Youth Ministries


Central UMC's youth group is a place for 6th through 12th graders to gather to learn more about God and support fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Our mission is to grow as Christ's disciples through our faith, philanthropy, and friendships. Please follow @centralfitzyouth on Instagram or join our Remind group by texting @mgidde to 81010. 

  • Our youth group meets Sundays at 10:00 a.m. for Sunday School
  • Sundays at 5:00 p.m. for United Methodist Youth Fellowship (UMYF)
  • Wednesdays at 5:00 for Worship on Wednesday (WOW)

Mary Claire Giddens

Youth Ministries Director
Mary Claire has been Central UMC's youth director since June of 2017. She graduated with an education degree from the University of Georgia and also works at Fitzgerald High School College and Career Academy. CUMC has been her home since she was a child, and she was a member of the youth group herself. Youth group was a life-changing experience for her, so her hope is that others will find their second home in Central's youth group, too.
