What's Going on?

The First United Methodist Church of Olympia is committed to providing young people
a place where they feel free to develop and express their faith through friendship, service and learning

Youth Group gathers regularly for prayer,
friendship, learning, and service.
We meet occasionally on Sundays at 11:30 am

These youth gather at the same

Youth Mission Trip

While there is a tradition of youth service trips at First Olympia, we have been on
hiatus since the COVID-19 pandemic. We prayerfully hope that one day we can return to this beloved summer tradition. Until then, we encourage our youth to participate in the
regularly scheduled service opportunities in our local community. This summer we
are planning a local service week – details to come.
