RUMY: fALL 2017

  • 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 topic. This fall, our theme is Christian denominations, and we are focusing on a different denomination each week.

    *Please note the extended time

  • monthly service projects

    select sundays

    Every month, we work together on a project that helps someone else. We focus on a different project each month, and our projects are aimed at helping the community either directly or through a church event. Scroll down to the "Service Opportunities" section to see our upcoming projects.

Set up some time with our Coordinator of Youth Ministry, MaryKatherine Koons, to just hang out, talk, or get homework help and meet at a nearby fast-food restaurant or coffee shop or at the library.** Or let her know when your next game, concert, or other extra-curricular event is so she can come out and cheer you on!
