Youth Ministries

The youth ministry at Griffin First UMC exist to create a growing community of senior high and mid high students who are examples of Jesus Christ. We strive to achieve this goal by creating environments that foster community and outreach.


Our name “GLOW “stands for Go Light Our World. We commit to being mission focused here at home and to the world around us. We strive to be the Shining light in the dark. To be the place of refuge to students who are looking for the sense of direction and family.

During the school year, on Wednesday nights from 6:00 to 7:30 both the senior high and mid high meet upstairs in our student center where they hang out and just spend time together in fellowship. Wednesday night’s include game time and then more in depth Bible study. The two groups split up for this time of Bible Study.

Sunday night the youth gather to have our own time of worship centered on topics that will encourage and help guide the students to be the “shining light in the dark”. Our music is led by our own student praise band. Our service incorporates music, games, and weekly messages. We meet upstairs in our worship room.


The summer schedule switches to a more energetic theme. Still meeting on Sunday nights, the time extends to 5:30 to 8:00 in order to accommodate the special events. Summer Sundays include worship, cookouts, pool parties, messy Olympics, video scavenger hunts, and more. Other than Sundays, one day each week during the summer from 11:00 to 1:00 Munch Bunch meets, which is for all rising sixth grade students through graduated seniors to gather for a destination lunch. Mid high and senior high mission trips, lock-ins, and Braves games are also included in our summer schedule. The summer activities are offered to all rising sixth grade students through graduated seniors!

Every Sunday throughout the year from 9:45 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. we offer in depth Bible study in grade-specific Sunday school classes in the Education Building.
