First Newton UMC Youth is a place for 6th-12th graders to come together to grow in our relationship with God and with one another as we learn, play, worship, and serve together. We have weekly Youth Group meetings, special fun outings and service projects. We participate in Wilderness Trail each summer and engage in service through a summer mission trip. Youth Group is an awesome place to have fun and grow in your faith, all while developing meaningful, lasting relationships with peers and adult leaders.

Youth (6th-12th Grade) meet on the 3rd floor in the youth Sunday school room on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Lisa Johnson leads us in discussion and exploration of Bible stories and current events. We share our joys and concerns together in prayer.
Amazing things happen when you take people out of their comfort zone and place them in the beauty of God's creation. Wilderness Trail takes groups of youth on 5-day backpacking journeys on the Appalachian Trail. “Trail is the most fun you can have in the same set of clothes for a week.” - Jamie Richard
