Family Matters

We believe that family was created by God.

Your family is something you have to protect against the many things that will attempt to destroy it. We believe God has called the Church to partner with families to help them be strong and centered in Christ.

Altered Student Ministry

Guiding our teens to gain independence and freedom in Christ.

GROW - The relationship students develop with Jesus during their teenage years will shape the rest of their lives. Our curriculum will help students encounter Jesus every week and influence a future generation of leaders whose passion for Jesus will transform others from the inside out

SERVE - Our Teens are given the chance to make a difference each Sunday by helping Altered Church run smoothly by offering their gifts and service. From helping in kids ministry classrooms to working in the tech booth our teens are given the opportunity to make an impact.

CONNECT - Sunday night our teens meet for youth night at 6:00 at Painesville United Methodist for fun, dynamic, laugh out loud group time that teaches, inspires and affirms identity and value in Christ. Our group time is when our teens connect with one another, build trust and develop a real-world love for Jesus.


We have a room here full of rag-tag, foolish, unsophisticated, unfinished, work-in-progress, weak, disrespected, ragamuffins, who have been called to work with a group of rag-tag, foolish, unsophisticated, unfinished, work-in-progress, wondering young people. What an honor. What a calling.
