Youth Ministry

Our Commitment

At Lindale we take seriously our commitment to nurture youth in the Christian faith. We make a covenant with parents during each and every child dedication that we as a congregation will pray for the child, as well as invest our time and energy into nurturing their faith so that they might grow to experience and embrace the love of God. To this end we seek to relate personally to each youth at Lindale, as well as provide programming for each step of their journey.

Sunday School

Lindale has Sunday School classes for both JMYF and MYF. Within Sunday School we focus on studying God’s Word, lively discussion, and developing a love for each other as members of God’s family.

Wednesday Evenings

At Lindale we have a fall and spring series of Wednesday Evening gatherings. We meet at church every other week for 12 weeks. The evenings begin with an intergenerational meal at 5:45 pm followed by activities for all ages from 6:45 to 8 pm. During that time we have activities for children age 3 through seniors in high school.

Youth Groups


Junior Mennonite Youth Fellowship (JMYF) is for students in grades 6-8. They meet twice a month as part of our Wednesday Evenings at Lindale. During their time together they have a variety of activities including game nights, Bible studies, service opportunities and more!

Mennonite Youth Fellowship (MYF) is for students in grades 9-12. The MYF meet every other Wednesday evening in addition to some weekend activities. They have game nights, service activities, times for worship, Bible studies, weekend retreats, and more!

It is our hope that your youth will experience Lindale as a warm and caring place where they are known by name and inspired to grow in their Christian Faith!
