Teens: The RISING
The Rising is designed to be a refuge for students from all over the city. HYG opens its doors at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays during the school year for food and fun. The Rising is not offered during the summer because of the many mission trips, outreach opportunities, and group activities. Students can eat, play video games or sports, and hang out with friends and mentors. We gather together from 7:00-7:45 p.m. for exciting worship and a lesson designed to encourage and challenge. We want The Rising to be a time when students are empowered and equipped to make God the focal point of their lives. And we want it to be fun!
During the school year, our Nursery-6th graders have both small group and large group activities each week. They are involved in age-appropriate games, skits, and devotionals that help them understand God’s teachings. During the summer, they meet as a large group for active learning. Running shoes and comfortable clothes are a must for this age group! Group-led games include relays and other high action activities. Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man… That is our goal for this group. We work their minds and bodies, and we provide settings for them to build close relationships that will continue throughout their adolescent years.
