Hi-League (Grades 9-12)

Going deeper in our faith so that it shapes lives of meaning and purpose.

Update on In-Person Activities

Due to Covid-19, all in-person gatherings have been postponed. Please contact the Director of Youth Ministry, Geoff Arenson at 612.767.2212 or by email with questions.

Growing in Your Faith

Our youth are not the future of the church; they are the church now! There is no better time or place to instill a sense of Christian purpose, and no time when our youth need more support in navigating the transition to adulthood, than in high school. For this reason, our Hi-League groups offers significant opportunities to grow socially and spiritually in a safe and supportive environment. Our weekly events are held at both campuses and include fun social events, educational nights, service opportunities, and retreats. Our weekly meetings are places of deep learning, sharing, and lots of fun, and they end each night with devotions led by the Youth Staff. You do not need to sign up for events, you can simply show up. Bring your friends – everyone is welcome!
