"They are not of the world, even as I am not of it." 

-John 17:16

Alien Youth, Hillside's student ministry, is for all students from 6th to 12th grade. Our goal is to offer a place for students to come together and learn they are not alone and that there is a God who not only loves them but also will always be there for them. Our team of adult volunteers love students, listen to them, and enjoy spending time with them. We want to encourage students to pursue a stronger relationship with God and learn to follow His plan for their lives.

Small Groups are a place where students can engage their faith and form relationships with God and with others. Times together include fun games, food, discussion, Bible study, and discipleship.

6-8th Graders meet Sundays @ 10:30 a.m. in the Life Center

8-12th Graders meet Sundays from 6:00-7:30 p.m. in the Life Center
