Wednesday Night Group

There is not a group currently meeting at the church for young adults on Wednesday nights. If you are interested in a weekday opportunity with young adults in the church and in the community, please contact Nicole Smith at and she will be happy to work with you to create a new opportunity for young adults in the Ames area.

Puppets 2.0

Expressions of God happen in many different ways at First UMC. The puppet ministry is one expression that truly makes our understanding of scripture fun. Opportunities for young adults to speak out through the puppets in worship here and at other churches abound. Practice, practice, practice, and lots of fun help the young adults bring God’s message of love in a way that everyone can understand.

Time: Sunday Mornings, 9:45-10:45, Room W203
