The student ministry of Heartland Community Church seeks, by God's grace, to help our students grow up in their relationship with Christ and to live as commissioned disciples who spread the good news of the gospel to those around us in word and deed.
WHAT IS A TYPICAL NIGHT AT YOUTH GROUP LIKE?
Heartland students (6-12th grades) gather together on Wednesday nights at 7PM. Our time consists of a game or ice breaker, worship, and conversational teaching. Every other week, the students break up in small groups based on age and gender for teaching, discussion and prayer.
ARE JR. HIGH AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TOGETHER?
The short answer is yes. All of our students begin the time together, then break out into separate groups on a bi-weekly basis.
ARE THERE SPECIAL EVENTS OR CAMPS?
Yes! Our Student pastor and volunteers meet multiple times per year to plan events for our students including laser tag, bowling, and even service projects with one of our ministry partners. Every summer our High School students travel to Omaha, Nebraska to work alongside our ministry partner on the Winnebago Indian reservation. At Heartland our aim is to help our students embody our mission statement in a way that is fun and promotes great relationships along the way.
WHO LEADS STUDENT MINISTRIES?
Our Assistant Pastor, Gary Goodrich, currently leads the overall vision and direction of the student ministry. We also have a great group of adult leaders who lead the youth in conjuction with Gary and our other elders.
HOW DO I VOLUNTEER WITH STUDENT MINISTRIES?
Volunteers are always welcome and encouraged to participate in Student Ministries! We do require that all volunteers be members of the church and have thorough background checks. To learn more about volunteering with Student Ministries, contact Gary Goodrich Gary@heartlandpca.org.
