HMUMC Student Ministry encourages, equips, and empowers students to grow as disciples who lead others to Jesus Christ.
Are you wrestling this week with all that's going on in our world?  I know I sure am!  I hope that if nothing else, you are having some incredible discussions in your home with the students and children in your life!  I know all too well how easy it is to be silent or just watch the news together as a family, but it is so important that we talk about the racial tensions, protests, and rallies and make sure we are also listening!  David and I are praying for each of your families, our community and nation.  Praying for peace and justice, as well.  We hope you'll join us in prayer!   

As summer begins and we shift gears to summer programming, if David and I can help you, share zoom call information with you, or if you'd like to reach out personally, please use our contact info below:

DO YOU KNOW A RISING 6th GRADER?
It's time for them to join STUDENT MINISTRY!  

Typically in the church calendar, this past weekend would be Promotion Sunday at HMUMC!  That means our 8th graders become High Schoolers, our preschoolers move into kids ministry, and possibly biggest of all, our 5th graders move from kid's ministry to student ministry!  We want to make sure in this transition and time of meeting digitally, we still connect with anyone moving up to student ministry!  

PLEASE SHARE THIS LINK WITH THE PARENTS OF THE RISING 6TH GRADERS YOU KNOW !  This link will give them the opportunity to register to connect with student ministry, to sign up for student ministry emails so they can participate in summer events (this email you're receiving today), and also sign up for VBS Reimagined - there is a 6th grade option for online VBS! 

Thanks for passing this link on to anyone you may know so we can begin to connect with their student as we prepare for the start of the middle school years!

Check out the video here and talk about what it means to bring your requests (prayers) humbly before God. What and how should we talk to God?
