Youth Ministries

Wrightsville UMC 4:12 Youth

We base our entire youth program around the verse 1st Timothy 4:12 which says, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”

Stay in the Loop with 4:12
