Youth

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:19)

The UMY (United Methodist Youth) of Highland Park UMC are entering a time of renewal and new beginnings. The youth of HPUMC are active and meet throughout the year, on most Sundays, immediately after the 10:30 worship service. 

Young people become eligible for the youth group when they enter the seventh grade and age out of it on graduation from high school.

Youth activities include hands on mission work, a variety of fun activities and some study of God's call to them.  We are active in the church in many ways, includng helping with worship, working with kids at vacation Bible school, theater camp and Friday Fun Night, and assisting, even leading some special community events.  We are always thinking about creative ways to work as young Christians and not be boring at the same time. 

We always eat together and we plan our own activities.  We just moved our youth group room to a new location on the main floor of the church and it will rock soon!  We are blessed with good and fun people as our youth sponsors, but there is also room for more adults to help us out. 

If you are in the seventh through twelfth grades, come check us out!  If you are an adult, consider working with us.  HPUMC youth - the future is now!
