RUMY: Spring 2018

  • The weekly event

    Sundays 6-8pm

    During this time, we gather to play awesome games, eat tasty snacks, explore scripture, and have a group discussion about our faith, religion, the Bible, our spiritual gifts, or other faith-based topics. This spring, our theme is world religions.

  • monthly service projects

    select sundays

    Every month, we engage in a different style of service - working with organizations both within our church and throughout the community - in order to help others. For a list of our upcoming projects, scroll down to the "Service Opportunities" section. 

  • Rumy on the road

    by appointment

    Set up some time with our Coordinator of Youth Ministry, MaryKatherine Koons, to talk, get homework help, or just hang out. Or let her know when your next game, concert, or other extra-curricular event is so she can come out and cheer you on!
