Chaperone a youth event, mentor a small group or attend our Gallery worship to support our youth in their discipleship journey.
At Leesburg United Methodist Church, our goal is prepare our youth for a life of discipleship by giving them tools and experiences that they can build on as adults. Youth ministry begins in 6th grade with Confirmation and youth are integrated into the life of our greater youth ministry.
We encourage youth to grow in Christ by engaging the work of the Holy Spirit through the means of grace. Our programs and curriculum are designed for all youth to practice the means of grace throughout the year, as they develop lifelong friendships and have a lot of fun along the way! We strive to maintain a good balance of fun with spiritual formation.

Youth in grades 6-12 worship together each Sunday at 9:45 am in the middle room of the Aldersgate building (the AG). Worship is lead by the Youth Band and includes scripture reading, prayers, a message, small group discussions and weekly communion. Once a year, we celebrate their contributions to the church community with the entire congregation during the Youth Sunday worship service.
Youth meet at 6:00 pm for the Amazing Bible Race in Aldersgate. Youth form teams and compete in fun activities reinforcing the week's lesson as we explore downtown! Click below to see the complete schedule.
Confirmation at Leesburg UMC is a process by which young people experience fellowship with other youth, serve the poor, learn about the faith and have a lot of fun exploring what it means to be a follower of Jesus. At the end of the process, they become full-fledged members of the United Methodist Church.
