Welcome to the youth ministry at First UMC Paragould! Our focus is to assist students in their transition from children to young adults while learning what it means to be loved by God. Our hope is to SHARE Christ with those who don't know Him, to LIVE together in God's love, to GROW as disciples of Christ and to SERVE in ministry to all of God's people.
First Students-UMYF is open to all students 7th-12th grade. Come join us!
Our Director of Youth Ministry is Mary Hickox. If you have any questions, or would like some more info, please contact Mary at Mary.email@example.com
