+ Stonebridge UMC Youth Weekly Schedule

SUNDAY

  • The youth do not meet for a traditional Sunday School lesson at the 9:00 hour. Instead, youth have the opportunity to learn from many different adults to see what it looks like to serve their church from 9:00-10:00 am. Your youth can attend worship with you or we can connect them with Pastor Maggie to see where they can help serve. She can be found in the RAC foyer from 9:00-9:20 am.

Wednesday

  • 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Upper Alley Live UMYF
  • 6:30-7 Games in RAC
  • 7:00-7:30 Worship
  • 7:30-8:10 Small Groups
  • 8:10-8:30 Christ Candle

+ Middle School Madness

Come join us once a month for some fun and fellowship as we go to different places around the area on Sunday afternoon. Go home after church, eat lunch, change into clothes that will be appropriate for outing, and return to SUMC to leave by 12:45pm!

+ Youth Service/Scholarship Sheet

Stonebridge UMC and the Student Ministries of SUMC strive to make each youth activity and trip available to all students. Youth activities should exemplify that church is a place for everyone. So, we are offering a service/scholarship program for youth activities that have a monetary cost.

It is important for students to learn about work, the value of money, and a lifestyle of gratitude. It is our goal that every student who receives will be able to give back in some form. When we are blessed, we are called to bless others.

Every hour of ministry in service will equate to $15 of scholarship towards their trip or activity. Hours must be worked before the actual trip or events and thus may not be used on an IOU basis. Please fill out this form and return to Pastor Maggie Proshek.

+ Adult Volunteers

Adult volunteers are always needed to teach Sunday School for both our middle and high school classes and to lead small groups on Wednesday nights. If you are interested, please contact Pastor Maggie for more information. All volunteers are required to complete the Ministry Safe training and an online background check in order to work with minors

A Medical Release form is required for all trips out of the McKinney area. It must be notarized and is valid for 1 year. Click here to download a form.
