Welcome to HSUMC's Youth Page!
We are excited to tell you about the amazing things Jesus is doing with and among our youth. God calls us to be in community so that we grow together in grace as we worship, pray, have fun, serve and share our joys and our struggles. All youth are welcome to be part of the HSUMC youth group.
Below you will find some of our yearly scheduled programming. On the side, we have updated news and events. Be sure to sign up for our email updates and check us out online with our Facebook Parent’s Youth Page and Student Instagram!
