First United Methodist Church of Bristol’s local UMYF Youth Group is designed for ages 12-18 and has chosen the title of the FUMC M.A.F.I.A. (My Almighty Father In Action) to reflect their desire to take action on their beliefs, to represent the “family” feel of our church and our youth group in particular, and as a reminder that our “God Father” has the power to change lives.


We have a Sunday School hour every Sunday at 9:30am where we discuss how our faith can be applied to real, current issues that we encounter. We pray together and lift each other up to face the next week.


Every Wednesday, it’s time for some fun! We meet from 6:30-8pm for a brief Lesson and Prayer and lots of fun activities.
