Who: Middle & High School

When: Wednesday Nights from 6:30-8:15 pm

Easy definition: High energy, food, and music. We know they get out of school and have several hours worth of homework/practices/etc... so we handle the food each week for $3-5 (a main entree, dessert and drink).  It is THE mid-week event for middle & high schoolers.  You can expect a time of games, music, central teaching, and small group chats The weekly meals will switch up every week and so will the weekly agenda.  No two weeks will be the same.  

Student Life A.M. (SLAM)

Who: Middle & High School   

When: Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30am

Student Life A.M. meets at 9:30am for a few reasons: to offer a unique & interactive experience, to allow space to serve in other places, and to have a time to build friendships and explore God's word. Sunday mornings are hands-on, whether it is an active object lesson or stations of prayer and contemplation, involvement is central to the experience. Come ready to have fun.


Who: High School 

When: Sundays 6:30-8:15pm

High school students deal with information on a different level than middle school students, so we designed DEEPER to address this and other realities. High school can be a struggle and every student needs a place where they have room to hear God's call and connect with others. Students will use projects, music, teaching, and small groups to claim who we are and what we're looking to become.

following into something more

Student Life at Sugarloaf UMC is the place for anyone between 6th and 12th grade. When asked what our ministry meant to them, the teens kept saying it was more than fun, more than music, more than friends, it was "more". 

We follow Jesus, and while this means connecting, finding passion, and sharing our story, it also points to the mysterious adventure of following Jesus into "more".

The Student Life Building has: 

  • A dedicated worship area outfitted with great technology.
  • A game center (pool table, foosball tables, ping pong and even giant Jenga).
  • A student lounge where kids can hang out and talk.
  • Dedicated classroom and alcove spaces.
  • Special prayer and conversation areas that enable quality conversation; and at the same time, keep the youth safe and supervised.
  • Big Al's Cafe where food is served each Wednesday night.
