Youth

Sunday Night Youth Group
Every Sunday night, youth grades seven through twelve gather from 5pm - 7pm. From 5 - 6pm, we gather in Glory Be Hall for fun games, fellowship and food.  From 6 - 7pm, we go to the youth area for a deeper discussion about our Christian faith and love of God.

Mission Opportunities
Each summer, the youth take a mission trip to grow in service, learn about the world, and create a deeper bond with one another.  Mission trips have included New Orleans, Heifer Ranch with Global Village experience, inner-city mission work with the homeless, Mountain T.O.P. in Tennessee and VBS on Native American reservations.  Local mission opportunities are available also through Wesley-Rankin in West Dallas, the Daire Center, Emmanuel Community Center, and Trinity River Audubon.

Youth Sunday School
We meet at 10 a.m. in the Youth room to learn and discuss scripture and how it relates to life now. 

Youth Ministry Plan
Learning to have a deeper and more intimate relationship with God through community, outreach, service and study.  We welcome all youth who are having questions about God and their faith and we are creating a space to ask questions as we believe God is big enough to handle any question we may have.

Confirmation

At Greenland Hills UMC, confirmation is for students entering the 6th grade and meets during the Sunday School hour from September through May. Following Confirmation Sunday, the confirmands become a part of the youth group.

For more information about confirmation, please contact Kristin Mallory, Minister of Children & Youth, at kmallory@greenlandhills.org.

Greenland Hills UMC uses the Re:Form curriculum with the Methodist Tradition component. This confirmation program is not your conventional classroom experience! It brings worship, Sunday school, Bible study, service, and church ministries together to teach confirmands about the Christian faith. 

In Re:Form, confirmands learn to know their story by encountering the faith narrative from creation to Christianity through cartoon videos and discussion, confirm their faith by embracing the essential beliefs and practices of The United Methodist Church, and to live their commitment by embodying the confirmation vows and embark on the Christian discipleship journey through mission and witness.
