Young Disciples

Here at Sand Point Community United Methodist Church, we believe that young people are the heart of the church.

We do our best to make our space a welcoming and affirming space for the young people in our community.

Our young disciples ministry at Sand Point Community are for young people 0-18.

Meet our Youth and Children's Pastor


Brittney Gilleland is a graduate of Greenville University in Greenville, Illinois. She majored in children, youth and family ministries. Following her undergraduate work, Brittney attended Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Chicago.

Brittney has been at Sand Point since 2021 and has a desire to grow, reach out and make connections within the community.

In her spare time Brittney likes reading, watching tv and spending time with her friends and Labradoodle, Luna Louise.


Here at Sand Point Community we believe that children experience their faith through their senses. Each week young disciples ages 0-5th grade, meet with Miss Brittney in the chapel for a lesson, snack and time getting to know their friends who worship with them each week.

During the 10am service young disciples have a time up front with Miss Brittney and then they are dismissed to the chapel for the remainder of the service.

We are a trauma informed ministry and take the safety and well being of your young people seriously.

The constant growth and spiritual well-being of the young people in our care doesn't stop when they enter middle school.

In fact, this is when young people need community the most.

Our program for middle and high school students meets each week from 11:30am-12:30pm for formation hour. This time will follow the worship service. Students will play games, have a snack and learn what it means to be in true community and fellowship with a church community.

We are a trauma informed ministry and take the safety and well being of your young people seriously.

This is a queer affirming youth group.
