Hop 1st UMC Youth

  • Our Youth meet on Sunday Nights throughout the year for what we call "Sunday Night Youth." We begin our night with a time of Food and Fellowship from 5:30pm-6:00pm. At 6:00pm we go over announcements, have a short time of worship, and a prayer. Afterwards, we break off into boy's and girl's small groups. We end our night with a group game which starts around 7:00pm and is done by 7:30pm. We also incorporate Guest Speakers, Community Service/Outreach Projects, Game Nights, Fun Outings, and Parties into our Sunday Night (and occasionally other days/nights of the week) schedule. 

  • Our youth also attend the Hopkinsville Discipleship Now Retreat in the fall and the Engage Retreat at Camp Loucon in the spring. We encourage our 10th-12th grade students to participate in the Madisonville Chrysalis which is a spiritual renewal weekend held semi-annually. We join with other area churches to take part in the "Be the Church" outreach in Nashville, TN for both the "winter outreach" in the fall, and the "summer outreach" in the spring. We also participate in more local missions work in Hopkinsville throughout the year (Feeding America, Micah Mission...). And every summer we take a bigger trip to attend a Youth Conference Ministries Event (The Great Escape, Fun in the Son, or Son Servants). 

  • We'd love for your middle and/or high school student(s) to join us!
