On the Youth Floor! We are building a community of believers in our Middle Schools and High Schools by teaching youth how to show Christ’s love to others. On Noel’s Youth floor, you will find a safe community of love and acceptance. Join us as we tackle life’s tough questions and work on strengthening our faith by digging deep into the word of God. Youth gatherings involve community building through fun activities, sharing common meals, and nurturing our faith through learning, discussion, and service. Come find your niche as a member of Noel Youth. There’s always a place for you!

Sundays at the Crossing
Beginning August 19, 5-7pm, and every sunday afterward
Join us at The Crossing (United Methodist Youth Fellowship). All 6th-12th grade students are invited and encouraged to participate in this very important discipleship formation time. Each meeting will consist of a snack supper, a scripture and devotional time, and an activity. Through the Crossing, your teenager will continue grow in discipleship with Jesus Christ through missions, worship, evangelism, and fellowship.
United Methodist Youth Fellowship is our weekly get-together as a Christ-centered community. This time is designed for us to build deeper relationships with each other through fun, crazy, and thoughtful activities. Whether it’s a paint war or working on a service project, UMYF is where we build Christ-centered relationships with one another through fun, fellowship, and service.
youth band/joyeux noel choir
sundays, during the school year, 4-5pm, youth floor
Youth band brings together our youth interested in vocal performance with those interested in furthering their instrumental talent. Combining their musical gifts, our youth band practices throughout the school year preparing performances for worship services and other church events!
Our youth sunday school is a wonderful atmosphere for youth to learn more about how our lives are part of the grander narrative of God’s story. Exploring the Bible as God’s story allows our youth to see the unique value of their own life story and the lives of others.
beginning sunday, September 9, 10am
All 6th-8th graders are invited to meet in the NCAP Space on the 3rd floor during the Sunday School hour to begin the journey of Confirmation. Confirmation allows students to declare their faith in Christ and are strengthened by the Holy Spirit for continuing discipleship. We pray that your student can join us for this very important discipleship journey.
Each summer our youth participate in two big mission trips:
Weekend of the Cross
Weekend of the Cross is a city-wide service weekend for low-income families needing house repairs.
senior high summer mission trip
The summer mission trip is a week-long opportunity for our youth to serve others in unique and meaningful ways while learning about different cities and cultures across the United States.
Boy Scouts Troop 15
Troop 15 is the oldest troop in Northwest Louisiana, founded by its chartering organization, Noel Memorial UMC. In the Boy Scouts of America, all boys, regardless of their religious preference, are welcomed.
