3rd Students is a group that brings real faith and real life together for 7-12th grade teens. We do this through weekly worship, small groups, youth leadership development, annual events, service projects, and spiritual retreats. In addition to Sunday morning worship, our main gathering is now on Thursday nights from 5:30-8:00 pm in the youth facility, which is on the 2nd floor of the E&A building. Please note that during the Spring 2020 school semester, youth group has moved from Wednesday to Thursday night to better accommodate student schedules during this busy time of the year. Youth are also invited to join the youth ministry at our partner church, FUMC Cocoa Beach, on Sundays, 5:00-7:30pm.
Our mission is to encourage all the youth of Merritt Island and our surrounding communities to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and cultivate a daily walk with him. In this way, they will experience transformation and be empowered to be the hands and feet of Jesus at school and beyond. We would love for you to join us this week!
