“Our mission for the Mogadore United Methodist Church youth ministry is to build faithful leaders who mirror the love and grace of Jesus Christ in every area of their lives, imitating the teachings and actions of Christ through fellowship, study, service, and reflection.
My name is Caleb Lipocky, and I am the Youth Ministry Leader here at Mogadore United Methodist Church! I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio, and I moved with my family to Mogadore when I was 20 years old. I am a proud graduate of Malone University, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Youth Ministry and Educational Ministries.
I am passionate about working with young people, and it is a privilege to serve and be with the youth here at MUMC and the Mogadore community!
I like playing and talking about video games in my spare time (some might say it’s an obsession). Basketball is my favorite sport, and I love cheering for my Cleveland Cavaliers! Pizza is my favorite food, and for me, coffee has become a necessity of life. I enjoy walks in the summertime with my fiancee Marie and reading in my down time.
What we do
Every other Sunday evening (or two Sundays a month), we have Youth Gathering for our Junior and Senior High youth! At Youth Gathering, we meet for fellowship, food, and a lesson (including Bible study, games, discussion, reflection, and application)! Youth Gathering is 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on certain Sundays! Come join us for fun, food, and thought!
Every Sunday morning, 9:30 to 10:15, we have Sunday School in the youth room! We enjoy a morning snack and a brief time of discussion and/or worship. Currently, we are watching Rob Bell’s NOOMA video series! After Sunday School, we go straight to the Sanctuary for Sunday worship! We hope to see you there, bright and early!
We plan and schedule fun activities and mission opportunities for our young people! Lock-ins, concerts, camps, amusement parks, community events, and sports events are among the many opportunities we have for them! Events are posted online, and if you wish to be contacted for more information, send me an email! I would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you have!
Some of our youth, as an opportunity to practice leadership skills, are members of our Youth Council! Youth Council is responsible for the planning and organization of our youth ministry, as well as the future and direction of the youth ministry. Our own youth play a part in shaping the youth ministry that they themselves and their peers participate in!
