Highland Students:
Middle School

Students in our Middle School Ministry can connect with one another, with their leaders, and most importantly with Christ. We do this through fun hangouts and outings, Bible studies, our confirmation class, retreats, service projects, and a yearly summer mission trip! If you have questions about Middle School Ministry please contact Hope Heathcott.

Confirmation encourages our students to own and articulate their faith in Christ and to become covenant partners of HPPC. 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 Scriptures, 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 for what it means to be a lifelong disciple of Jesus as a member of a particular body of Christ.
