Youth Bighouse

Grades 6th-12th

All youth, grades 6th through 12th, meet regularly for “Bighouse”.  Typical meetings occur on Sundays from 6-7:30 and include food, recreation/games, Bible study, journaling/reflection and gathering with other area youth groups.  There are also many service and outreach projects that they participate in such as the CROP WALK, Souperbowl of Caring, and 30 hour famine.  Of course, there are fun activities planned during the year such as mini-golf, corn maze/hayride, laser tag and snow tubing.  Fundraisers and planning for the youth mission trip and youth mission worship service occur as well.

Mission Trip

Each summer, the youth attend a week-long mission trip.  The purpose is to assist the elderly, physically challenged, and financially insecure population in large and small home repairs, clean-outs, yard work, decks and ramp building, and making sure their home is safe and dry.  Youth, young adults and adult leaders may be joined by other youth groups as well. Many work skills are learned while the group is making a difference with a family and a community at large.  In addition to working daily at the worksite, there are evening programs to enhance one’s faith journey plus plenty of fun, food, and games.



Confirmation Class is open to youth 8th grade and older.  Confirmation allows these youth to publicly “confirm” their intention to live the vows of their baptismal and membership covenant and so become a professing member of Sanctuary United Methodist Church.


Classes are usually held at 10:30am on Sundays beginning in January.  Confirmation Sunday is typically the 3rd Sunday in May where the class members join the church.  Class material is based on the United Methodist approved confirmation curriculum.
