CHeck out our summer calendar!
Teen Sunday School (grade 6-12)
In Sunday school, youth in junior and senior high are educated on biblical doctrine, on why they should believe the Word of God, and to choose right from wrong based on God's character. Our goal is to prepare youth to defend their faith in college and beyond. Contact Pastor Jarrod for the different topics/curriculum being used by each age group.
In addition to regular Wednesday night Generation180 programming, there are also special events about once a month. Hay rides, campfires, extreme games, and waterpark trips are just a few of the many special activities that take place with the teens. These special events are an excellent time to invite friends. Check for the most current youth activities schedule in each campus lobby for upcoming times and locations for special events.
Generation180 (Youth Group)
Generation180 is our Wednesday night Youth Group. Both junior and senior high students meet on the same days as the children's One Way Club schedule with the exception that Gen180 continues through the month of May.
(Gen180 usually meets at the Wausau Campus, but we do go off-site for special events).
This yearly summer event brings youth closer to nature through the use of creative devotionals and teaching. Our prayers are that youth will grow closer to God through the beauty He provides.
Youth Mission Trip
Generation180's yearly missions trip provides an opportunity for teens to serve others and experience what life is like for many less fortunate than most. In the past, these summer trips have been national and international in location. Contact Pastor Jarrod if you are interested in knowing more about this opportunity.
Building Blocks of faith
Building Blocks of Faith is a time of doctrinal study for students who have just completed grades 5-7. The class meets six times per summer. Students participating in three years of the study will have received a complete review of the doctrines on which Highland is founded. Sessions meet from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. and include both classroom and recreational time.
Fair Clean-up and Fair Gate Fundraiser
These fundraising activities are a GREAT way for youth and entire families to serve the community by helping out with different aspects of the WI Valley Fair while raising funds for youth events at the same time. Fair clean-up participants meet at the Marathon Park grandstands at 6:30 a.m. each day of the fair to have fun (yes it is possible to work and have fun) cleaning the grandstand area. Breakfast is then served back at the church for those participating. Smoothies anyone?
Each year the youth gather for local and camp servant projects. Whether an afternoon at an animal shelter, homeless shelter, or a weekend helping get a camp ready for the summer season, servant projects offer youth an opportunity to grow in their spiritual walk while providing practical hands-on help to other non-profit agencies.
