Ellijay FUMC Student Ministry

(Grades 6-12)

Welcome to IMPACT!

Our youth ministry  seeks to connect teens to Christ and help them grow in their relationship with the Lord through worship, fellowship, Bible study, and meaningful relationships.

 Wednesdays (During the School Year)


WEDNESDAY Night: 6:30  – 7:30   Youth Bible Study   

Have you ever felt lost? Or maybe that’s the wrong word…let’s try like this: Have you ever felt like you’re sort of going from day to day without much thought…without any clear purpose? Yeah, me too. And the Israelites also felt that way while they were in the wilderness of 40 years.  This month we join them there for a study I’m calling: “Wild Life.”


Sunday School:  Please join us in the Ben Barrett Room – Sundays at 9:45 a.m.

This month we begin a six-part series on the study of Moses.  In particular, we’re going to talk about the moments that changes Moses’ life forever.  And we’re not just talking about that whole “God talks to Moses from a bush” thing.  Sure, that was a defining moment. But what about the place Moses was born? Or the people he was surrounded by? What about when he did a bad thing…the worst thing…and killed a man? All these moments helped make Moses who he was.  Our good moments, as well as our bad, make us who we are, too.  Join us at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings  for this important study!

Free Will: Illusion or Reality?

So we really have free will? You know, the ability to make our own decisions? Or has God already planned out precisely what it is we will do at all times? If you’ve ever wondered bout that, you’re not alone. It’s a question that Christians have asked for centuries and we will start an in-depth discussion about it ourselves.
