Saint Paul’s Youth Covenant…

As a youth group we are committed to being respectful to all that enters our doors. To show respect we will disconnect from our electronic devices (cell phones, iPads, Nooks, tablets, etc…) so we can connect with each other. We will support one another through encouragement, accountability and love. We recognize to fully commit to this we must be honest with each other and be present in one another’s lives!

A Note from Matt Jones

Greetings and grace to you all Saint Paul’s! The year 2017 just continues to fly by! By the time you read this we’ll have returned from what will surely be an amazing mission trip to Copperhill, TN! It’s hard to believe but now the summer is basically over and before we know it school will be back! Though this is a sad sight for many of our students, it’s a very exciting time for us as a youth ministry! The fall season brings a new beginning and so many opportunities for fellowship, growth, and strengthening our community. This fall will be no different! We’re very excited about this year’s iteration of youth week that will include messy games, record breaking night, Itchitucknee River trip, the welcoming of new 6th grade students, and as always Youth Sunday! I can’t wait for this next school year to begin and see how our students will grow and mature in their faith, and in the Saint Paul’s community. Make sure you read below to stay up to date on everything we have going on! May the Lord bless you and keep you.




Youth Week – What feels like the highlight to many in our ministry will be just as amazing as always! Youth Week will be August 6 – 13 and will include everything from welcoming our newest members, to messy games, and tubing down the Itch! Make sure to keep checking our Facebook page and subscribe to our email updates to be up to speed on this exciting week!

W.A.V.E. – On August 2 we will have our last W.A.V.E. of the summer! We’ll go to (weather permitting) St. George Island to close out the summer in style on the beach! We’ll leave the church at 9:00 a.m. and return at 5:00 p.m. We hope to see you there!

Youth Sunday – Youth Sunday will be August 13! Make sure you’re here to watch the youth take over the church! We’ll be enjoying music from our youth choir and other youth musicians, hear a message from one of our youth leaders, and more! Can’t wait to see you there!

Rock the Universe – Come with us on our annual trip to Rock the Universe on September 9 - 10! Come enjoy some of the best theme park rides there are, awesome music, and just the best time ever with friends! If you are interested in chaperoning this trip please contact Matt at matthew@saintpaulsumc.org .
