Enough: A Study of Colossians
Paul's Letter to the Colossians exalts Christ in his relation to God, the creation, and the church. It helps us to make Christ our life (3:4). Through him we are able to find fullness of life, to destroy sin and put on holiness, and to live in better relationships. Colossians shows us that Jesus is enough, he is all we need.
A Mom’s Guide to Lies Girls Believe
The world is sending lies to your daughter that will affect her faith and sense of true identity. Gilda Shelby will lead this 8-week small group study that will equip moms of girls ages 8–13 to counter these lies before they take hold and instead arm their daughter with God’s truth. Moms will come together to discuss and learn, then put into action at home what is discussed each week.
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.
