Registrations and Forms

Sunday School


Join us for Sunday school as we explore various biblical topics and life application lessons.
10 AM - 10:45 AM in the Family Life Center.

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 sixth through eighth graders meet together and study living as Christian teens. The Middle School class meets in the Family Life Center in room #11.

High School Sunday School

The senior high class (9th - 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 Family Life Center in room #10.

Youth Group

United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF)

6th -12th graders are invited to join us on Sunday nights for Youth Group from 5 PM - 7 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!

Prayer Breakfast


Pawleys Island Prayer Breakfast (Waccamaw schools) meets every first and third Tuesday of the month at 7 AM during the school year in the St. Paul's Waccamaw United Methodist Church's Youth Building.

Youth Summer Programs



Salkehatchie is more than just a church outreach program. It is more than just a volunteer group and it is more than just a summer youth camp. Salkehatchie is faith in action. Youth volunteers head into rural, low-income towns to work in difficult conditions, allowing themselves to be the face, hands and feet of Christ.

Volunteers spend one week:

  • Performing home repairs in teams, doing projects as small as a building a ramp or as big as remodeling an entire kitchen. (All skill sets are welcomed and encouraged.)

  • Making a bond with families of different backgrounds than their own.

  • Learning about teamwork and making friendships that last a lifetime.

Salkehatchie strips youth of their familiar roles for seven days. Experience the significance of going unplugged, with a limited regimen in an open learning environment. You will be encouraged to do things for yourself, problem solve and learn from one another.”

Youth Council

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.
