making Connections with God and One Another


Laying the Foundation

The middle and high school years offer a prime window of opportunity for establishing a foundation of faith. At MUMC, we care about you and want to help you connect your faith with everyday life. From Confirmation classes to youth trips and volunteering to youth group, we want you to have opportunities to grow your faith through conversation, worship, learning, service to others and time in God’s creation. It’s our goal that students will connect with caring peers and adults, find value in blessing others and go into the world with the hope of the gospel.

New to Minnetonka United Methodist Church? While there's no need to sign students up for Confirmation or Youth Group, we do ask that every participant have a completed Student Participation form on file. Save yourself a little time and help us to be prepared by completing the form before you arrive!

Student Participation Form


Seventh and eighth grade students typically make up our Confirmation class (though we confirm older students too!). We meet from 6:30-7:45 PM on Wednesday nights when school is in session. Move here mid-year or part-way through the Confirmation program? No problem! We'll be glad for you to join us any time. Service projects, large group activities and fun are built into our two-year Confirmation program. Most nights, students are divided into small groups led by adult mentors. We use curriculum that our pastor has put together (some original material, some borrowed from other curricula), spending one year focused on the Bible and the other, on United Methodism and theology. We conclude each night together as a large group. The pastor leads a lesson summary and students are encouraged to stump the pastor with questions about the Bible, faith, United Methodism--most anything is fair game! (There are king-size candy bars for all who successfully stump the pastor!)

Prayer Requests

We know life can be challenging. It can be hard to balance school work and after-school commitments, AP classes and club teams, church and driver's ed, working and college applications. And then there's family and friends and the drama (good and less than positive) that accompanies it all. When you're a student, there's a lot on your plate and sometimes it can feel like the weight on your shoulders gets pretty heavy. Please remember this: God's got you and we're here to support you through it all. 

If you'd like to request prayer for yourself or someone else, please let us know. Our staff team prays over these requests each week. We would also be more than happy to talk with you and help you process anything and everything that's going on in your life right now. Bottom line: WE CARE.

Youth Group

Our youth group is comprised of seventh through twelfth graders. We meet monthly on Sundays after worship to prepare and enjoy lunch together before heading out for a fun activity or outing. We enjoy hiking, volunteering, talking about life’s hard questions, growing in faith and offering one another support during this important phase of life. We have some amazing volunteer leaders who love us and keep coming back to spend time with us!

Volunteer with us

We invite you to join our student ministries volunteer team and make a difference in the lives of young people. We are always grateful when caring, empathetic adults step forward to lead and support our youth. Interested?

mission Trip

Every year, we plan a summer mission trip. In 2022, we went on a mission trip to Milwaukee, Wisconsin and partnered with Next Step Ministries to restore a house and interact with the people of the community in which we were serving. In the summer of 2023, we headed North to Wilderness Canoe Base, where we spent time in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. What’s the plan for next summer’s youth trip? We hope you’ll join us!
