Our desire is that our high school students will increasingly grasp the fact that they can have a huge impact on their peers and in their community if they completely devote their lives to Jesus. We believe that our local High Schools are an incredible mission field that students are best situated to reach.
Students will be challenged by their peers and gently pushed by their small group leaders to keep moving towards Jesus. Over the 9th-12th grade years students will be given a variety of opportunities to step out of their comfort zones.
Our goal is for H.S. students to be blown away by how God meets them as they move closer and closer towards Him!
Sunday Morning 9:00-10:30 AM: We meet together in room # 238 upstairs during the 1st worship service. We have a roundtable group discussion about the same section of the Bible that is being taught during the sermon in the worship service. Then during the 2nd worship service we take over the front left section of the worship center. During the message we “talk” about parts of the message that have impacted us via social media. ALSO every 4th Sunday is Panera Day! We go offsite to a local Panera Bread and get to know each other better as we drink some coffee!
Wednesday Night 6:30-8:30 PM: We take over the 2nd floor of High Point for a mid-week meeting that we call, wait for it….“Wednesday Night!”. Wednesday Nights are packed with some time to hang out with friends, worship lead by our student worship team, a message relevant to your life as a student, and time to talk about life in a small group.
THE TEAM MUST GROW! Derick is praying for 6-10 additional leaders for next year. If you or someone you know would be a good fit for the team have them contact Derick today!
During the year we host a number of different special events designed to help us CONNECT with God & each other, to GROW in our faith, and to SERVE our city and world in a Christ like way.
Districts Youth Conference: The Districts Youth Conference is a chance to connect with other Christian students from around the Great Lakes Region, grow in your knowledge of Biblical truth and spiritual maturity, and equip yourself with the tools to serve Christ effectively. The weekend will feature large-group learning and sermons, focused breakout sessions, and focused small group times. We will also have the chance to enjoy time as a group. We will meet at High Point Church on Jan 6 at 4:30PM sharp and return on Jan 8 at 2PM.

SERVE NIGHTS: twice a semester we head out and serve the west side of Madison in place of a regular Wednesday Night.
FALL RETREAT: In late September or early October we head to Lake Waubesa Bible camp for an overnight fall retreat! Students spend time reflecting on what God is currently doing in their lives in between times of crazy fun!
WINTER RETREAT: In late January we head north to Camp Fairwood and spend a weekend having relentless fun! We also have several sessions throughout the weekend set aside to worship God and to learn more about Him from a guest speaker!
MISSIONS TRIPS: We take a trip to the Dominican Republic every summer! Upper middle school students are encouraged to apply (7th-8th grade). We also offer a trip within a 8 hour drive of Madison every summer for the mission trip greenhorns.
