The Duck UMC Youth Ministry seeks to make disciples of Jesus Christ.  We use the disciple-making system, REACH, CONNECT, EQUIP, and SERVE, as our process for developing mature Christian youth.  Please contact Amy Denson (261-1525 or Email) for additional information.

REACH -- Sunday Night Live Youth Group (SNL), 6-8 PM in Summer

Our large group youth ministry program allows us to reach out to youth in our community and help them experience God.  We eat dinner, have fun together, worship, and are challenged by a message from God's Word.  Each week, our bus picks up youth at the Colington Rd. Kangaroo at 4:30 PM and at the Marketplace in Southern Shores at 4:45 PM.

CONNECT -- Worship, Sundays 8 AM, 9:30 AM, or 11 AM

The Christian life should never be lived alone!  So, we encourage our youth to get experience God in worship with our intergenerational church family.

EQUIP - Youth Sunday School, Sundays 9:30 AM

In our youth Sunday School, youth connect in relationship with each other and with God.  We spend half of our time together sharing prayer requests and how we've seen God in our lives over the past week.  The other half of our time is spent getting into the Word and applying it to our daily walk with Christ.

SERVE - Student Leader Bible Study, Mondays 6-7:30 PM

At our Bible study, we dig deep into God's word and encourage one another to have a personal devotion time with God each day.  Our student leaders serve in the youth ministry and in different roles throughout the church, including many who serve in worship.

Special Events

Throughout the year we have special events including retreats, fellowship events, mission projects, and outreach opportunities.
