Scripture is clear that parents have been given the joy and responsibility of raising their children in the ways of Jesus. Parents are the primary voice and point of influence in a student’s life. As students experience both pain and joy in life, parents are to help their kids see those things in light of the gospel.
That being true, here at HMUMC it is our goal to come along side parents, and to support you and partner with you in the spiritual development of your students! Please let us know of any way we can serve you.
