  • UMYF
    United Methodist Youth Fellowship

    In-person UMYF (7th-12th grades): 6-7:30 pm, Gym

    UMYF is a great time to come together as a group to play, sing, learn, and pray together.

    For in-person UMYF, we will do temp checks as you check in, masks will be worn, and physical distancing will continue in order to allow all to feel welcome and safe.

    Youth gather at FUMCR for fellowship, worship, and to participate in open and honest discussions about teenage life, pressures, and culture. Our youth group is a place where youth can come, just as they are, and discover together how awesome our God is!

  • Sunday School
    Sunday School

    Sunday school classes are not currently meeting.

    Please join us for UMYF on Sundays, Grade Level Hangouts on weeknights, and worship services online or in person.

  • SLT
    Student Leadership Team

    The Student Leadership Team (SLT) is the youth leadership core at First UMC Richardson. Representatives from each grade serve as the sounding board for the youth group providing feedback and  ideas to the youth staff and adults. SLT members are key leaders in their Sunday school classes, during UMYF, and on trips.

    Meetings occur monthly during the school year.

    To participate in SLT, students must attend the first meeting, as well as commit to missing no more than one meeting for the year and serving as a leader in the youth group.

  • Resources

    FUMCR Student Ministry partners with parents to come along side in helping with the spiritual development of students during their teenage years. We are here to assist you in navigating through these years with all of the confusion, frustration, and questions that come along with it.

    Fellowship and Fun

    We believe that faith encompasses all aspects of our lives, including our play time and fellowship time.  Because of that, our youth ministry makes sure to provide plenty of activities for our youth that include good ole' fashioned fun!  Some of the things we do include:  Ice Cream Socials, Broomball, Laser-tag, Lock-ins, Whirlyball, Pool Parties, Ski Trips and much, much more. . . .


    Whether it is feeding the homeless, visiting our church’s shut-ins or going on mission trips to New Mexico, Galveston, Oklahoma, San Marcos, or some other location, there are various opportunities throughout the year, for our youth to learn what it means to “serve with Christ.”
