Aley Youth Ministry

At Aley Church our youth (grades 6-12) are important to us! We offer Sunday school each Sunday morning (10am) and Youth Group each Wednesday night (6:00-7:30pm) in addition to other activities and outings throughout the year. We believe in providing a strong foundation of beliefs for our youth. They are encouraged to discover and develop their faith and understanding of the bible on a personal level. At Aley we understand that not everyone will agree on everything, and that's OK! We encourage youth to develop and take hold of their faith as their own with the Bible as the foundation.

Youth at aley (YAA)

Each Wednesday night from 6:00-7:30, youth gather to have fun while deepening relationship with God and each other. A typical youth group gathering includes dinner, games, lesson, and time to just be with other youth in a positive and encouraging environment. 

COVID Modifications:

-Whenever possible, we will meet outside, in the back parking lot (it's recommended to bring a lawn chair)

-Dinner will be provided, but will be catered in and served to the youth (any youth not comfortable eating catered food may pack their dinner and bring it with them).

-Please bring a mask in case the weather requires us to move inside - masks must be worn inside  

Sunday Mornings

Sunday School is not gathering until the church is in phase 3 of re-opening

Every Sunday morning at 10:00am youth gather together to dive into Scripture and relevant life topics together. It's a time that offers focused, biblical studies and opportunities for small group discussion facilitated by Aley staff and volunteers. Snacks are provided each morning and youth meet in the white Activities Building (AB) located across the parking lot from the main church building.

Summer camp

Tar Hollow 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19. 

Each summer youth are invited to attend Tar Hollow Church Camp. This Camp is open to all youth entering grades 7 through those who just graduated high school. College age students and adults are encouraged to volunteer as staff.  Tar Hollow is a locally led camp that has been in place for over 60 years and is open to all denominations.  The camp was originally founded by Sidney First United Methodist Church but has grown to include campers and staff from over 40 different churches. We spend a week together in fellowship, worship, learning, growing, sharing, and discovery.  It is an excellent opportunity for youth to connect with God and each other.
