WE DO LOUD, WE DO FUN, WE KNOW AWESOME!
JESUS IS AWESOME!!
We strive to empower our youth through Biblical teachings and community fellowship. We hold weekly meetings where youth, grades 6th - 12th, can learn about God, engage in community, and have fun!
Our mission for the youth ministry here at First UMC McAllen is for them to graduate knowing three things:
- Trust GOD no matter what
- Make the wise choice and put God first ALWAYS
- Treat others the way they want to be treated - with love and compassion

"My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge."
- Colossians 2:2-3
"He also gave apostles, prophets, missionaries, as well as pastors and teachers as gifts to his church. Their purpose is to prepare God’s people to serve and to build up the body of Christ. This is to continue until all of us are united in our faith and in our knowledge about God’s Son, until we become mature, until we measure up to Christ, who is the standard. Then we will no longer be little children, tossed and carried about by all kinds of teachings that change like the wind. We will no longer be influenced by people who use cunning and clever strategies to lead us astray. Instead, as we lovingly speak the truth, we will grow up completely in our relationship to Christ, who is the head. He makes the whole body fit together and unites it through the support of every joint. As each and every part does its job, he makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love."
- Ephesians 4:11-16
