Youth – Hopewell United Methodist Church


Looking for a place to meet new friends?

Our Mission is to help students here and in the greater community become the Christians God has called us to be. For all children in 6th grade and above. The Hopewell Youth invites you to get to know them.

Sunday Morning

Offered for all middle school and high school students (6th-12th grades). Taught by adult volunteers, Sunday School is a great small group learning environment where we dive deeper into the Bible and how it relates to the context of our current day.

  • Sunday School is taught by volunteers and runs from 9:15-10:15 am each Sunday
  • January 6 – March 3, 2019 – Confirmation Class will be taught by Ms. Shannon

Sunday Afternoon/Evening

We have a great time of worship and fellowship for middle school and high school students. We value building relationships through informal times of fellowship.  We worship with energetic and meaningful music along with a message directed towards the students and times of prayer.

  • 4:15 – 5:00: Praise Band and Choir Practice (all Youth and College)
  • 5:00 – 5:45: Dinner
  • 6:00 – 7:30: Group Time

First Sunday is a time of Praise and Worship through testimonies, worship music and reflection. Second Sunday is game and sports night! We will have games and a time of fun. On third Sunday, the focus is on Service Projects, and, finally, fourth Sunday is Event Night – out on the town! During Event Night, we will visit places and enjoy a time of fun outside of church with each other.

Our Director

Shannon Murphy Holt

Director of Children/Youth Ministries
I am so excited to share God’s love with each of you.

Matthew 5:14-16

You are the light of the world; A city built on a hill cannot be hidden. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father in heaven.

If you are a flashlight, then Christ is part of the inner workings that empower you. Flashlights need batteries to work, as Disciples of Christ we need two, one battery is called prayer and the other battery is study, without these batteries the flashlight won’t turn on, but with these two batteries charged the power of Christ can flow through you. When Christ empower s you, it can be easy for others to see your light. You will grow more with Christ with your spiritual learning by studying and by communicating more with Christ. It all depends on how long you have to talk with someone. It is a testimony of you yourself that touches more and more about How to become a Christian.
