Leesburg UMC Youth Discipleship

Sundays Youth (6th - 12th Grades) Meet in the AldersGate Building
(109 West Market Street - with green awning)
9:45 - 10:45 Youth Worship (Gallery)
4:30 - 6:30 Youth Group
Our vision is that when youth leave high school, they are committed to the process of growing in the image and character of Jesus.
They are prepared to engage in ministries that will help them continue in their journey as they worship, grow and serve in the world. 
Worship
To know God is to be in awe of Him. Gathering in community to worship together is called corporate worship, and is an important part of our relationship with God. We all need practice serving in different roles before we figure out our fit; we also need to be taught the different elements of worship and styles.

Fellowship
It is important that all youth have strong friendships and a safe place to share who they really are and offer and receive encouragement for their journey with Christ. These relationships develop over time and through various circumstances.(click on links below for details about each ministry)

All FOUR elements of discipleship must be working together for growth to happen.
Serving
In serving others, we practice humility; we also practice doing the things that Jesus did when He walked on earth; in doing this, we follow Him. When we serve in ways that seek to ease suffering in the world, we bring God’s Kingdom to a more present reality.  (click on links below for details about each ministry)

Learning
Learning about Jesus and who He is involves Bible study and being in relationship with others who seek to serve as His ambassadors in the world.  We learn through listening, observing, reading and doing. (click on links below for details about each ministry)
