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: “Expectations”

In Philippians 1:20, Paul proclaims,

“As it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death.

Join us, as we recognize a realistic and biblical view of ourselves!

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
