About WE Youth
Middle School and High School isn’t easy. Life moves fast and everything changes during these years. As adolescents make the transition from children to young adults, they need people in their lives to help navigate the changes, challenges, struggles and questions they’ll face.
The youth ministry at The Water’s Edge (WE Youth) is a place where middle school and high school students can find a place to belong. Our staff and volunteers are caring adults who are passionate about helping connect youth to God and others, engaging them with fun activities and through Christlike relationships, and growing in faith through meaningful messages and conversations relevant to their lives.
WEYouth is for all students currently in 6th-12thgrades. If you have any questions, or would like some information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

Retreats & Camps
Some of the biggest highlights of every year happen on our camps & retreats. Youth travel to a camp or retreat center for a week or weekend designed to help them connect with others, get away from their everyday life, and spend time experiencing and learning about how much God loves them and what it means to be a follower of Jesus.

It involves a series of gatherings and time of preparation to help students learn and understand what it means to walk in their Christian faith; the history and teachings of The United Methodist Church; and affirm the baptismal and membership vows they will publicly profess.
