Youth @ Highland Park is all about building a growing relationship with each other and with a living God. Sunday School is held on Sunday mornings at 9:30AM in the Library. Typically, Sunday School is led by our Associate Pastor, Rev. Masyn Evans-Clements. If you have a youth-aged child, grades 6-12, and you would like them to get involved with our youth group, send an e-mail to Masyn at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call or text her at (432) 288-5823.
- Discipleship Now: D-Now is a weekend-long event for our students ages 6th-12th grade. Students will make friends, play games/do fun activities, and experience spiritual formation over the course of this 2 day event. This year, it will be held April 21-23, 2023 and we are doing it jointly with First Austin. Learn more here.
- Lock-Ins: All-night snacking, movie-watching, sardines-playing, seldom-sleeping delirium is the only way to describe our overnighters where the youth find themselves locked in the church for 12 hours of fun.
- Youth Camp: the annual Summer Camp for all youth, grades 6-12. A day at camp includes morning activities and devotions, Bible studies, swimming, movie-making, missions, games, worship, evening fellowships, and a nap (if you’re lucky). This year, summer camp is taking place June 11-16, 2023. Learn more here.
- Mission Trip: We take the church bus and trailer and hit the road. Our work involves serving others and serving one another and lots of room to grow our faith and put it to work. We often end our trip doing something really fun together. More info coming soon.
