By definition, a pack is a group that travels & lives together. Our pack doesn’t literally live together…but we do life together. We’re individuals with our own unique interests & hobbies, our different schools & sports, & our own family & friends. That doesn’t stop us from coming together & helping each other travel through the highs and lows of life.

So what binds us together?

Our pack is founded on the fact that God desires to have a personal relationship with each person. Through God, we’re able to love one another, love our community, & love our world. We learn together, we grow together, & we stick together.

That’s our pack.

 THE PACK Activities during September 2020 - April 2021. Despite the pandemic, we have stayed connected, supported each other, and made lots of fun memories! (Our youth band played background music)


This Summer, we encourage students and their families to make worshipping together with the body of Christ a priority! The PACK A.M. and The PACK Night will be taking a break to give our leaders time to rest and to plan for the next school year. 

The Pack A.M.

On Sunday mornings, you can join us for a Bible study at 10:00 –10:50 AM both in-person and via Zoom by clicking here. This year, we are using The Jesus Studies curriculum. This curriculum is designed to help our students navigate through issues they are confronted with on a daily basis in a Christ-centered way. We hope that our students will be equipped to see the relevant issues of their lives through the words of Jesus. You can read more about that here



On Sunday nights at 6:00 PM in the Youth Center (formerly, the Old/Original Church building), our students begin a gathering by having dinner together, and then have worship in a large group, join a discussion in small groups, or participate in a mission project for the day. All teens 6th-12th grade are welcome!

Color Powder Games on the Last Day of THE PACK in the school year 2020-21



Confirmation begins in January.  Confirmation is an opportunity to respond to God's grace and to choose a life following Christ! This 12-weeks class is open to students 6th Grade and older who are ready to take this next step in their faith journey.
Through the process, students learn the basics of the Christian faith, Methodism, attend a retreat and a field trip, and participate in a mission project. Students will also find a mentor within the church and meet with them individually. The class concludes on Confirmation Sunday (the Day of Pentecost), when our church family gathers to witness and celebrate this joyous occasion in the life of our church.

If there’s one thing we have in common, it’s the safety & well being of your students. Rest assured, the PACK takes extraordinary measures to make sure your student is properly looked after while they are in our care. If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Pastor Arum.
