Petal UMC Youth Ministry provides a space for students in grades 6-12 to continue to grow in their faith, and into committed disciples of Christ.
 
Our mission of Petal United Methodist Youth is a mission of love, compassion and fellowship. We strive to give our future leaders of tomorrow a safe haven from the daily struggles of being a young adult. Our creed is that no child should ever go without a mentor or ever have to search blindly for a shoulder to lean on. We work together in ministry to help make the community grow stronger. Together we will work to make a difference in every life we tough by outwardly showing our love and devotion to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

On Wednesday nights youth meet for Rooted.  At Rooted, the kids study scripture, discuss it, and have a time for worship.  This is a good time in the middle of the week for them to check in, make sure they are drawing their sustenance from God, and re-focus on Him.

The Suday night youth experience is called Connection.  At Connection, the kids connect with each other by eating together, hanging-out together, playing games, having a time of worship, and, essentially, just “doing life” together. 
 
Along with growing in their spiritual life together, the youth enjoy many relationship building activities throughout the year.
