Youth Ministry Programs @ Katy First!

Youth Group

Our Sunday night “Youth Group” program meets most Sundays 5:30-7:30 in the Family Life Center at Katy First. At this program students share a meal, play games, and engage with topical lessons in small grade level groups. The goal of this program is 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. 

Sunday School

Our Sunday school meets from 9:45-10:45 in the youth room, located in the gym in our Family Life Center. In this program we play games & do traditional Bible study. The goal of this program is to give student an overview of the Bible in an environment that empowers them to take interpretation and understanding into their own hands.

Summer Missions

Each summer our youth ministry partake in two mission weeks, one for Junior High, Bridge, and one for High School, UMARMY. One of the goals of our ministry is to walk with youth through their lives so that they may be transformed by the Holy Spirit and no single choice your child makes will have a greater impact on that transformation than going with us on one of our summer mission trips.


If your child has never been on UMARMY here are some things you can expect:

  • We work hard! We call it camp but it’s a camp centered around serving the community. This work looks like anything from building wheelchair ramps to painting to tiling floor and pressure washing.
  • Your youth will be placed on a team with other youth from the different churches who are attending along with two group leaders. These teams often form fast friends and many youth maintain the relationships they form with their work teams even after camp ends!
  • Each night after the work is done we will spend time doing fun programming activities.
  • Finally each night ends in worship!


Bridge is an immersive learning and service experience that partners education, spiritual development and service to help students grow in their faith!
