United Methodist Youth Fellowship - open to all youth in grades 7th - 12th grades and our college students, as they want to visit. Meetings are weekly on Sunday evenings from 5:00 – 7:00 pm, August thru May, and monthly in the summer.
Bible Study – during the school year our youth meet each Wednesday morning at 7:00 am for breakfast and spiritual growth.
Spiritual Retreats – at least 3 times throughout the year our youth participate in spiritual retreats to ground themselves in their faith and to further explore their spiritual walk.
30 Hour Famine – our youth participate in this annual event held at Lakeshore UMA each year. The group literally goes 30 hours without eating in an effort to raise money for impoverished countries.

- The background images used on this page are not royalty-free. Please use images from your own collection.  
 
- The page SAMPLE is a "hidden" page that contains sets of elements grouped into "sections": Title + photo, Icons + text, text + icons + video, etc...  
 
Select the section that best fits the design desired and copy/paste it onto your page (to “paste” in a specific location, right-click and choose Paste). Be sure to take the entirety of the section by selecting its external container (the one containing the background image or color). 
 
- Important: each "section" must have one, and only one, inner container (element group) for the section content. The outer margins of this sub-container set minimum distances from section boundaries.
 
- The "Horizontal" button in the "Selection" menu controls the automatic centering of an element. 

- To change the order of elements - i.e. place an element below another in a "relative" positioned container (like most of the content in the sections), use the Element Explorer on the left: green "arrow buttons" will appear when it is possible to change the order. Icons under an element and above the element group allow to put elements onto the same "line" and modify alignment.
 
- The entire header menu can be modified in its dedicated Layer (e.g. "Base_MenuRetractable"; simply change the page’s Layer to use a different menu). Use this to modify menu links (by copy/pasting existing links), change the colors etc. Note that these elements are pre-programmed to work with one another, so try to avoid “dragging” new ones on that could disrupt the general responsive behavior of the menu (favor using copy & paste).
