Mission

HSM strives to be a place where students in grades 6-12 embrace a Kingdom Culture by experiencing true fellowship, following Jesus’ Kingship, seeking His will, and advancing His Kingdom.

Highland as a whole sums up these values in three words: Gather, Grow, Go.

High School

Meet us at 10am in the Youth Room each Sunday for Student Connection!

Each Sunday morning, all students in grades 6-12 will gather in the Youth Room (1st floor Education Building) for announcements, Scripture reading, & worship, before splitting into multiple breakouts. Adult leaders, staff, and guest speakers will engage students in a number of different topics that operate on a 4-6 week rotation. Students will sign up and commit for the sessions in full length, giving them opportunities to invest in their own faith.

Meet us at 6:30pm in the Youth Room each Wednesday for Midweek!

All students in grades 9-12 will rally in the Youth Room for announcements, prayer, and worship, before splitting into Small Groups on campus. Small Groups complete a Bible Study curriculum together, while learning what community & accountability look like. On the first Wednesday of each month, we have TABLE Midweek. At TABLE, students gather for food, fellowship, worship, and an extended time of teaching with no small groups.

Camp Beloved & Beyond

This summer, we are giving our high schoolers a new service opportunity! We are going to Camp Beloved & Beyond in Rosebud, Tx for Term 4, June 24-29, 2023.

"Beloved and Beyond exists to spread the hope and love of Jesus Christ with people who have differing abilities through camps, socialization, and on the job training while growing the community to embrace the same."

Every summer, HSM sees the lives of our students changed at Sondays Camp. I, myself was saved at a Christian summer camp. There's just something special about camp. Beloved & Beyond seeks to make sure the thousands of young people who have special needs can find a place where they feel they belong. We believe this camp will be a great way for our students to get out of their typical daily routine (comfort zone), have an experience where they can stretch themselves, and live out Kingdom Culture. 

How do I sign my student up?
We have reserved 46 slots for students in grades 9-12 currently. Our students will have the opportunity to serve in 1 of 2 forms:

  • BE Buddy (Ages 16+): Be a one-on-one counselor and help a camper have the best week of their life.
  • JR. Buddy (Age 15): Serve in a camper cabin and help buddies, campers, and staff where needed most.

Please follow the instructions on this PDF.
