Youth Ministries At RHUMC

The Youth Ministry program at River Hills provides students in 6th-12th grade with a space to explore and grow in faith, spend time in fellowship, and have a lot of fun in the process. These three F’s guide everything we do! We spend time together on Wednesday nights during Youth Group and Sunday mornings during Sunday School. Join us for games, service projects, learning, occasional outings, and more as we discover who we are in God’s eyes and what He has created us to do. For more information, please contact our Director of Youth Ministries, Emma Ganion.

Youth Group, Wed. 6-7 pm

Youth Group is for students in grades 8-12 and meets in the Youth Room (lower level of the church) during the school year. What happens during Youth Group varies each week, but we usually play a game, do an activity or craft, or go through a lesson. Come see what’s going on this week! Email Emma Ganion with any questions and click here to sign up for the weekly Youth Ministry email for the most up to date information.

Sunday School, Sun. 10:15-11:00 am (currently not meeting due to COVID)

Sunday School classes are for all ages at River Hills. Sunday mornings we gather between services for a time of fellowship and engaging with God and each other. It’s a great way to hit the reset button and prepare students for the week ahead. The 6th-7th grade Sunday School class meets in the Youth Room (lower level of the church). The 8th-12th grade Sunday School meets in Room 111.

Summer Mission Trips

Our summer mission trips offer a chance for students to be God’s hands and feet by serving others. Our summer 2018 & 2019 mission trips were with The Philadelphia Project, where we served at a home repair site and a kids camp. Check out the article in the August 2018 Herald for more information about that mission trip or click here to watch our trip video. Email Emma Ganion with any questions.


“Confirmation” = confirming God’s promises to me, proclaiming my personal faith, and claiming my place in the family”. Classes begin in September for students who are starting 8th grade (and older students who have not yet been confirmed) and conclude with students making their commitments on Confirmation Sunday in April. Classes meet weekly on Sunday afternoons. The point of contact is Pastor Allison Warren.
