At Highlands Church, we are devoted to seeing a generation of students who are connected in a life-giving relationship with Jesus, and planted and thriving in the local church. Our desire is to lead students through the same process we are all going through here at Highlands…being pastored in small groups, trained through the Growth Track, and empowered to live out our purpose through the Dream Team of our church. If you have questions or would like more information on Highlands Students and what's happening, please feel free to send us an email.
In times of need and times of fun, Highlands Students small groups are your source of friendship and support. They are your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues. Student small groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord. Groups meet once a week in homes, restaurants, or other locations throughout the city. The groups change and begin again three times a year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. Sign-ups are available during our Rally Days at the beginning of each semester as well as through the website. Students never fully experience all that Highlands Church has to offer until they connect in a small group!

Summit Night is a worship experience for students that happens the second Sunday night of each month from 6-8PM! Designed to help students connect with God and with each other, each month you will experience a different Summit Night theme that will encourage you in your walk with Jesus. From the games, to worship, to the message, and beyond, you will experience a fun, welcoming environment that is both inspiring and encouraging.
This night is designed especially to connect students who are new to a relationship with Jesus or checking out Highlands for the first time. Everyone will leave equipped and empowered to walk out their “next step” in their journey with Christ! Also, feel free to invite as many friends as you like, you do not need to be a member of Church of the Highlands to attend!
