The nurture/hospitality team focuses on the "in-house" aspect of the youth program. They have created a prayer box, they look at attendance and seek out those who have not been in a long time. They also send out birthday cards each month for each youth birthday. This team dreams of ways to make sure all who walk through the doors at St. Luke feel welcomed and at home.

The Outreach/Missions team focuses on the "outside world" of St. Luke. They plan monthly mission projects, where they have collected canned food for food drives, collect items for homeless bags and deliver them around Sanford. They have also collected items for Hurricane relief. This team leads the group in all mission opportunities throughout the year.

The Worship team focuses on all aspects of worship within youth ministry. This team has created a Youth Praise Bands and helps to lead worship on different Sundays through the year. This team also connects the youth program with the life of the whole church through worship, in all of our 3 worship services. They also lead worship on retreats and Sunday nights when needed.

The Special Events teams plan different things for the youth to do. From helping the youth coordinator plan retreats and lock-in to planning a random open-gym or outing somewhere around town. This team is always looking for the next thing this youth program can do together outside of being in worship and UMYF together.
