Youth Ministry


DOXA | HIGHSCHOOL | 9TH – 12TH

All high school students are invited to join us in any of our weekly meeting times to study God’s Word and build relationships with one another.

MID WEEK YOUTH GROUP

When: 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:00 – 8:00 pm

SUNDAY MORNING EQUIPPING HOUR

When: Every Sunday morning at 9am

Location: Hickman Community Church in the Heritage Center [Room 103]

Book: The Gospel of John

Focus: The Gospel of John is foundational to any biblical worldview. It is simple in its presentation, yet profound in its understanding. The purpose of this book is that you would believe that Jesus really was who He claimed to be, the Son of God. Join us this Fall semester, as we journey through this book and discover life changing principles through the eyes of the Apostle John.

Lead by Joe Acosta, and Jeff Porter

IMPACT | JR HIGH | 7th – 8th

All Jr High students are invited to join us as we purpose to exalt God through the teaching of His Word. We desire to ground the students by learning sound doctrine, and our hope is to prepare them to stand for Christ in a secular culture.

MID WEEK YOUTH GROUP

Book: Revelation

Focus: This semester during our equipping hour, we will walk together through the book of Revelation. Just as the book of Genesis is a critical foundation stone to the Christian faith, the study and understanding of Revelation is just as critical. God not only informed us how the world began, but also He declared how it would end!

Lead by Bobby and Muffie Farinha

The purpose of the Sunday teaching service is:

  • To complement the corporate worship that occurs Sunday mornings at Hickman Community Church by providing opportunities for fellowship.
  • To offer an additional opportunity for equipping through teaching targeted at the youth through relevant illustrations and personal areas of application.
  • To engage teenagers with the priority of the gospel in all affairs of life as the means by which we can fully worship God.
The purpose of HCC Youth ministry is to assist parents in the evangelizing and discipling of their teenagers with the desired result of lives conformed to the image of Christ.
At Hickman Community Church, Youth ministry is a priority. While many in the world see young adults as a problem to be ignored, we believe that the direct opposite is true. Our intense focus on youth flows from the pages of God’s Word. God has always had a focus toward young people. David, Samuel, Samson, Daniel and Joseph are a few that come to mind.

It is during the teen years that we see the child emerging into an adult. These are the years of change in the areas of the physical, emotional, and spiritual make up of the young adult. It is during these years that lifelong impact can be made. It is during these years that youth are evaluating and testing all they have been taught. They are finding out what is real and what is false. They test the waters of all areas of life like never before.

God knows that youthful vigor in and of itself is of no value, and reminds youth of their need to submit to Him during these years and not to give their strength to another (Eccl. 11:7 – 12:8, Prov. 2).

The purpose of HCC Youth ministry is to assist parents in the evangelizing and discipling of their teenagers with the desired result of lives conformed to the image of Christ.

Youth ministry at HCC finds its overall purpose in seeking to glorify God by teaching the Word of God, and through the personal example of its leaders so that the young adults will know and seek the kind of life that pleases God the most.

“Whether you eat or drink do all to the glory of God.”1 Corinthians 10:31

The focus of the ministry is not on entertainment, but on the thinking of teenagers; not on programs, but on people; not on self and what I can get out of this ministry, but on God and what I can bring to this ministry. Youth ministries must not be seen as an island on its own. It is a vital part of the whole church. In fact, any youth ministry that will have lasting impact and growth must work with not only the youth, but also their parents. If there is no integration into the life of the church as a whole, then the youth ministry fails to be Biblical. The ministry to young adults includes a weekly outreach called Ascend and Sunday morning all age instruction groups, plus a monthly social event during the summer vacation time. The purpose for Ascend is outreach into the youth who would not otherwise attend church functions.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart….soul….mind.”Matthew 22:37
