ALIVE is all about teenagers experiencing Jesus alive in their life. Our mission is to compel the expression of God's love through friendship, worship and service.
Our vision statement at ALIVE is:
We see an
Atmosphere where Jesus

Visualize teenagers who are
Energized to overcome life struggles through God's love.
WE ARE ALIVE in Jesus Christ!
Youth Sunday School
Separate Sunday school classes for Jr. High and Sr. High meet from 9:45 to 10:45 each Sunday morning, including summers. Jr. High's meet in Room 406 and Sr. High's meet in Room 407.
This class is open to youth from 8th grade through 12th grade and usually meets on Sunday afternoon beginning in January. Confirmation is a journey that leads youth to confirm their baptism and make a personal commitment to Jesus Christ. This class will also focus on Methodism and Christianity and teach about other religions as well.
A week at Lakeview Methodist Conference Center in Palestine Texas. Open to all children and youth who have completed the 4th-12th grades.
Youth Missions Opportunities
In addition to our monthly outreach to Compassion International, we have several summer work camp opportunities including Big House (Jr. High) and U.M. Army (Sr. High).
Adventures and Trips
Winter Retreats to Lakeview, Mystery Trips, Choir Tour, Schlitterbahn, Houston Astros games and Christian Concerts are just a few of our yearly adventures and trips.
