HSM strives to be a place where students in grades 7-12 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.
Each Sunday during the school year, all students will meet in the Youth Room (1st floor Education Building) for announcements, Scripture reading, worship, and then split into grade specific classrooms. Adult leaders will teach and engage the students with God’s Word.
We hope to see you on Sundays!
Each Wednesday night, all students will meet in the Youth Room for a time of fellowship, worship, teaching, and small groups. Small groups are led by young adult leaders who have a passion for God's Word and for discipleship. On the first Wednesday of each month, we have TABLE Midweek. At TABLE, students meet in the Youth Room for food, fellowship, worship, and an extended time of teaching with no small groups. We hope to see you on Wednesdays!

We are headed back to Sondays Camp this summer, July 9-14! This is always a special week for Highland Student Ministry and for students to invite friends to church. It's a week filled with fellowship, games, worship, and teaching from God's Word. This event is for students who have completed grades 6-12 as of June 2023. In case you forgot how awesome last summer was, here's a video.
Registration is open!
There are two primary ways to serve with HSM:

Adult Volunteers: Parents & adults serve HSM in a variety of different ways; such as, event chaperones, host homes, teachers, drivers, hospitality, and mentors.
