Sunday School is held at The ATTIC each week at 10AM. The ATTIC is a brick youth house located on the corner of Hampton and Rutledge (1325 Rutledge Avenue).
Our United Methodist Youth Fellowship (grades 7-12) meet Sunday evenings from 5-7PM at The ATTIC. We usually gather for a meal, devotion, fun, and fellowship. Friends are always welcome! The purpose of UMYF is to bring youth closer to God through service, fellowship, small and large groups, and to learn how we can grow through His word and our works.
