Youth Ministry

Salado UMC has an active Youth Ministry open to all youth in Grades 7 - 12. We are called "Four Twelve" which is taken from the scripture 2nd Timothy 4:12.


From Sunday School to Wednesday night fellowship, to activities and mission opportunities, there is always something meaningful and fun to do with Salado UMC Youth! 


We are currently meeting online with the building closure due to

COVID-19, but you can get involved with the social media links below!

SUMC Youth Council

The SUMC Youth Council will be made up of one student grade representative from each grade 7-12 for the 2020-2021 school year.


What will the Youth Council grade representatives do? In short, they will assist the Youth Director in providing youth leadership and input for Youth Four Twelve. You can find further details about the position here. Applications for positions are being reviewed by the Youth Director and the current students/adults on the church Youth Committee.


Applications were open from July 20th to August 7th. Once members are selected, our first meeting will be August 16th. The meeting format will be based on current COVID-19 guidelines in place at that time.


We are excited to work together to make Youth Four Twelve better than ever!

Ministry Safe

We would like to thank you for all of the support you give the Youth Ministry. We could not minister effectively to the youth without your help. Please contact Paul Corder to find out the various ways that you can continue to volunteer your time and gifts. We require all students going on trips with us to have a completed Medical form on file with all of their information up to date.


SUMC adopted a Safe Sanctuaries Policy in 2011, and transitioned to a Ministry Safe policy in 2015. The purpose of this policy is to make our church a safe place for children to be, and for members and visitors to feel that children are safe when they are left in their Sunday School classes, nurseries, or at other events.


This policy serves to protect and inform volunteers who work with Children, Youth, and Vulnerable Adults. This policy serves as a minimum standard to be upheld by staff and volunteers for all ministries and activities at SUMC. The Central Texas Conference requires that we provide adequate adult supervision at District and Conference Events and Ministries attended by Children, Youth, and Vulnerable Adults.


The steps to complete the training program are:  

Fill out the employee/volunteer safety application & reference form
