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 5:30 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. 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.
