HSM RETURN to the campus

HSM ministry will return to campus on Sunday, July 5th at 7:00pm on the cafe patio!

We will be practicing physical distancing and wearing a face covering over your nose and mouth is required. If you don't have a face covering, one will be provided. Temperatures may be taken of those attending. If there is any type of illness in your family we ask that you remain at home to worship. The Center for Disease Control recommends that if you are a member of a high risk group (elderly, immunocompromised, etc.) you should avoid large gatherings.

Park in the rear Parking Structure and follow the signs to the Cafe/Middle School outdoor patio.

Making disciples who live and love like Jesus

Sundays
Church for high school students! High school students gather for worship at 7pm on Sundays at Calvary.   You can expect to hang out with friends, hear a message preached from the Bible and worship with our outstanding band! 

Every week people come for the first time and if you have never been, we are excited for you to come!  

If you want to check out one of our Sunday messages, but are unable to attend in person, we upload the message from each weekend to our podcast. The podcast can be found on Spotify following the link below or on iTunes by searching “Calvary HSM”.
 
COVID-19 update: We are meeting on campus on the cafe patio and virtually. Join us live at 7pm on Campus, Youtube, and Instagram. To register for on campus service please see above.

Small Groups

Small groups are where we teach people to follow Jesus step-by-step!

Small groups are where we teach high school students how to follow Jesus step-by-step.  We do this by gathering on Tuesday or Wednesday nights in gender-specific groups of 5-15 students.  Group time involves studying the Bible, sharing about your life and being challenged to take steps forward in your faith! 

For more information on small groups, email Brit Vargas at brit.vargas@calvarywestlake.org.

COVID-19 Update – Our small groups program is currently not in session and will resume in September. However, we are working on summer programing. We will update this page and our Instagram with information about what we have planned, and if you have any questions feel free to contact Tony Clark at tony.clark@calvarywestlake.org.

Events

Our events are a chance to engage the community and include Summer Bonfires, Friday Night Lights, Christmas Lock-In, Joy Unleashed, and more.

On Campus Ministry

We want students to not just engage with the church on Sundays, but to be actively involved in their school faith communities as well. A great way for students to do that is to attend their local Fellowship of Christian Athletes meeting. These meetings, called Huddles, occur on a regular basis on campus and are a great opportunity for students to connect with others who can help them grow in their faith. 

Parents: If you want to get involved in supporting your school’s FCA through prayer, providing food or logistical support, please email high school ministry on campus staff member J.D. Laske at jd.laske@calvarywestlake.org.

Baptism

Baptism is a celebration of your death to sin and new life in Jesus Christ!

Who Should Be Baptized?

In Scripture, the act of baptism quickly follows an individual’s decision to trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation (Acts 2:37-41; 8:35-39;10:47-48). After you have professed your faith in Jesus Christ for salvation, you are ready to obey Jesus’ command to be baptized and publicly identify yourself as a follower of Jesus Christ. We baptize high school students throughout the year in the Calvary adult services, in high school services and in the ocean at summer bonfires, and we love getting to celebrate with them! 

If you are interested in more information on baptism or if you want to get baptized, email high school director Tony Clark at tony.clark@calvarywestlake.org.

International Mission Trips

We encourage students to take their next step in applying for one of our HSM mission trips. We take trips each year to Mexico, Uganda, Ukraine, and the Dominican Republic, and believe that this is our opportunity to take the Great Commission seriously in taking the Gospel throughout this world. More information about our trips can be found here on our HSM Mission Trip page, and if you have any questions about our trips feel free to reach out to our administrative assistant Courtney Lopez at courtney.lopez@calvarywestlake.org.

Summer Camp

HSM Summer Camp is a week long camp open to any student in grades 9-12, and is designed to give students the best week of their summer. We run our own summer camp at Murrieta Hot Springs Christian Conference Center with a focus on recreation, worship, and teaching, and we use this platform to encourage students to take their next steps with Jesus. 
 
We received communication from Murrieta Hot Springs that they have cancelled all groups through August. So while we may look for alternative experiences for students to attend on campus or locally, HSM Summer Camp 2020 as we know it is officially cancelled this year. The best way to make sure you know the most recent updates is to join our email list.

Winter Camp

Every winter we have the opportunity to take students up to Hume Lake for winter camp, where we partake in a weekend of worship, recreation, and Biblical teaching. Winter camp is a perfect place to get away from normal life for a weekend, enjoy the beautiful campus of Hume lake, and even see snow if you’re lucky!
