Children & Youth Ministries

Weekly Children’s & Youth Programs:

  • Sunday morning live every week at 9:30 a.m. in the downstairs youth lounge for middle school & high school youth
  • Sunday school during the sermon for fifth-graders and younger. They will be escorted to the Sunday school room after the Children’s Message and brought back after the sermon
  • The MIX, the church’s mid-week ministry that has a longer Bible Study and other parts to foster intergenerational relationships

The Atascadero United Methodist Church offers a variety of programs for children, youth and families of young children.

  • Family Events: Several times throughout the year, we have gatherings for families of young children (typically those with at least one child in the fifth grade or younger) and multi-generational events. See our calendar to see what’s coming up.
  • The MIX: A mid-week multi-generational student ministry, meets the first three Wednesdays of the month, October through April.
  • Middle School Youth Group: Children in the sixth through eighth grades.
  • Senior High Youth Group: Youth in the ninth through 12th grades.
  • Vacation Bible School: This is held for one week each summer for children 3 years old (and potty trained) through entering fifth grade, with those entering the sixth grade and older serving as volunteers.

Each year we host several events for families:
