Faith Renewed:  As we head our youth group in the direction of focusing on serving others, our faith will need to be the cornerstone of all that we do! With the help of the youth we will be exploring new and engaging ways in which we can deepen our individual walks with Christ and also further our understanding of Biblical principles and the promises of the Gospel.

Games at Hope: Seeking to make the group a Christian fellowship where all are welcome as they are, our goal is to make the group have a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere where we can have fun and a good time while worshiping Christ through our play. Game time will be a constant during our Sunday Night Fellowship time.

Music Worship Plan: Much interest has been shown in furthering the music and worship time of our Sunday night youth group. We are beginning each youth session with a time of worship and prayer through our voices, hands, and souls.
Many wonderful events, along with our every week Sunday night youth group aim to allow our youth the opportunities to be Christ’s hands and feet in the community, and to grow in their personal walks with him!

Safe Sanctuaries: This is a safe place for youth! When the crowd tried to keep the children away from Jesus, he was quick to respond, “Let the children come to me.” Jesus taught that children were to be included and provided for within the community of faith. Today, the church may be the only place where some children find the unconditional love and care they so desperately need to grow and thrive. As Christians at Hope United Methodist Church, we must take our responsibilities to our children very seriously.

In all of our Children and Youth Programming, we at Hope Church

1. Require that children and youth are always with two adult volunteers at all times.

2. Require all volunteers and staff working with children and youth to have and pass background checks.

3. Follow the Safe Sanctuaries standards set forth by the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Youth Band & Worship Opportunities:

-Red Sea: This Youth Contemporary Band is always looking for more members! If you can sing, play an instrument, there is a place for you in the band. If you do not have any musical skills but would still like to be involved, we also need youth to run the soundboard and produce video montages to highlight the songs’ messages. Rehearsals are Sunday afternoon following late worship. Please contact Robert Larson, [email protected], or Colin Armstrong [email protected], for more information.
