High School Ministry – SUMMER 2022

Summer of Fun, Here We Come!

Our summer schedule is jam-packed with tons of opportunities for those in 9th-12th grade to live out our authentic faith together as disciples of Jesus Christ. As we come together to experience Christ and enjoy hanging out, we empower students to find their place in the church and make a difference in the world around them through service and outreach.

Everyone Is Welcome!

Will you be in 9th grade in the fall? We’d LOVE to have you joins us at absolutely anything and everything this summer as incoming freshmen make our summer so much better! So check out our schedule below and come make yourself at home with us – we even have a “Milestone” event planned just for freshmen on August 4!

2022 Graduating Seniors – please continue to join us for as many events as you are able this summer! We know that prepping financially for college may limit your attendance, but we’d love to stay connected as much as you are able. When you are ready to attend Young Adults Ministry, Mark Schaap is looking forward to having you!

HSM Sunday Nights| Room 208| 7 – 8:30 PM

Beginning on Sunday, June 12, we’ll be watching episodes of The Chosen in order to help the stories in the Gospels come alive! To end each night, a fellow high school student or adult leader will share a brief testimony of their own powerful encounters with Jesus, bringing the themes from The Chosen episode and the Gospel stories it portrays into our modern context.

Already a believer in Jesus? Join us to be encouraged in your faith. Take this opportunity to invite your friends to learn more about the One who has called you to follow him.

Not yet a believer in Jesus but are curious to see what Jesus is all about? Come and see; you are welcome here!

Dates: June 12, 26| July 10, 17, 31| August 7, 14, 21 (canceled)| August 28 – SPECIAL EVENT (Details to come)



HSM Sunday Night OVERTIME| 8:30-10 PM

We hope you’ll join us for “Overtime” hangout each Sunday once we wrap up our large group time. The goal of OT is simply to have a blast hanging out and enjoying some sort of activity together. OT is a great opportunity to connect with old friends and make new ones!

OT will most often be off-site and transportation will be provided for those who need a ride TO (but not back from) the hangout location. Pickup is 10 PM at the location specified each week. Addresses are provided in the weekly email and at the beginning of HSM each week.

Tuesdays with HSM

At High School Ministry, we take full advantage of summer break! In addition to HSM on Sunday evenings, we spend time together every Tuesday! The best part is that we alternate each week between hangouts full of the best summer vibes and meaningful service projects designed to help us live out our faith while making a difference right here in Grand Rapids. Check out the schedule below for the unique details of each Tuesday for the summer!

If you plan to serve with us at The Boys and Girls Club, volunteer forms will need to be completed. If you are under 18, complete this Minor Form. If you are over 18, please complete this Backround Check Form and then get them to Abby Nuenke.

HSM Milestone Events

At HSM, we believe in celebrating life’s unique milestones. That’s why, during the summers, we plan unique events with graduated experiences to celebrate YOU and what GOD is doing in your life right now. See below to find the even crafted just for you and other students in your grade!
