imagesaMiddle School Youth group is for youth in grades 6-8.  Highs School Youth group is for youth in grades 9-12. Any youth in the community are welcome to attend and do not need to be a member of Cullowhee UMC. We encourage the youth to invite friends.

Both groups meet together regularly on Sundays 4-6:00 p.m. for activities and service work.  Occasionally, they have special activities, and they may meet earlier on Sunday.  In the summer, a mission trip is usually planned.

Adventure Camp 2019

Wilderness Trail Adventure for High School and Middle School Youth

A group of youth attended Wilderness Trail,  located near Damascus, VA. with the nearby Appalachian Trail for a week in June.  Wilderness Trail is a backpacking ministry that takes people out of their comfort zone and places them in the beauty of God’s creation. The youth hiked the AT during the day carrying everything they needed in a pack, set up a different camp each night and then hiked to a new camp the following day.

The Wilderness Trail dates for 2020 (TBA)

2019 Mission Trips

Cross Missions Trip for Middle School Youth August 5-10

The Middle School Youth, led by Scarlette Pless, volunteered with Cross Missions, a ministry through Myers Park Presbyterian Church (right next to Queens College) in the Myers Park area of Charlotte. They were housed at the church and each day worked at two different non-profits in Charlotte. The youth found the experience life changing and a huge blessing to build relationships with each other and the homeless of Charlotte. The trip is usually scheduled for the first week in August   For more information, contact Scarlette Pless.
