At Kenwood United Methodist Church, we believe it's never too early to engage with the church community, as well as the community at large. Youth of all ages are welcome at Sunday School and at all of our church services. They are also encouraged to participate in many other opportunities, which can be as varied as volunteering at a local soup kitchen, getting together to go ice skating, or other activities arranged by the Youth Coordinator.
The goals of our youth group are:
Our youth group is informal (that is, it doesn't have weekly or "required" meetings), but we nonetheless endeavor to create a community among the young Christians at Kenwood. We recognize how important friendships rooted in a faith community can be, and we try to provide as many opportunities as possible to forge those friendships through diverse activities.
- To help youth develop in their Christian faith by providing them with spiritual opportunities outside of the normal church routine
- To engage the youth with the larger community of Milwaukee through volunteering and other social outreach projects
- To encourage youth to form lasting friendships by providing fun social events and activities.
