We consider “youth” to be people in sixth through twelfth grade. Our youth are a vital part of our congregation and they are invited to participate at all levels. We love to have our youth serve as acolytes (lighting candles), assisting with the offering, reading scripture, serving as ushers, teaching younger children and more. FUMC is committed to building positive relationships that challenge the youth of Elgin, Texas, to investigate Christianity, grow in the knowledge, mature in the faith and fulfill God’s purpose for their life.
Baptism and Confirmation
First United Methodist Church of Elgin, provides a confirmation/baptism experience for children who have reached the age at which they are ready to do in-depth study about what it means to follow the way of Christ and be a part of a Christian community. For more information about this, please contact the church office at (512) 285-4503.
