Katy First YOUTH

Welcome to Katy First United Methodist Church - Where Families are Equipped and Empowered as Joyful Disciples of Jesus Christ!

Our Mission:
At Katy First United Methodist Church, we are dedicated to nurturing and strengthening families as they grow in their faith and relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe that every stage of life is an opportunity to deepen one's connection to God, and we've tailored our programs to meet the unique needs of children, youth, and families.

Children: Hear & Play
For our littlest members, we offer a warm and welcoming environment where they can hear stories from the Bible and engage in playful activities that help them understand the love of Jesus. We believe that building a strong foundation of faith at a young age sets the stage for a lifelong relationship with Christ.

Youth: Ask & Try
Our youth program encourages teens to ask questions, explore their faith, and try new experiences. We provide a supportive community where they can grow spiritually, emotionally, and socially. Through discussions, outings, and retreats, we empower them to live out their faith in a world full of challenges.

Families: Celebrate & Explore
We believe that families are the cornerstone of a strong faith community. We offer numerous opportunities for families to come together, celebrate their faith, and explore God's word. From Family Fun Days to special events like Christmas in the Patch and the Celebration Singers Coffee House, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

During the school year, Katy First Youth meets on Sunday nights at 5:30 PM in the Family Life Center. Our aim to help students grow in their discipleship and build meaningful friendships.  We do not meet on Sundays if there is no school the following Monday. 


Youth Sunday school meets from 9:45-10:45 in the youth room of our Family Life Center.


Each year our 8th graders and above are invited to be a part of Confirmation. Confirmation is a time when youth move from the faith they inherited to ownership of their own faith. They will learn the basics of our faith, Methodist tradition, and meaning of membership in a church. At the end, they will be "confirmed" as full members of the church and make their professions of faith. We begin confirmation in the Spring of each year and conclude the Sunday after Easter. If you have questions about Confirmation, please contact the church.
