Sunday Mornings 

9:15 Worship  In Person and Online
All students, in 6th - 12th grade, are encouraged to attend our Modern Service for worship and a relevant message from one of our pastors. The worship band, videos, enhanced lighting, creative elements and engaging preaching come together to shape this service that is casual in atmosphere and modern in feeling.
Sunday Morning Students at 11:00 am
Each Sunday at 11:00 am, all 7th - 12th grade students are encouraged to join us in our Student Center where we will equip and empower them to become disciples and followers of Jesus. We play games and have fellowship as we dive into studying the bible to learn all about what God has in store for each of us.
6th Grade Confirmation at 11:00 am
Confirmation is a 7-month class for our 6th graders to learn about Methodism and their faith! Confirmation Class at HMUMC kicks off on Sunday, August 21st with a meeting for parents and students and then meets weekly at 11 am each Sunday (except holiday breaks).

Wednesday Nights

Join Us from 6:30 - 8:00 pm every Wednesday

The perfect place for students to experience authentic worship, encounter Scripture, and engage in small groups. Students in 6th - 12th grade will begin the evening with worship, enjoying some connection time with other students and listening to a short message. For the rest of the time, we will break up into small groups by grade and gender where the students and their leaders dive deeper into the message through discussion, prayer and sharing life together. 

Graduation Sunday

Sunday, May 21 at 9:15 am and 11:00 am
We love celebrating our Graduates!  If you have a student graduating from High School or College during the 2022-2023 school year, we'd love to celebrate them on May 21st!  Register online and send a current photo to by May 10th!  We'll be recognizing students at the 9:15 and 11:00am worship, so please pick a service and plan to join us for the celebration!

Join Our Student Ministry Leader Team

When it comes to student ministry, one of the most important elements are the adult volunteers who serve in the ministry. From Sunday school and small groups on Wednesday evenings to special events and retreat chaperones, the adults who volunteer to pour their lives into students make a huge difference. We’re looking for authentic adults who are willing to listen, have fun, ask questions, and show up consistently.
