Youth Ministry

The mission for the Youth Ministry at Hyde Park Community is to provide a safe, welcoming place where young people can experience God in amazing ways. Every person matters in God’s plan for this world and we hope to lead and empower the next generation of church leaders and Jesus followers. We are on a journey to love God and love others.

The Youth Ministry at Hyde Park Community seeks to partner with parents to help youth develop in all aspects of life while preparing for college and careers. Youth are given opportunities to explore their gifts and talents through worship, discipleship, and leadership while focusing on becoming life-long disciples of Jesus.

We’d love to talk with you more about the Youth Ministry and find ways for you to connect. And, by the way, our staff and adult leaders are bilingual, we speak both parent and teenager!

Contact Dana Calhoun at dcalhoun@hpcumc.org with any questions and to get connected.

SundaysYouth Sunday School 

At the 9:30a worship hour during the school year, students in grades 7-12th are encouraged to gather together for Youth Sunday School on the 3rd floor. The time will be focused on topics and issues relevant to teens in order to see and reflect on where God fits in and what the Bible teaches us. Always great conversations and lots of laughs. Open to students in 7-12th grade who are not in Confirmation.

Youth Group 

During the school year, join us Sunday evenings in the Little Theater (2nd Floor) from
5:30p.m. – 8:00p.m. for Youth Group!

All 7th-12th graders are welcome as we gather together for a time of sharing a meal, worship, teaching, discussion, and games.

One of the ways people can support the youth ministry is to provide a meal for the Sunday evening gatherings. The meal could be homemade or catered. Pastor Kate will contact you to coordinate the meal details.
