Our mission is to lead every student to become a fully devoted follower of Christ.

The Vineyard Retreat 

What: Middle School Retreat to The Vineyard

The purpose of the Vineyard is to glorify God and draw all visitors closer to the Lord Jesus.  This purpose is achieved by offering a Christ-centered environment where guests can enjoy creation and the Creator God, the Lord Jesus Christ. Learn more about The Vineyard.

See You at the Pole 9/25/19

See You at the Pole™, the global day of student prayer, began in 1990 as a grass roots movement with ten students praying at their school. Twenty years later, millions pray on their campuses on the fourth Wednesday in September.

See You at the Pole™ is simply a prayer rally where students meet at the school flagpole before school to lift up their friends, families, teachers, school, and nation to God. See You at the Pole™ is a student-initiated, student-organized, and student-led event.

Lynn Haven UMC student members will be participating in See You at the Pole™ events at our local schools. All students are invited to join.

For Parents


In the weeks following Hurricane Michael, Lynn Haven UMC’s Student Ministry was among the first to resume regular events and activities. In addition to our Youth leadership team, our connectional relationships with other United Methodist churches provided assistance so that we could help our beloved students recover emotionally and spiritually from the impact of the storm. We believe students need a place to have fun, learn about God, be encouraged, and connect with positive adults. As parents, we know you want your children to be in an environment that will help them discover and grow in their faith. We commit to providing that environment each Sunday and Wednesday. New student members are always welcome!
