We hope you are having a wonderful start to your new year! We are very excited to be in ministry with your students here at Dunwoody UMC. Below is our Winter/Spring Calendar that highlights the big activities and events that are coming up. This includes the major summer weeks: Youth Choir Tour, Middle School Mission Trip and High School Mission Trip. We hope this will allow you to “save the date” for these exciting events!

Winter/Spring 2020 Important Dates

DUMC Youth is an exciting and energized place where 6th graders through high school seniors are connecting with God and each other throughout the week. We welcome members and visitors to all Youth activities, including group worship, small group discussion, fun activities, retreats and special events. To stay in touch, sign up here for our weekly newsletter.

Sunday Morning

6th - 12th grades

9:55 A.M. - 10:50 A.M.


Youth can find a place at Morning Blend, the Sunday morning student ministry for 6th graders through high school seniors. And, you’ll usually find donuts! We start with a large group gathering and break into smaller groups for discussion. We encourage students to worship with their families in either the 8:45 a.m. or 11:05 a.m. worship services.

Sixth Grade Confirmation

Sept. 29, 2019 - March 15, 2020

9:55 a.m. - 10:50 a.m.

As they join our Youth group, sixth graders are encouraged to participate in Confirmation. An important step in a student’s faith journey, Confirmation classes and activities are a special time for students who have come of age to walk through the basics of the Christian Faith and our heritage as Methodists. Confirmation helps youth begin to take on the responsibility of their Baptismal Covenant and membership in the Church.

Middle School Night

6th - 8th grade

Second and fourth sundays, 6:00 p.m. - 7:45 p.m.

Join us for food, friends, fun, teaching and small groups every second and fourth Sunday of the month. You can even bring a friend! Whether you're in a small group or not, there is a place for you at Middle School Night!

High School Night

First and third Sundays, 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Youth Area

High schoolers get together every first and third Sunday of the month for food, hangout time, worship, teaching and small group discussions. Bring a friend from school or a neighbor! There’s a place for every high schooler to connect with friends, meet new people and grow in their faith.
