Student Ministries

Hope Student Ministries (HSM) exist to help connect students to God through Jesus Christ while at the same time having fun, getting crazy, eating tons of food, hanging out, building community, playing games, going on cool trips – you never know what could happen!;;Come and hang out with us, meet our great leaders, and find Hope that you will never forget. HSM is a high-energy group for students in grades 6-12. HSM meets in The Big Room and The Loft. pmBoth of these rooms are accessible by entering at Entrance 6.

Regular Events

Sunday Mornings - "SUMO"  9:30-10:30 am : Student Ministry Center (entrance 6) Jr. High (6-8th grade) meet in the Loft (upstairs)  Sr. High (9-12th grade) meet in the Big room (down stairs)

Sunday Evenings - "Roots"  6:30-7:45 pm: Student Ministry Center (entrance 6) The discipleship component of our ministry. We gather for Praise and Worship the first Sunday of every month. For the second, third, and fourth Sundays, we break out by gender and grade for small group times of discussion, growth, and fellowship. This allows our big group to feel smaller. The same leaders are with the same students each time so we are able to invest relationally and get to know everyone a little better. If there is a fifth Sunday in a month it should not be missed. Fifth Sundays are very special.

Wednesdays - "One"  6:30-7:45

This week, May 10 is our annual Parking Lot Party in the parking lot at entrance 6. Come on up after school, but the party will really be going from 5:30-7:30 PM. Free hot dogs, chips, cookies, and drinks will start around 6:00.

Sr. High • This is our outreach piece of the puzzle. The night features high energy, good music, videos, and teaching. The talk is always Gospel based, and Jesus is presented. We meets in the Student Ministry Center (entrance 6). 
Jr. High •
We meet in the Hope gym (entrance 3) and go nuts. There are games, live music, parties, prizes and amazing talks as we aim to welcome friends and classmates from all over Memphis into the HSM community. Come join us and, more importantly, bring a friend!

Tutoring Tuesday Sr. High goes to Multi National Ministries to help elementary students with school work and play games with the kids. The van leaves Hope at 3:15 pm and returns at 5:30 pm. This will start back up in the Fall of 2017.

After School Pick-ups The leaders take a van to pick kids up from various schools. After pick up they will go get an after school snack then head back to Hope where kids can do homework or just hang out. Pick-up at Hope at 5:00 pm unless students will be staying for "One" then pick up will be at 7:45 pm. The school pick up for the week will be announced on Sunday mornings and posted on Instagram on Tuesday. Let the appropriate staff person know if you plan to be picked up. Jr. High contact: contact Ashley or Jeremiah for details. Sr. High-Wednesday: Contact Claire or Ben for details.
