MAKE DISCIPLES OF OUR YOUTH
LEARN ABOUT HOW WE MAKE DISCIPLES OF OUR YOUTH
“The LIGHT” is the name of the First UMC Colleyville Youth Ministry. We serve students in 6th through 12th grade.
In John 8:12, Jesus says “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
As a youth ministry, we are called & empowered to shine the light, truth, and love of Jesus into student’s lives in order to make them fully devoted followers of Christ.
We will discuss and seek to answer today’s difficult questions by finding out what God’s word has to say and talking with our peers about the topic. We will explore our faith in God and grow together in lasting friendships. We seek to identify who God says we are and live out His calling in our lives.
We have a welcoming environment and engaging community for our youth to feel comfortable, yet challenged in their faith journey.
Come join us!
Sunday School | 9:45 – 10:45 a.m.
Sunday Nights | 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Wednesday Nights | 6:30 – 7:00 p.m.
THE LIGHT YOUTH SERVICE
Every Sunday morning between the Traditional and Contemporary services, the LIGHT youth group holds our Sunday School in the LIGHTHOUSE (youth building).
Our Sunday Schools classes are where we continue to strengthen our understanding of God and most importantly, our relationship with Jesus Christ. There is no need to feel like you are on the journey to discipleship on your own, come learn amongst other students who also seek spiritual guidance.
We break our Sunday school classes into junior high and senior high allowing students more discussion in an age appropriate setting.
Please plan on joining us! We would love to have you!
SUNDAY NIGHT YOUTH FELLOWSHIP
The LIGHT (First UMC Colleyville Youth Group) meets weekly on Sunday nights from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Event Center, starting with dinner, which is $3 for youth members and free for first time guests!
After dinner, we play games, sports, or other activities which focus on team building and ultimately fun for our students in our Event Center. After that we head over to the LIGHTHOUSE, our youth building, for worship, which is led by our youth director Omar Moore. There will be an inspirational worship followed by a Bible-based message. Guests are always welcome and encouraged to join!
WEDNESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY
Join the LIGHT (First UMC Colleyville Youth Group) on Wednesday nights! We start off the night with a delicious meal prepared by various groups in the church in order to support their program or their mission. The meal and fellowship begin in the Event Center from 5:45 to 6:15 p.m.
We follow our meal with Table Talk. Table Talk is an intergenerational small group discussion during the Wednesday night Wesley Meal from 6:15 to 6:45 p.m.
We are getting things set for the mission trip! Keep checking back for more updated information.
CHRIST IN YOUTH – MOVE CONFERENCE – HIGH SCHOOL
MOVE is a 5-day high school only event held all over the country, designed to amplify the call of Christ on students’ lives to become Kingdom workers. Located on college campuses across the nation, Move provides a program for 25,000 high school students every summer. Students are challenged through intense, interactive worship, dynamic preaching, small group study, and community building. Students at Move not only learn and worship together but also spend quality time with their church youth group, discovering ways that God will use them to be a greater help to the world.
Move is more than just another conference or camp. Move is an experience! It’s an all-inclusive event providing food, lodging, recreational activities, and an amazing program. Move doesn’t want students to leave on a spiritual “high” that dies as soon as they get home. We strive for students to go Beyond the Event by committing to become Kingdom Workers. Cards with challenges for the upcoming year are handed out on the last day of Move and students are encouraged to commit to completing those challenges, no matter how difficult they may be.
Durango, Colorado – June 25th through July 1st – This conference is for students entering 9th grade to those graduating high school. Students will be staying at Fort Lewis College.

Here is what’s happening in the LIGHT youth group:
We know it can be difficult to get involved and develop friendships with a new group of people you don’t know. But, there’s good news! The LIGHT Youth Group really wants to include YOU in our ministry. We look forward to having you join in with us on a Sunday morning, Sunday evening, Wednesday evening, or for any of our Events. The best advice we have for those who are reluctant to visit is this: Come! Meet our youth! Get acquainted with our youth pastor, Omar Moore! Give us the chance to make you feel welcome and a part of our group!
We can’t wait to meet YOU this week!
Please join us on our journey to discipleship!
