Students ROCK

Youth Members Serve, Lead and Grow 

Lynn Haven UMC Youth is a place for middle and high school students to spend time with friends, hear teaching from the Bible, encounter God in worship, interact in small group ministries and serve the community.

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

An outstanding, dedicated and passionate volunteer leadership team devotes their time, energy, and heart to leading students to love God and love others. We want to make being a part of Lynn Haven Youth a fun and meaningful life experience.

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!
