What's High School Weekend All About?

main image

High School Weekend is a place for students to come once a month to be together, laugh together, and ask questions about life and God together. High schoolers from our community enter into the front doors of Eastern Hills and are greeted by music and lawn games set up in the lobby. After a short hangout time, they make their way to the youth room where they get to enjoy an amazing, home-cooked meal around circular tables that foster a sense of community. 

The rest of the night is filled with laughter as adult leaders dress up as characters and lead games, a time of fun and intimate worship, and a time of culturally relevant teaching from an adult who invests in the lives of the students. There are themes for each night, and each theme provides students to look forward to different elements of the night.

In a time when social media, brief interactions, and plenty of exterior stressors dominate the lives of our high school students, we are working hard to provide them with a space to come and experience the real and authentic relationships with each other and with Jesus. Students in our community have the opportunity to come hear about the hope and love only Jesus can offer.  They will also hear and experience stories of lives being changed through relationship with Jesus.  If you're in grades 9-12, come and check out our High School Weekend!
