FAMILY EVENT: DIY Dares

  • No cost
  • Register today to claim a box for your family! One per household.
  • Box pick up will be at the church on Wednesday, Febr 16 from 6-9pm or Friday, Febr 18 at 6:00pm.
  • Families will do their box activities at home on Febr 18, then share pictures on social media.

DIY Dares is meant to be an at-home experience for families to spend time with each other. We intend for it to create an environment for parents and children to connect and have fun.

The HSM Team will put together different “boxes” filled with crafts, games, and other fun things for families to take home and do together. You can pick one of three box options: Make Something, Cook Something, or Try Something New.  The boxes will also include convo cards for you to talk through together. The whole point of the event is to create a space for parents to have an intentional time with their students to connect.

Baptism is an important moment in the lives of Christ-followers! Students will have the chance to get baptized at any of the Sunday morning worship services. In order to get baptized, high schoolers must complete the following three steps:

  1. Attend a 15-minute Explore Baptism Gathering. Parents are encouraged to join their student but it’s not required. Students only need to attend one session. Gatherings will be offered at the following times:

LATE NIGHT GAME NIGHT

  • Student Ministries Room
  • No Cost
  • No RSVP needed; just show up

We’ve all watched late-night talk shows and game shows where guests are asked to participate in outrageous challenges or games. But what if everyone could get in the game? That’s what this late-nighter is all about! We’re giving everyone a chance to be in the game, to be on the show, and to play the games we usually only get to see other people attempt.

Activities will range from mega-screen video games to hands-on challenges and competitions inspired by popular game shows and late-night shows. You definitely DON’T want to miss this.

Challenge is a national gathering of students designed to help teens grow in their personal relationship with Jesus. The conference is committed to helping plant and water the gospel among the next generation. The goal is for students to experience the joy of knowing Jesus and helping others do the same. This year Challenge will be held at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, Missouri.

Challenge blends aspects of a conference, a mission trip and camp to create a catalytic environment that moves beyond the mountaintop moment to building missional momentum within our teens.

* When registering you may either pay the full registration fee or a $150 deposit plus partial payments through June 26. Full registration fee must be paid by June 26.
