Youth Connection is a youth group designed to serve students in grades 4-7. This ministry is to help bridge the gap between Sunday School and Youth Group and prepare students for confirmation. Youth will learn what it means to be a Christian, what Jesus has taught us and how we can use that in everyday life. We will do this through games, activities, group work, discussion, DVD programs, movies. They will also have the option of joining in on some awesome activities and outings including, youth lock-ins at the church, kingdom bound at Darien Lake, District and Conference events (grades 6 and up).
High school youth group is designated for youth in grades 7-12. This group meets every Friday night in our youth room, located on the lower level of the church. This ministry is focused on helping youth deal with life. We take the issues which the kids are dealing with and help them see how to deal with these issues through biblical scriptures and the teachings of Jesus Christ. We also participate in district and conference level events with other United Methodist Churches in New York State. Some events are just an afternoon and others are an entire weekend away. We would love to have you join us so you can learn more about our Lord and Savior.

Flower City Work Camp is a mission trip for youth grades 7 – 12, who are active in the youth group. These students will put aside their electronic devices along with their spring break to help others. There are many opportunities which the youth are able to participate in, including work sites (working on individual homes around the greater Rochester area), Sidewalk Clubs (mini VBS programs on street corners in the city of Rochester), Soccer & Basketball camps (where the youth teach kids from the area more about these sports). Each of these opportunities, the youth will join with youth and adults leaders from Aldersgate UMC, other churches and denominations around Rochester to serve and spread the Gospel message along with the light of Jesus.
