Student Life Wednesdays
Who: Middle & High School

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


This gathering is a unique opportunity for both middle and high school students to meet midweek.  As the craziness of our weeks play out, Wednesday night is a time to unite and show care, compassion, joy, encouragement, and the love of Jesus Christ to all who desire to join in.  Students gain the opportunity to fellowship through hanging out with old friends and making new ones, worship with our incredible youth music team, and reflect on their walk with the Lord during lessons and small groups. For any questions contact Heather Morris, Youth Director.



Student Life Sundays

SLAM (Student Life Am - Middle School)

Who: Middle School  

When: Sunday mornings at 11:00 in the Student Life Building

Deeper (High School) 

Who:  High School
When:  Sunday Evenings at 6:30 pm - Location dependent on assigned leader


Matthew 5:6 says, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled."  Throughout scripture, we see Jesus seek after the Lord specifically in the morning, desiring to begin his day in prayer and submission to the Lord.  He hungered for that closeness with His Father.  In discussion and study, SLAM & DEEPER are opportunities for youth to dive into scripture and what it means to be a child of God throughout our daily lives.


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.
