UMC Red Bank Children’s & Youth Group Programs


Children are curious, energetic, imaginative, and full of wonder. Youth grapple with larger questions about how the world works, and issues of friendship and belonging. At UMCRB, we welcome children and youth to a special place where they are known and loved, where their questions are encouraged, and where they can gather to find meaning, faith and purpose for their lives. We live this out through our many regular programs for young people: Sunday School, Bagels+Faith, Youth Groups, Vacation Bible School, and the Red Bank Theatre for Young Audiences; and periodic special events such as Trunk or Treat and Plant & Play. All adults who work with children and youth are screened, trained and have undergone a background check.

All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.” – Isaiah 54:13
“…Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” – Matthew 17:20
Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not just seven times, but seventy-seven times!
” – Matthew 18:22
We are a Service oriented group. We work locally volunteering our services in our church and community as well as travel each summer to Appalachia to do mission work with those in need.
