Welcome to the Heights Christian Youth Group page. As a parent or youth, you have received a card with this web page address or scanned the QR Code to bring you to this page.

One important reminder for parents: Parents are always welcome to any activity, youth group or event their child is participating in (no advanced notice required...except when traveling so we have enough room in the vehicles)!
Youth Worship Team Practice!
We are forming a worship team for our youth...made up of our youth! We are hoping to practice for worship every Thursday after school. If your youth is interested in singing with the worship band, simply have them show up after school on Thursday for practice. We do ask for consistency so that we can give our youth worship team the best chance for success! Practices will last until about 5pm.
How Our Youth Group is Set Up
Our Youth Group is set up a little different than most. We believe that God has called your youth to grow in their relationship with Christ. Therefore, we spend our time holding each other accountable to our relationship with Christ. This includes messages based within the disciplines we wish to see built up in every Christian teenager.
Every week, we are asking our youth how they are doing in six areas of Christian discipline: Prayer, Bible Reading, Fellowship, Outreach/Service, Discipleship & Giving.
We are currently in a series called "Working on Me". It is aimed at the practical issues that our Christian youth face and how acting out our faith stands as a witness to Christ to the world around us.
We encourage you to have your youth commit to be here each week so they might get the most out of these learning opportunities.
I (Pastor Jeremy) am meeting with parents after church on Sundays at 1:30pm to help families create a discipleship plan for their children. Many parents know that it is important to disciple their children (Deut. 6:4-9). However, many parents don't know where to start or where their children should be in their faith development. During these sessions, we talk about where your children are, where they should be and how to get them to a place where they will be growing in their faith.
