Middle School

At Hillcrest, Middle School youth can experience God's love in real and relevant ways through Sunday morning student services at the Student Center as well as a variety of activities throughout the week. Each student has opportunities to connect with each other and learn more about their faith. 

Who and What to Expect

You can expect to meet kids from different schools and areas. You'll see students in jeans, shorts, dresses and sweatshirts. Come as you are! You'll meet our Youth Pastor and some great interns. Our hope is that you'll relax into a morning of worship songs, a biblical sermon, and learning more about God. 

Youth Waiver 2017-2018

Sunday Morning

At 10:45 AM, MS 6th to 8th join us for worship, small groups in the Student Center.

At 9 AM, middle school youth are encouraged to attend the service in the sanctuary or serve in a ministry at Hillcrest. 

Series: Propel (August 20 – September 17, 2017)

Series Description: How do we know we're moving forward in our faith? And what are the things that help us get there? The good news is that, like any good Father, God wants us to grow. He wants to see us move forward. So, He doesn’t make it complicated. In fact, as we look at four things God uses to propel our faith, we may find that growing up spiritually can be simpler than we ever imagined.

Chat Rooms (September 24 – October 15)

Series Description: Chat Rooms are small “teaching labs” built around the idea that HCYM students love to talk about life and be challenged in their faith. We will be offering four or five different chat rooms every week on a variety of topics specific to the “phase” in life they are in as a teenager.

Series: If/Then? (October 22 – November 5)

Series Description: How do you normally introduce yourself? Maybe you start with, “Hi. I’m (insert your name here).” But what comes after that? Sure, you can talk about where you go to school, or what hobbies you’re into, but that doesn’t really introduce anyone to you, just facts about you. When Jesus talked about Himself, He would make statements like, “I am the Good Shepherd” and, “I am the bread of life.” As strange as they sound, these statements give us a better picture of who Jesus is. Because if He is a shepherd, then we are His sheep. And if He is the bread of life, then we can be satisfied in Him. In this series, we’ll discover that the way Jesus described Himself, gives us a clue into who we are as well.
