what's going on?

The pumpkins are coming! The pumpkins are coming!

Our annual pumpkin patch will be open Oct. 11-31,
and all proceeds will benefit youth missions! How can you help?

Volunteer: If you want to work the patch, please contact Christine
as we are changing a few things to keep everyone safe.

Buy pumpkins Oct. 11-31! And spread the word that the Pumpkin Patch is open! 

While we are sheltering in place, our youth have regularly

scheduled Zoom meetings and activities. We'd love to

have new students participate!

heights student ministries

All students are welcome here!

Our hope for Student Ministries at AHUMC is that every student finds a place of belonging here - a place where they can connect with God and with other students and caring adults through fellowship, mission and study.

Our schedule changes throughout the year, to meet the needs of our students. Generally, middle school (6th-8th) and high school (9th-12th) youth have ministry programs on Sunday evenings, including a snack supper ($3) at 5 p.m. Please check the weekly announcements for our current youth schedule.

Sunday School classes meet at 9:40 a.m. Sundays in the Youth Room (from the Narthex, which is just outside the Sanctuary, take the  stairs up to the top floor; Youth Room is at the end  of the hall on the right.)

Please contact Youth Director Christine Coleman (ccoleman@ahumc.com; 713-591-7607) for more information, and scroll down to find out how to be informed about upcoming youth events.

Youth in mission

Our youth participate in a significant mission trip each summer, usually traveling within the state (or a neighboring state) to do light construction and landscaping work for those who have suffered from storms, or elderly clients who are unable to make home improvements themselves.

Throughout the year, numerous mission opportunities are offered, including: traveling with the Five & Two Food Truck to serve food in an area of need, participating in literacy events in Fort Worth, and assisting with church events.

Glen Lake Camp

Youth participate in summer camp at Glen Lake Camp each year, including serving as Counselors in Training. AHUMC also participates in student-led Mid-Winter retreats in January and February each year.

Youth in Leadership

Youth are invited and encouraged to build their leadership skills through their service to the church. Serving on CTCYM mission trip, Advisory Boards for the Central Texas Conference, Project Transformation summer reading program, Five & Two Food Truck events at the Presbyterian Night Shelter, and leading groups at Vacation Bible School are some of the ways our youth lead through service to our church and community.
