Central HSM

Central HSM (High School Ministry) seeks to create relational environments where students can develop a faith founded on the truth of Scripture, enabling them to interact with the world through our church’s vision.

Current Series: “Yokeless”

In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus proclaims,

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Starting Wednesday, September 14th, at Chapel Ridge, we will begin a 6-week study on the freedom we receive as followers of Jesus by looking into the lives of those who first followed Him!

Jesus is the Center of Everything We Do

Worship

Each Wednesday night at Chapel Ridge, starting at 6:30, our student-led leadership team begins the night by leading the high school in praise and worship.

“God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” – Jesus

Connect

After the message, students separate into groups based on grade and gender with small group leaders. This setting creates a comfortable environment for meaningful discussion and questions.

“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” – Jesus

Reach

Wednesday night is a blast for students, but the fun goes far beyond midweek! We offer many opportunities for students to serve at church or in our community.

Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” – Jesus
