SHUMY is a place where students can join together to explore life and faith. It is a safe place to ask questions and invite friends no matter where they stand in their beliefs. We want to foster discussion about  how the Gospel of Jesus Christ should impact every area of our lives. We will seek to live that out together in times of fun and serving. God relentlessly pursues us, and nothing can separate us from His love and mercy. No one is beyond the forgiveness offered by what Jesus did on the cross. Let’s work together to share the amazing depth of God’s love with everyone we meet!

Each week we’ll meet at 5:30 to eat & hangout in youth room, play a game in the gym, watch a silly youtube clip, hear about what’s going on, worship in song, hear about what it means to be a follower of Jesus & have time to build community in our small groups!  Invite some friends to relax and give them a chance to hear the Gospel. At the end we pray as a group for all that is going on in our lives. This is a time to hangout with friends, ask questions about being a a follower of Jesus, or just soak it in and listen as you try to make decisions about what you believe.

Snapshot: 5:30-7:30pm Sundays, Dec. 2, 9 & 16. We’ll talk about how we view material things, & the reason & timing of Jesus’s incarnation.


Spend some time with God everyday by reading the Bible. It is the best way to get to know His heart and character. These scriptures are just starting points. Use them to get you going if you don’t know where to start. They are all on what we are covering at Snapshot this month.
