Sundays
 

Church for high school students! High school students gather for worship at 11am (Starting 11/1 on the HSM Patio) and 6pm (On the MSM Patio) 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! 
 
We are currently meeting outside, practicing social distancing, and wearing masks during service in order to comply with CDC guidelines. If you or someone in your household have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 we ask that you stay home and instead join us online either via Youtube or Instagram. 
Every week people come for the first time and if you have never been, we are excited for you to come! 

Small Groups

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 on our Calvary campus 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.

Events
 
 “Workspace” is a place where students can come do homework together in a safe, outdoor environment. Every Tuesday evening from 4-7 PM we will have a space set up for students to hang out with friends and work on homework, because after a full day of online classes we know they could use some (socially distanced) in person time! Workspace will run every Tuesday during the fall starting on September 8th. 

“Cinema Nights” – Popcorn, friends, and movies! We will be hosting movie nights on the first 4 Fridays in October on the Middle School Patio lawn at Calvary from 7:30-9:30pm. We are encouraging students to bring their own lawn chairs/blankets and invite their friends to join for an opportunity to watch a movie under the stars! Masks and social distancing will be required, and we do ask that students don’t bring their own snacks or drinks to these events. 

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.

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!

We are in communication with Hume Lake about Winter Camp 2021 and will let you know what their plan for camp is as the time gets closer – in the meantime pray with us that there will be a safe, healthy way for students to attend camp in January!

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.
