Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6)

The Student Ministry at Dalton First includes those in 6th-12th grade. At Dalton First United Methodist Church, our hope is to partner with students as they journey through the teen years. These can be fun, frightening, confusing, challenging and rewarding times, and we want to be present through it all. Our ultimate goal is to introduce them to Jesus, to know they belong, and that they are loved and accepted.
We have a strong tradition of serving our neighbors and seek to create community where students may come and seek Christ during a number of activities. Through weekly Sunday school, youth group, mission trips, year-round retreats, and much more, we desire to help each and every individual to be encouraged and strengthened in their relationship with Christ.
