youth-logTigard United Methodist Youth Fellowship is a place for youth in grades 6-12 to experience a loving, God-filled community of their peers and caring adults. Our weekly gathering times are on Sunday afternoon from 12:00p.m.-3:00p.m. for grades 6-12; unless otherwise announced. We begin with lunch together each week. (September through June)

Throughout the year there are many opportunities to be involved in faith development, recreation, fun and mission. The topics in which we discuss throughout the year are chosen by the group as being important issues in today’s world.

Mission projects are very important to our group as well. Throughout the year we help with projects around our church, our community and across the globe. Our community projects include collecting food for the local food bank and Christmas caroling. Each summer we take a week long mission trip to meet needs outside our local area.

We are very involved with camping programs. Most camps happen during the summer. We do participate in some camp and retreat opportunities throughout the school year as well.

Take a look at the youth ministry news for the latest news and details of our meeting times.

I have been working at Tigard UMC since July of 2007 with the youth. My wife, Tiffany, and I have two awesome children, 5  year old daughter, 1 year old son. Family is a blessing to me and I love the time we have to enjoy the outdoors playing, camping or kayaking. The young people that I get to work with are truly amazing and I love being able to serve the Tigard community in a way that I feel so called to do.

    I spent about 2 years enjoying Jubilatte’s warm inviting atmosphere. I’d drink coffee while my kids played in the play area. It was in Jubilatte that I met and began to form relationships with church members and also Pastor Jeremy. When we decided to start attending Sunday worship, it was clear to me what an impact Jubilatte had on my family’s life. Tigard UMC is where we belong. I’m not sure if we would have discovered that if it wasn’t for Jubilatte.
