We are Alien Youth, Hillside Chapel's student ministry for 6th-12th grade students. We're all about encountering Jesus, engaging our faith, and being extreme for Him! The Bible is full of stories of people whose lives were changed by their encounter with Jesus (Like 5:17-26; John 8:1-11; Luke 8:49-56). One thing is certain; an encounter with Jesus is life changing (2 Timothy 5:17). And as Jesus' followers, we're called to continually grow in our relationship with God, and to help others do likewise (Colossians 2:6-7). It's one thing to say you believe in God but do you engage your relationship with Him (James 2:14-19)? We're also called to be extreme for Him and spread the Good News of Jesus in our social circles (Matthew 28:18-20). Jesus told us that we're not of this world (John 17:16). We're called to be different (Romans 12:1-2) because we are citizens of heaven (Philippians 3:20-21). 


ENLIGHTEN: SUNDAY MORNINGS 9:00-10:15AM/LIFE CENTER, ROOM L6/L7



4/28, 5/5, 5/19, 5/26: The Little Guys

We will look at the shortest books in the New Testament. Though they are small, they pack a big punch.


On Sunday mornings we enjoy fellowship with breakfast and Bible study. We will learn about Old Testament history. Most believers understand Jesus and the New Testament better than they do the Old Testament, but you will experience Jesus more fully with a better understanding of the Old Testament.


ENCOUNTER: WEDNESDAY NIGHTS 6:30-8PM/LIFE CENTER


5/1, 5/15, 5/22, 5/29: What Would Jesus Text

The goal of this teaching series is to talk about the online world and technology by asking the question, "What would Jesus do with all of this?"



"ENCOUNTER JESUS"


We start our Encounter nights with a time of fellowship and a fun game and then transition into an exciting time of worship and instruction from the Bible designed to bring you into the presence of Jesus. You can show up as early as 5:30 p.m. to hang out in the game room.


ENGAGE GROUPS: SUNDAY NIGHTS 6:00-7:30PM/LIFE CENTER, ROOM L6/L7


4/28, 5/5, 5/19: Anxious

We'll explore the topic of anxiety so that you can recognize what it is and isn't, how to deal with it and look at some Scriptures that address the issue.


"ENGAGE YOUR FAITH"


Engage small groups are a place where you can form relationships-with others and with God-so that you can Engage your faith. Every week the guys group and girls group have a time of fellowship and then discuss biblical passages and develop spiritual habits that will help you grow on your own.
