SIXTH GRADE CONFIRMATION STUDY
Once children enter sixth grade, they participate in youth Sunday school and youth ministries. The sixth grade confirmation class meets during the Sunday School hour in the small dining room in the Family Life Center. Our sixth graders are engaged in confirmation study that focuses on our history and heritage as Methodists, what it means to be a Christian and a Methodist, and living as a disciple in our world. Confirmation study starts in September and finishes in April. Upon completion of their Confirmation study, sixth graders become members of the church on a special Confirmation Sunday.
MIDDLE SCHOOL SUNDAY SCHOOL
The seventh and eighth graders meet together and study living as Christian teens. The Middle School class meets in the Family Life Center in room #10.
HIGH SCHOOL SUNDAY SCHOOL
The senior high class (9th grade - 12th grade) engages in more in-depth Bible study and helps provide a support system for dealing with issues faced by teens. This class meets in the Annex building located at 4235 Murrells Inlet Road.
YOUTH GROUP - UNITED METHODIST YOUTH FELLOWSHIP (UMYF)
6th-12th graders are invited to join us on Sunday nights (September-April) for Youth Group from 5 PM - 7:50 PM in the Family Life Center. We share in a small group lesson and discussion, have announcements, play games, fellowship, and share a meal together. All 6th-12th graders are welcome whether or not your family attends worship services at Belin Memorial. Of course, we would love to see you at one of our four Sunday morning worship services, too!

The purpose of Youth Council is for a majority of youth to gather with adults to help discuss our youth ministry. The council helps to make decisions and hard choices concerning the direction of the youth ministry. The youth serving on Youth Council are committed to being leaders in the youth ministry and share not only their time with the youth, but also the rest of the church congregation. They meet monthly as scheduled.
