Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry at Kingswood UMC is multi-dimensional, supporting youth, 7th – 12th grade, as they grow in mind, body, and spirit. We are committed to being inclusive & welcoming towards all youth. Our youth program provides, on average, 3 youth events a month for youth to stay connected and to live out their faith in service.. Contact Rev. Deacon Luke Pepper for a current calendar of events.
