The Grid is the name of the youth ministry group (Grades 6-12) of Annandale United Methodist Church. Our hope is that our youth group is a place where young people can come to connect with God and with each other.  We strive to create an atmosphere where teenagers can come and experience God, ask questions, explore their beliefs, and put their faith into action by giving back to their community.  

Come check us out - we look forward to seeing you!

Sundays at the Grid


Sunday School Classes at 9:45 a.m.

Middle School class (grades 6-8) in room 209

High School class (grades 9-12) in the Youth Room (room 105)

Both classes are currently working on Contagious Community - learning about the original church and how its members shared Christ's love and ministry together in a contagious way.

Ramp activities at 5 p.m.

We meet in the youth room at  5:30 on Sunday evenings, discussing relevant video series, religious questions, and more.

 

 Music Programs
Our youth have multiple ways to participate in music programs offered at AUMC:

  • Our Youth Choir participates in several Sunday morning services along with touring performances throughout the year (Richmond Youth Choir JAM & Music & Liturgical Arts Week in North Carolina).  Rehearsals are held Sundays from 12:15 to 1:00 PM in the Choir Room (1st Floor - Music Dept.) 
  • Our Youth Band leads the music segment of worship during Sunday night RAMP meetings.  Open auditions will be held twice a year (November & May) for interested musicians & vocalist.  Rehearsals are Thursdays from 7:30 to 9:00 PM in Hughes Hall.  
    For more information about our music programs, check out our Music Ministry Page.

Student Leader Internship Program
The SLI program is a one-year commitment to a student leadership role in our youth group. These students will be called upon for additional responsibilities during youth group and will attend monthly meetings to discuss and plan future Grid events.  This program is open to all students currently in 8th-12th grade, who have attended AUMC for at least 1 year). Applications are available for anyone (8th grade and above) who is interested in our SLI Program (Student Leadership Interns) – please see Trish for additional information. 


Additional Adults Needed (preferably male): we are still short with male small group leaders for Sunday evenings.  The Alpha program is centered around small group discussion and we are in need of volunteers who can help facilitate conversation.  Theological degrees are not required – all discussion questions are distributed beforehand and the most important qualities really involve caring and being a good listener.  If this is something that you'd like to help out with – please contact Trish ASAP.

  • Also take note of any promises, warnings, or good/bad news. 
  • What words or phrases stick out to you? 
  • What questions come to mind?
    What do you hear God saying to you through the text?
