High School Ministry

 To be and to grow a community of disciples of Jesus Christ.
High School Activities →
We’ve designed our high school ministries around our students' specific phase in life. We love high schoolers and we’d love to partner with your family in pursuing real-deal discipleship. Learn how we partner with families during each life phase, by downloading our age-specific phase plan for grades: Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, Twelfth. We recommend many Bibles resources for students to grow in the faith—find the resources available for purchase here.

Our Weekly High School Ministry (HSM) Program

HSM gathers weekly in pursuit of being and growing a community of disciples of Jesus. We hang out together, we check in on one another, we worship God and explore the Word together, pray together, and share a meal with each other. Throughout the school year, these weekly gatherings are UALC's main and plan path for high school community and discipleship. Sundays at Mill Run, from 4:00-6:00 pm. For more information contact Dan Kidd.

Growth Workshops – Know and Grow Your Faith

Growth Workshops are the fundamentals of following Jesus designed around a child's developmental phase of life.
Following Jesus in High School (9th grade)
Designed for incoming freshmen and their parents, this single session workshop facilitates great family discussions. We’ll prepare you to navigate life in high school and follow Jesus through opportunities and obstacles. Dan Kidd
"Can I Ask That?" (9th grade and older)
From the very beginning, faithful followers of God have embraced our curiosities. The Bible—written by thinking people for thinking people— abounds with big, difficult, important questions. Part of being a Christian in a community of Christians is exploring—fearlessly and earnestly—how our faith makes particular claims on every part of our lives: heart, soul, mind, and strength. This course will address the question and doubts our HSM students express. For more information or registration contact Dan Kidd.
Confirmation Capstone  (9th grade and older)
Delve deeper into the foundations of the Christian faith and learn practical ways to be a daily follower of Jesus. Parents and students attend the first session together while the rest are for students only. Students can do Capstone anytime during 9th-12th grades. UALC celebrates this important season where students begin the adult life of following Jesus. Before beginning the Confirmation Capstone, please plan to attend at least one UALC retreat or camp and one UALC mission trip. We provide scholarships so no one has to miss out on these amazing experiences. Dan Kidd.
My Bible Intermediate (post-confirmation)
The Bible is amazing and rich but also a little overwhelming. This workshop will help you learn how to read and interpret it on your own. Take your next step in understanding how the Bible is organized, what it shows us about God, and how it can deepen your relationship with him. Invest in these six sessions and you’ll have some skills for following Jesus that will last you a lifetime! Students attend on their own. Dan Kidd.
Following Jesus After Graduation (recent high school graduates)
Life after high school graduation is full of major transitions. We want you to be prepared to follow Jesus well in the season ahead, and for the rest of your life. Join other high school graduates to talk and pray through the major changes ahead. Take some time to consider these big changes immediately ahead of you as you enter college or the work force. Tuesday, August 11, 6:00-8:30 pm at Pastor David White's home. Register here. Dan Kidd.

HSM Mission Trips

Our mission trips provide an opportunity for students to explore the myriad of ways the Kingdom of God is being brought into communities near and far. These trips offer students a chance to observe God’s missions first-hand, act as servant leaders, and discover how the Lord will use them to impact the world around them. Contact: Dan Kidd.

Tae Kwon Do

We work on developing self-defense skills and provide regular exercise in an environment that honors Jesus Christ. At Lytham Road. More information. Contact:  Angie Edmonds.

What Do You Do?

We gather to be and grow a community of Jesus’ disciples. We do life together. We worship, explore, learn, hang, pray, and eat. We meet in small groups and big groups. We go places and do things with and for others in the name of the Lord.
The Gathering

Can I Come Anytime?

Of course! We'd love for you to come. And bring friends. If you've come before but it's been a while, not to worry. Just come back when you can.
