Weekly Youth Schedule

Highland Youth Fellowship is our most high impact time for crazy games, passionate worship, teaching and small groups on your level.  There’s always food and hang-out time.  Bring a friend and have a great time with us!

Sunday Night Youth Group for Middle and High School:

  5:00 – 7:00 PM (Meet in Bradley Hall)

Regular spring semester Youth Group meetings begin on January 6, 2019, and run through May 19, 2019.  There will be no Youth Group on February 3, February 10, April 14, or April 21.

 

February – Meant to Be  “We’re meant to be.” It’s how all of our favorite movies, songs, and books talk about love—as if the secret to an amazing relationship is a little bit of destiny, a whole bunch of feelings, and a tiny dash of magic. So it makes sense, when we observe the not-so-perfect, real-life relationships modeled by our friends, parents, and favorite celebrities, that we might start to wonder, “Wait—is that how relationships are meant to be?” In this 3-week series, you’ll get a better lens for evaluating your current and future dating relationships as you see that the secret to a relationship that’s “meant to be” is to stay close to Jesus, date with purpose, and know who you’re looking for.

 

March – Sincerely God  The Bible. We all know reading it is important (or at least that’s what we’ve been told), but if we’re being honest, we probably don’t give it the time or attention we know we should. Sometimes we avoid Scripture because it seems boring or irrelevant. Other times we avoid it because it’s too time-consuming, inconvenient, or maybe even convicting. So how do we change that? In this 4-week series, we’ll see and engage with the Bible in a new way as we discover that the Bible is a love letter, a guide, an invitation, and something that’s meant to be lived (not just read).

 

April – Good Story   For some of us, the Easter story is a little unclear. (It has something to do with Jesus dyeing Easter eggs with a rabbit, right?) For others, we’ve heard the Easter story, seen the Easter plays, and attended Easter services so many times that it has almost become white noise. In this Easter series, we’ll challenge our assumptions and attitudes about the Easter story as we see that the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection is more than just a story—it’s true! And it’s good news for the entire world.

 

 

May – Family Feud   Every family feuds. Whether the latest feud is about curfews, chores, harsh words, someone’s attitude, or someone else’s questionable choices, everyone knows what it’s like to experience conflict with a family member. Although some families may have more struggles or conflict than others, every family can learn how to fight more fairly. We’ll finish the school year with this unit that will challenge us to let our relationship with God transform our relationships with our family as we seek to be more patient, forgive more often, and be more honoring.

 

 

Other Weekly Events:

Sunday School  Enjoy breakfast snacks while learning about God at 9:30 am every Sunday. Meet in Youth Room (213) across from the church library. Curriculum – FATHOM: The mission of Fathom is to dive deep into the story of God that we find in the Bible. We’ll encounter Scriptures filled with inspiration and encouragement, and we’ll also explore passages that are more complicated and challenging. Each lesson will focus on one passage, but will also launch into the larger context of how God’s story is being told through that passage. More importantly, each lesson will explore how God’s story is intimately tied to our own stories, and how a God who is beyond our imagination can also be a God who loves us deeply and personally.

Wednesday Nights Join us for all ages dinner in Bradley Hall at 5:45. After dinner, come up to the Youth Room at 6:30 for a fun and casual Bible Study. Each week we’ll watch a Chuck Knows Church video, and then discuss it. Each week is totally separate, so you can jump in at any time and not a miss a beat!

Confirmation Confirmation Class meets Wednesdays in the Spring from 6:00 – 8:00pm in the Youth Room.  Our next class will begin in January 2020.  Students in 8th grade and older are paired with an adult mentor who joins them on an intense journey of discipleship, learning the Bible, Christian teachings and church history. As part of the Confirmation journey, youth will go on an awesome retreat to Salter Path Beach (required in order to participate in Confirmation; March 20-22, 2020)
