Grand Valley Youth Ministry

is the name of the Shared Student Ministry of the United Methodist Churches (UMCs) across the Valley from Fruita to Palisade

Any student, grades 5 - 12 may participate.  GVYM follows the District 51 and usually meets on Sunday nights from 5:00pm - 7:00pm (please confirm schedule and location at ).

Most often GVYM meets at First UMC, 522 White Ave, Grand Junction.  A meal, worship, learning time with small group conversation, fun and games are all part of the experience.  Students from any walk of life are welcome to join us.  You don't have to be a member of a UMC or any church.  You don't have to have been baptized or confirmed or have any experience at all with church.  You can bring your questions and doubts.  You can bring your self and your friends.  You will find a warm welcome, genuine acceptance and authentic friendship here. We learn how to apply our faith, support and encourage each other.

To inquire about the group or to be added to the GVYM email list, please contact Jessica Mays at First UMC Grand Junction (970) 242-4850 or visit the Youth website at
