No matter who you are or where you come from, if you are in 7th-12th grade, you are welcome at HPUMC Youth!
Our plan is to partner with parents to help them raise their families in the Christian faith.
We know that middle and high school students are busier than ever-our goal is to create environments in the midst of their busy weeks where they can encounter the Living God
and grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. Welcome to HPUMC Youth!
CLICK HERE to sign up to provide a meal! Thanks in advance.

The Youth Council is a small group of students who represent the larger youth group of Highland Park United Methodist Church. They are the body that gives input as to what events and/or programs our youth group creates or participates in. They also help determine meeting times and locations, as well as participate in behind-the-scenes ministry stuff like branding and marketing.
Each Sunday, a different Hospitality Team, is responsible for providing dessert, helping meal providers unload, setting up, fixing drinks, saying the blessing, serving, and clean-up.
Youth Leadership Training
Each first Sunday, youth assist with communion.
Each third Sunday, youth lead children’s moment.
Each fourth Sunday, youth lead the morning prayer and usher.
We always encourage all our youth to serve!
Please contact Hope Whaley, Director of Youth Ministries, for more information.
