Junior High


Our Junior High community of Highlands gathers, laughs, plays, encourages, and helps each other grow in the love and faithfulness to Christ and we want you to be a part of this awesome crew!

Student Connect

Thursdays 5:45-6:45pm | Sundays 8:30am-12:00pm

Students can come before service on Thursday nights and before, between, and after services on Sunday mornings to hang out in the Worship Center Café with friends, play games, and connect before going into the service together. We'll have a student section where they can sit with their small group, friends, and leaders and worship together in main service.

HJH WEdnesday Nights

Small groups for Junior High students meet on Wednesday nights at 6:30-8:00pm on-campus in the Junior High room. Meet our small group leaders on our HJH Volunteers page. Questions? Contact Jay at

HJH Summer Camp


Our Junior High students are headed to Glorietta, New Mexico for a fun week of hanging out with friends, lake activities, and going deeper in their faith. The camp theme this year is For All as we look at no matter who you are, no matter where you are from, and no matter how good or bad you think you are - the good news of Jesus is for you!
