"Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you."
🔥 Fan the Flame 🔥
The idea for Fan the Flame started in 2021 as an idea to grow the Student Ministry of Susanna Wesley UMC and to be come a pillar in the community for all students to attend. Starting Fall 2022 the idea for Fan the Flame will come to reality!
Fan the Flame is a worship service dedicated to students.
Too often our young people do not see themselves reflected in the style, topics, and community of our congregational worship. While integrating them into the body of our faith communities continues to be a goal, so too is creating a space for them to worship in ways that reflect their dynamic community together.
Our student ministry is open to teens in grades 6th-12th.

Student Ministry Bible Study
Join us on Wednesday evenings from 6pm-7:30pm in the Student Ministry room (classroom 5) to discover your true worth and purpose while growing in ability to see your life from God's perspective. This is a beginner-level study.
In Canvas: A Portrait of God, students will learn that the Bible is, from beginning to end, the story of God. It's about God's character and his relationship to the world he created. God is with us, suffers alongside of us, is all-powerful, and our closest ally and friend. The four-session study consists of an Immerse Lesson the first week, followed by three more traditional lessons.
Meet our Student Ministry Director
Our Student Ministry Director, Sebastian Brock, came to us as a guest in December 2019. He started assisting the former Student Ministry (Youth Director) with the Youth Ministry as he served in her former ministry at our sister church, Bethany UMC in Gloucester Point for many years. Sebastian as been working with students in a support role for the past 12 years. When the Student Ministry Director position came open, Sebastian was recommenced for the position. He initially started off in a volunteer capacity until he completed interviews and approval from the Leadership Board. In late February 2022 the Leadership Board approved the hire of Sebastian to be the Student Ministry Director starting March 1, 2022. Sebastian thinks outside the box and we are more than excited to see where he takes the Student Ministry here at Susanna Wesley.
