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: “Transformed”

In Jeremiah 17:7-8, Jeremiah proclaims,

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.

Join us, as we look into the truth of what it means to be changed by God!

Jesus is the Center of Everything We Do


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


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


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
