High School Ministry – SUMMER 2024

Summers with HSM

Calvary High School Ministry digs deep into community during summer break, spending most Sundays and every other Tuesday together. If you’re a high school student, (incoming freshmen, outgoing seniors, and everyone in between, we’re looking at you!) we’d love for you to be a part of our community as we enjoy incredible adventures, lots of laughs, and discover more about Jesus together.

Summer Sundays @ HSM

This summer at HSM, we are going to look at what it actually means to practice the way of Jesus. Each week we will hangout, worship, and go through a series of “practices” that Jesus modeled in his life. Building community is one of our strongest values at HSM, and one of the ways you will see this play out during the summer is through practice groups. Each week, students will break into groups to discuss the night’s topic, engage in that evening’s practice together, and plan how to put it into practice throughout the week.

Our “official” HSM service is from 6:30-7:30pm in 208, but we’d also like to invite you to come early for a casual hangout time outside on the patio (6:00-6:30pm) and then join us after HSM for Overtime Hangout from 7:30-9:30pm. You can read more about Overtime below.

Dates for Summer HSM: June 9, 23, 30 | July 14, 21, 28 | August 4, 11, 18, 25 (August 25 is an offsite bonfire to celebrate the end of the summer)

Overtime Hangouts

We hope you’ll join us for “Overtime” hangout each Sunday after HSM, where the goal is simply to have a blast building community through a variety of planned activities.

OT starts at 7:30pm and is most often off site, with transportation provided for those who need a ride TO (but not back from) the hangout location. Pickup is 9:30pm at the location specified each week, unless otherwise communicated. Addresses are provided in the weekly email and at the beginning of HSM each week.

Tuesday Hangs & Other Summer Events

The heart behind our Tuesday Hangs is to soak up all the summer vibes while making memories and building relational community together.
