Youth Ministry

The Church of the Good Shepherd United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF) is a loving, supportive and nurturing environment for youth who are in the 6th-12th grades.  The youth have been active at this church since 1961!  CGS UMYF participates in weekly meetings and activities. 


During the summer, the youth participate in the Sierra Service Project.  Throughout the years, 256 youth and adults from Good Shepherd have gone on the Sierra Service Project 702 times.  Their combined efforts represent 28,080 hours of service (702 x 40 hours), doing home repair on Native American Reservations and Rancherias in Arizona, California, and Nevada.  This past year, 19 youth and adults went to Chiloquin, Oregon to repair homes and do work.  This summer, the youth will travel to the San Diego area to help the community of Imperial Beach. 


Here are some of the other activities the Youth are involved in throughout the year:

  • Participation in the "30 Hour Famine", making cookies and blankets for the Friends In Deed Women's Shelter, and helping serve dinner for Family Promise. 
  • Participation in the Lenten All Church Book Study. 
  • In the spring, the Youth Bells, Youth Choir, and UMYF host the Annual SSP Cabaret, lead two Youth Services, lead the Easter Sunrise service, and participate in the All Choir Concert. 
  • During the summer, the youth help to lead Vacation Bible School, participate in District Summer Camps, and Sierra Service Project.
