Youth Ministry and Social Activities

Through projects and activities our youth have fun and learn a lot about the joy of helping others.

Souper Bowl of Caring

Souper Bowl of Caring tackles hunger and food insecurity locally by collecting non-perishable food and money to buy food.  The UMCL youth typically collect over 100 food items to help our local food pantry.  In the USA, Tackle Hunger raised over $163 million for local hunger relief.
youth at kingdom bound

Kingdom Bound

Attending Kingdom Bound at Six Flages Darien Lake, NY is an activity that is both fun, as well as an opportunity to build Christian faith.  Not only is time allowed for the rides, but there are Christian bands and speakers.   

Thank You - Victoria and Theo

Energetic and fun to be around describes Theo and Victoria Camara, UMCL Youth Group Leaders at the last couple of years.   Both Theo and Victoria graduated with degrees in Christian Ministries,  with dual concentrations in Congregational and Youth Ministries

UMCL has been blessed to have had Victoria and Theo ministering to the children and youth.  In mid-June they will be relocating to the Boston area to positions on their career path.  

We thank Victoria and Theo for sharing their lives, their energy and knowledge, and their desire to minister to the children and youth in the Livonia area.  We wish them the very best with this transition in their lives.
