The community at Alpharetta First really believes in young people and because we do, we have worked hard to establish, implement and empower AFUMC Roots Student Ministry. Roots is an excellent, holistic ministry for students in middle and high school. We are a fun, meaningful, Christ-centered group of people who are intentional about helping students to develop, deepen and express their relationship with Jesus Christ and others.
The vision of the AFUMC Roots Youth Ministry is simple… to connect students and families with God and each other in a relevant, biblical context; to know Jesus Christ and to make him known.
There are several things we believe to be essential in achieving and maintaining our vision…
- [Create Meaningful Environments] with students in mind. It is in these environments that we realize community.
- [Build Community] through opportunities to connect with God and each other.
- [Encourage Transparency and Honesty] we believe these are the fertile soil from which intimate relationships with God and each other are created.
- [Establish a Safe Place] Students from all walks of life, will be encouraged to ask deep questions about matters of faith and to work toward thoughtful answers.
- Maximize every opportunity to [Welcome all Students and Families] into the full life of Alpharetta Methodist.
