7th-12th Grade

Faith Parry

Pastor & Youth Minister

I started to serve Fleming Island UMC in June of 2022. My husband (AJ), Daughter (Abigail), and I moved to the Fleming Island area from Ft. Walton Beach, FL. One of my favorite things about church is youth ministry. Most students think I'm ancient at the age of 35. Still, I believe this stage of life is one of the more important in a person's spiritual development.

I love animals, being outside (except for our 90% humidity), riding motorcycles with AJ and Abi, learning new technologies, binging Big Bang Theory, and watching young people experience God in their lives in new ways.

I hope to meet you and your student soon!


Confirmation for students 7th-12th grade will start November 6th and run on Sunday evenings through March. These lessons are for any student who has not yet been confirmed or would like to go through a refresher of the basics of Christianity.

What is Confirmation? It's a time for youth to learn what it means to be Christian, ask questions, and take ownership of their faith. At the end of the lessons, the students can choose to be baptized, reaffirm their baptisms for those previously baptized, and publicly profess their faith. This step is foundational for claiming Christianity as their own.

Exciting Things for the Children & Youth
August 11th, 2022
A lot's been done in a small amount of time! I want to give Katie a big thank you for all her hard work to get ready for the Back to School bash we had this past week. It was a different kind of Sunday from what we had in the past, but we consider it a success. The kids had fun, and we got to talk with some families we hadn't seen in a while. Kids' rooms were cleaned and refreshed for the start of...
