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)


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

We’ve barely scratched the surface of the great  questions you submitted last month! So, the discussions continue this month. We will be discussing things like:

  • Why do we ignore the fact that “Holy Men” commit mass murder and sin more tha the common man?
  • Does my motive for doing things matter or justify the result.
  • …..and MORE!

Sunday mornings, 9:45AM-10:45AM.




Wednesdays & Sundays in July

If you’re anything like me? You probably don’t much think of Jesus as the “artistic” sort. After all, Jesus was too busy preaching, teaching, healing, and loving to be involved with anything like painting, drawing, or writing….wasn’t He?  Well,, I don’t know…..

There’s an interesting story in John’s Gospel (chapter 8, verses 1-11) in which Jesus “writes” in the sand while the scribes and Pharisees are trying to trip him up.  (It’s sort of a cool move, right? It’s almost like he doesn’t think their arguments are even worth his full attention!) The interesting thing about the Greek word that is used for “write” is -” grapho” however, is that it can mean write for sure. But it can also mean draw or sketch.  It’s something more than just writing something down- there’s intent behind it.  And there is intent behind art, too.

That’s why we’ll start a series called M.A.R.K. (Making Art for Religious Knowledge) on July 17th!

We’ll cook (Nailed It style), build & watch short films!

This series will run Wednesday and Sunday nights through 7/31.

Come and Join Us!
