Highland Students:
High School

Led by Michael Atwell, our High School ministry aims to minister to students at a pivotal time in their lives. Students are faced with all sorts of new challenges and struggles that often oppose who Christ has called us to be. Through biblical teaching and life application, we want to unpack how you can live a Christ-centered life despite the temptations that come your way. We discuss how you can have Godly relationships with the opposite gender, and help you understand how you can serve and lay down your life as Christ did for us. We help equip students to represent Christ in the classroom, in sports, in the community, in friend groups, and in family relationships.

Upcoming Events

Highland Students—MS & HS—San Francisco

June 19–25, Completed 7th–12th Grades
This summer, Highland Students (7th-12th grade) will be traveling to San Francisco, California. For those that went on this trip in 2015, it was an incredibly life-changing experience. Once again, we will be partnering with San Francisco City Impact and will be serving in the heart of the Tenderloin District. The Tenderloin District is the inner-city of San Francisco where many live in either low-income housing or on the streets. Students will be engaging and showing the love of Christ with these people, and will be equipped on how to share their faith when they return home.

Cost: $950 ($250 depost) 

Wait List


Small Groups

Small Groups are the primary way that high school students can get plugged into the High School Ministry. Every 9th–12th Grader is invited to join a small group where they will be with students of the same grade. They meet Wednesdays from 7:30–8:45 pm and are facilitated by adult leaders. During their small group time, they will hang out, study Scripture and learn how it applies to a high school student. To learn more about High School Small Groups or how to get plugged into the High School Ministry, email Michael Atwell.

Sunday Mornings

Every Sunday at 9:30 am, we are in the Bell Center for Sunday School! We start out with a joint worship time with the Middle School Ministry and then we break out into small groups by grade. We have an awesome band, great donuts and a fun time learning about God’s plan for us. Contact Michael Atwell for details.
