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 6:30-8:30pm on-campus in the Junior High room. Meet our small group leaders on our HJH Volunteers page. Questions? Contact Jay at
