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!


Hi everyone, We will be sending daily challenges through text & posting them on the Facebook & instagram pages. We’ll read through the gospels, have a video to watch & an article to read or something to guide us in prayer. We will also trying to host times to play some easily accessible online games so we can interact. On Sunday night we will try a live youtube video & chat & I am looking into ways we could do video in Bible studies. If you have any other ideas on how we can do some fun stuff let me know. We might try a few meme contests, sharing some music playlists, & a few other things to keep us all connected.
Here is one way you all can help if you have some of this stuff around or see it while you are stuck in line at the store & the line is back to the sporting goods isle. THe Methodist home needs some donations for their students since they can’t leave campus now. See the attachment for the items. if you get any you can take them out there yourself if you all need a trip to get out or contact me & I’ll gladly drop them off for you.
I’m praying for you all everyday & my prayer is that this time will be used by the Holy Spirit to clear out our hearts of the clutter like Jesus cleared the temple & allow only room for Him to reside. No room for false idols, no consumerism, not us trying to bargain with God that we will follow Him if He does what we want… just our hearts being a space for Him who created them. Love you all!  In Christ, Brian Shumard  859.684.5626  bshumard@southernhillsumc.org

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, March 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29. We’ll meet together for a meal, communion, small groups & talk about how Jesus built into His disciples & teaches us to share the Gospel.





Spend some time with God everyday by reading the Bible. It is the best way to get to know His heart and character.
