Watch Live Give

At PHUMC Youth, we believe that God has a great plan and purpose for each and every student. We offer weekly opportunities for all grades 6th -12th to connect with God and each other. Our purpose is to help our youth grow in their relationship with Jesus and build long-lasting relationships with friends.
