UMYF Praise

As children of God and followers of Jesus Christ, we are called to pray every day, worship, and praise God in all that we do. Here are just a few of the ways we lift up our voices in praise to our loving God. For more information contact the Youth Ministry Director, Brenda Lowe at or 660-747-8158. 

Youth Praise Band
Composed of talented junior and senior high youth, Background Noise meets every Monday afternoon. Members frequently sub in with the Connection praise band, while the youth praise band occasionally leads Sunday worship. Any youth who would like to share their talents with their peers is encouraged to participate.

Hidden Treasures Puppet Team
The puppet ministry has become a strong part of our congregation and our worship services as well. The youth perform during both services, in ministry settings, and are periodically invited to give performances in regional churches. They also participate in mission trips. The Hidden Treasures Puppet Team practices Sunday evenings at the church.
