Bible Class — Sunday Mornings at 9:45AM
Revolution — Sunday Nights at 6:30PM (beginning Sunday, August 27th)
Small Groups — Sept. 6th, 2017 – April 25th, 2018 — Small groups are a way for students to get to know each other better. It’s a way for adult staff to build strong relationships with students. It can be a stepping stone to accountability and mentor relationships. Another benefit is that it can be an environment in which individuals can be heard, an arena where students can interact with and learn from others who might be going through similar struggles or situations. Each group meets once a week during the school year (typically on a Wednesday night, but schedules vary depending on each individual small group). We have both co-ed and and non-co-ed groups. Contact Pastor Brant at 402-643-2316 to get plugged in with a small group! New students are welcome to join at any time during the school year.
Bible Class — Sunday Mornings at 9:45AM
Inside Out — Wednesday Nights at 6:30-8PM (beginning August 23rd)
Over the past 21 years of working with middle and high school students I’ve learned one of the more challenging events is the transition from middle school to high school. Your teen needs connection. They need it with you. They need it with Jesus. They need relationship with others of all ages to learn, grow and develop life-shaping friendships.
The Hillcrest student ministry is asking you to help us by saving or making “room” in your weekly calendar for your son or daughter to be involved with caring adult volunteers who desire to create a healthy connection and friendship.
What does Hillcrest offer for teens? Allow me to share with you a brief summary of opportunities for your teen to plug in:
Bible Class: is a teaching environment, one for Jr. high and one for Sr. high) where students explore their relationship with Jesus and how that can influence every decision they make. (Sunday morning from 9:45-10:45 AM)
Revolution: is a Sr. high weekly event where the goal is to create environments where students are encouraged to make wise choices, positively influence their friends, and experience personal ministry through serving others. Students can also be part of our worship team which provides music each week. (Sunday night 6:30-8:30 PM)
InsideOut: is our Jr. high gathering where students encounter a musical worship experience—complete with a live band, inspirational speakers, and heartfelt small group discussions. (Wednesday nights 6:30 – 8:00 PM)
Small Groups: Is a way for students to get to know each other better. It’s a way for adult staff to build strong relationships with students. It can be a stepping stone to accountability and mentor relationships. Another benefit is that it can be an environment in which individuals can be heard, an arena where students can interact with and learn from others who might be going through similar struggles or situations. (Sr. high – most meet on Wednesday nights)
Mission Trip: Each June we take a team of Sr. high students to New Orleans to help with a ministry-partner called Urban Impact. This trip exposes students to a different culture, gives opportunity to develop character, leadership skills and helps to fight an entitlement mentality. (Sr. high – Each June)
Retreats: are various weekend events designed to build community, challenge spiritual growth and equip students to share the gospel. This year we feature the Jr. High Retreat at Timberlake Camp (Sept. 23-25, 2016) and Dare 2 Share (Feb. 17-19, 2017).
Worship Team: This is a chance for Jr. and Sr. high students to use and develop their skills to serve their peers each week. Under capable volunteer leaders these worship teams practice and lead their peers in musical worship.
Project Serve: Throughout the year students have the opportunity to give back others. It includes things like the Karol Kay park project, Trunk or Treat on Halloween, Painting the youth rooms, and more.
Fundraising: We offer two to three fundraisers per school year as needed to help defray the travel costs associated with our retreats/mission trips. Each family is responsible to pay a specified deposit to register and demonstrate commitment to the event of interest. Each student can earn scholarship assistance by a combination of working the fundraising events and attendance to Bible Class, InsideOut (Jr. High) OR Revolution (Sr. High). All funds raised by your son or daughter go into a large pool of money which is distributed with guidance of our Youth Financial Team.
