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. 

Youth programs for 6th-12th graders: gather on Sunday afternoons at noon and Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm in the Youth Lounge for a time of fellowship, faith, and fun!
