Highlands Youth to Move to New Day!

For as long as we can remember, our regular Youth meetings have always been on Sunday. To quote Ecclesiastes 3:1, "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens." Now is a time for change. To remove some obstacles that make it difficult for some of our youth attend, we are moving our meetings to Wednesday nights. Youth meetings will start at 5:30 PM and end at 7 PM. However, youth may also choose to stick around for the Community Campfire that starts at 7 PM and ends around 8:30 PM.

This decision to move our meetings to Wednesday comes after careful consideration and prayer. We believe that more youth will be able to attend and that this opens the door for families and the Church as a whole to come together. We think this will be great, and most people we have told about this decision are excited. We all know that change can be difficult and requires some adjustment. Please keep this decision and our group in your thoughts and prayers. We know that God is going to do some great things for this group!!

Upcoming Stuff


6th through 12 graders


Highlands Youth is a group of 6th-12th graders who meet every Sunday from 4PM-6PM for a time of fun and fellowship. The location is usually at Highlands UMC and activities will vary depending on the meeting. They will often include the following: games, bible study, service projects, field trips, and more games. Special activities like Concerts, Mission Trips and Retreats are scheduled throughout the year so it is best to check the youth ministry calendar for upcoming events! Whenever we are doing something outside the church, we will still meet in the youth room and then bus to our location.


To develop a deeper relationship with God by serving Him, being a witness, studying His word, and through the fun and fellowship we have together
