Aldersgate Youth is for students from 6th grade to 12th grade. We strive to build a strong faith community where everyone is welcomed as who they are. Youth group is a place where our young members can feel free to explore their faith and questions while building connections and strengthening relationships with each other and our greater Aldersgate family. Throughout the school year, we enjoy going on youth outings (getting boba, making lunch together, and more) and having lock-ins at the church. Our youth are also involved with the NJAUMC church camps (Junior High Camp and Asian American Summer Camp) during the summer.
College & Young Adult
We plan to have a meeting once a month. If you are interested in joining our College & Young Adult group, please contact Cory Gong.
Our "Into The World" logo was designed by Marice Shiozaki in 2013. The three cranes symbolize "good fortune and longevity" and also the Holy Trinity. They are flying out of the circle as a symbol of going "Into the World."
We have been working with diverse local organizations such as Hotel de Zink, Rebuilding Together Penninsula, Habitat for Humanity, Standford Blood Drive, Family Giving Tree, Second Harvest Food Bank, and so on.
