Our youth group, consists of Summit Student Ministries for 6-12th grade youth and Hilltoppers  for children in kindergarten-5th grade. This group meets every Sunday night at Spruce Pine UMC 11090 Hwy 226 South,   Spruce Pine, NC 28777.

Summit and Hilltoppers is a unique collaborative ministry that consist of 10 UMC churches across three counties coming together to form one ministry.

We meet every Sunday night from 530 to 7:30 PM. Our evening starts off with dinner together, and is followed by the time of fellowship and then a time of study and learning.

The Summit students go on several retreats throughout the year. Our annual winter retreat to Lake Junaluska is a chance for students to get away and spend time in worship and fellowship together. Ignite US is our middle school retreat for those students in sixth through eighth grade. This offers them a chance to have fun and be themselves in an atmosphere where they can grow in their faith. Our summer mission trip is Carolina Cross Connection where we spend a week with other churches from across North Carolina ministering to those in need.
