First UMC Lafayette

Sharing the Love of God through worship, education and outreach.

UM Youth Fellowship (UMYF)

United Methodist Youth at First UMC Lafayette meet twice a week:




Sundays at 10:30 AM in Griffith Hall for Christian Education and food throughout the year.

Wednesdays at 6:30 PM in Griffith Hall during the school year, UMYF meets for Fellowship, Service projects, Learning and Connecting with other youth. And food, of course, there has to be food; where there are youth, there’s likely some food nearby!

Each Wednesday has a focus: education, worship, service, or fellowship. Trusting relationships are built in a safe, monitored environment. Our students are also challenged by volunteer opportunities to serve our Lafayette neighbors.

Any student grades 6-12 is welcome to join UM Youth Fellowship. Church membership is not a requirement.  UMYF is led by AnnaMay Smolinsky. For questions about the schedule or anything else email:
