The High School Ministry aims to come alongside students at a pivotal time in their lives. Through biblical teaching and life application, we unpack how to live a Christ-centered life.

Everything Else About Highland Students

Can I serve in Highland Students?

If you are interested in leading a middle school or high school small group head to hppres.org/serve-church to see how God can use you in our Highland Students ministry. 

What does the Confirmation class teach?

Confirmation encourages our students to own and articulate their faith in Christ and to become covenant partners of Highland Park Pres. The Confirmation program can be captured under three headings: 1) The Faith, 2) My Faith, and 3) Our Faith.

  1. The Faith: We will teach students the faith “once and for all handed down to the saints” (Jude 1:3). Through the Confirmation gatherings, our students will gain an understanding of the great story of God’s redemption that spans from creation to recreation.
  2. My Faith: We will give students the opportunity to own and verbalize their personal faith in Christ through studying and memorizing Scripture, memorizing the Apostle’s Creed, writing their faith statement, meeting regularly with their mentor, and discussing their faith statement and vows with an HPPC staff leader.
  3. Our Faith: We will give students the opportunity to experience Christ-centered community by actively participating in the Student Ministry of Highland Park Presbyterian Church. This will be lived out through small group Bible studies, serving opportunities, and retreats. We want our students to get a sense of what it means to be a lifelong disciple of Jesus as a member of a particular body of Christ.
