Online Groups

Online Groups

We grow together in our ability to respond to God’s Word.

While we are unable to meet in person, Hempfield UMC has begun to coordinate and offer our study and discussion groups virtually, using Zoom. You can download Zoom here, and create a free account.

If your group is not listed, please have the group leader contact us and we will add your group to the list. New groups will be added as they become available.

Geared toward families of elementary-aged children, Kidstuf is a 45-minute event filled with fun skits, high-energy singing, jokes for all ages, a Biblical story and interactive times with the audience, all emphasizing a Biblical virtue. Kidstuf bridges the gap into a families’ home time by means of a shared experience intended to inspire good kinds of conversation at home.

Kidstuf is usually held on the first and third Wednesday of every month, September through April, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room. We invite all to come and share in the fun of this intergenerational family event designed to teach, make you laugh and help equip families to live out life as Jesus and his disciples would.

We request that all children be accompanied by an adult as this is a shared family event. Child care is available for newborns through kindergarten with advanced registration.

Kids Konnection
Our KK ministry exists to know Jesus and make Him known through caring adults who build positive relationships with children, helping them to grow in their relationship with God while providing opportunities for kids to learn how to serve others and be a witness in the community. Classes are Sunday mornings during the 10 a.m. service.

Children who are not yet old enough for Kids Konnection are welcome in our fully staffed infant and toddler nurseries during the 10 a.m. service.
