Myrtle Beach, SC Youth Mission: June 14-20 – Cancelled

Blue Knob, PA Youth Mission: July 19-25 – Cancelled

Being the hands and feet of Christ is a major part of our DNA and calling as Weddington UMC Youth. With sadness we announce that TEAMeffort informed us all of their Summer mission trips have been cancelled.

They made this tough decision because they do not have sufficient information about the status of the virus across the nation to ensure the safety of folks on trips. In the meantime, we are exploring what it could look like to be involved in local missions. If you know of opportunities, please let Meredith or Andrew know. For more information, please contact Rev. Meredith Hinton.



International Mission Trip: July 5-11 (16+) – Postponed

We would like to announce that our international mission trip will be postponed. It’s our hope to offer this trip at a later date this year.

This mission trip is for rising 6th graders who move up in June 2020. SERVE will be held at Weddington UMC! The cost is $75 per person with a $37.50 deposit required at registration. The deadline to register is July 15. Click here to register.



Youth Fall Retreat, at Look Up Lodge, Travelers Rest, SC: November 13-15


We are working to finalize details for the remainder of the trips for 2020. Please check back soon!


* PHONES Considering the impact that phones make on our trips, we have decided that to “retreat” we need to disconnect therefore, we do not allow phones as well as any other devices, “iPods, tablets, etc.” that can connect to the internet on any trips. Adult chaperones will have phones available for our youth to contact their parents if needed.
