Youth Ministry and Programs at First UMC Coral Gables


BELIEVE that Jesus Christ died for your sins. BE FREE to experience all of life through the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. BE YOURSELF because that is why Jesus created you. 

On Sundays, students from 6th-12th grade attend and participate in the 9:30am and 11am services, work with Sunday school students, and meet from 12:00-2:00pm in the Youth Center for games, lunch, and devotions. Join us for Friday Youth Nights from 6:30-9:00pm.

CG Students make a difference. This month, we have been fundraising and assembling UMCOR Health Kits for Hurricane Matthew victims. We have raised over $2500! Come pack some Health Kits!
