West Heights Youth (WHY)

Join our vibrant youth group, where inclusivity, food, and fun are at the heart of everything we do! We provide a welcoming haven for students in grades 6th-12th, offering a space to discover God's boundless love, enjoy exciting activities, and share a delicious meal together.

At our youth group, you'll find a blend of fun, faith, friends, and food that's sure to brighten your day. Engage in spirited games, meaningful conversations, and be part of a community where everyone finds their rightful place.

Our Social Principles guide our interactions:

  • Honor the Place: Every space we use in West Heights, and anywhere else, is a privilege and a safe space.  We will treat it as such.

  • Honor the Purpose: We aren't here just to be here.  Everything we do has a purpose.  We will honor that purpose by participating as fully as possible and helping others participate as fully as possible.

  • Honor the People: In order for this to be a safe space, everyone deserves your respect, and you deserve everyone's respect.  Everyone with good intentions has a place here.  Do not cuss, keep a good attitude, and keep your behavior in check.  We are a Reconciling Community and West Heights UMC is a Reconciling Church, so inclusive language is a must.  The only person that doesn't have a place at West Heights Youth is someone who willingly hurts others.

Join us at WHY, where love, laughter, and togetherness create unforgettable experiences for all.
