Student Ministry

Welcome to Hillcrest Student Ministry! Our goal is to create a welcoming, energized environment where students 7th – 12th grade in the community can come to develop a strong foundation grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. With weekly worship and Bible study, great small groups, summer camps and mission trips, and other fun and gospel-centered activities, you’ll find your place here with the students at Hillcrest. Join us each Wednesday night @ 6:00 and Sunday morning @ 9:15 in the youth room!

Hillcrest Students (7-12), Hillcrest Kids (K-4), and Ministry 56 are planning a Back-to-School OMC Bash! Wednesday night, September 22, @ 6:00 we are going to have a huge game of OMC on the front lawn of the church! We’re looking forward to a fun, messy night as we create some excitement to start off the new school year!


This Fall in Hillcrest Student Ministry, we will be studying the book of Ephesians in a series titled, “Being a Christian.” We will look at how the Gospel influences every aspect of our lives, and students will be challenged to live out their Christian faith this year with a better understanding of what it means to be a Christian. Come join us this Fall as we study through Ephesians and look at what it means to be a Christian!


Our combined student worship service with First Baptist is coming up in just a few weeks! Join us in the youth room at Hillcrest on October 13, 2021 for a great night of worship led by Blue Mountain College’s EXALT!
