What We Are About

Los Gatos UMC Youth Ministry is a safe place where young people can connect with God and with one another.  Through study, service, and fellowship, we seek to build deep, life-giving relationships and strive to find how God is making Godself known in the world around us.  We serve students in Jr. High (grades 6-8) and Sr. High (grades 9-12).

 **What’s Happening in July**

Youth Group

Los Gatos UMC youth will only gather once during the month of July for a regular youth group on July 1st from 5pm to 7pm. Join us for dinner, games, and worship. 

Sierra Service Project (SSP)

Our youth team will be headed to Spokane, Washington to serve a local Native American community through the Sierra Service Project (SSP) from Saturday, July 21st through Sunday, July 29th. While on this trip our teens will learn the proper use of construction tools and participate in projects designed to make homes warmer, drier, and safer. There is still room on the team! If you know someone who would be interested in joining out trip please contact Robbie Frederiksen. Recycling Fundraiser

Robbie Out of Office

Robbie Frederiksen will be going on a SSP trip with his Stockton church from July 6th through July 15th. During that time he will not be responding to emails so if you have an emergency please call him on his cell phone.


Parents and youth gather to build lighting kits in hone of the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.


Recently some of the LGUMC youth gathered and assembled 10 flood relief buckets that will eventually be sent to UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) with a collection of these buckets from across the conference.



A recent youth project: Sidewalk Tiny Home Build.

Seven youth recently gathered to begin construction on a tiny home that can fit on a city sidewalk that will one day be gifted to someone who is experiencing homelessness. The next step will be to build the base/floor of the home and the next step is to frame the walls.
