haywire weekly schedule

sundays 9:00am

HAYWIRE Sundays is your opportunity to begin making some relational connections with others through our Small Groups. You’ll have a chance to hang out with kids your age, sing along to some great music, have fun competing against other Small Groups for prizes, and learn a lot about how to make a connection between God, the Bible, and your real life! Come get to know some other middle school kids and learn to live your life with purpose.

wednesdays 6:30pm

At HAYWIRE Wednesdays you’ll be able to come and enjoy a variety of ways to express yourself through games and discussions, as well as learning about the life of Jesus. We meet in the Student Center just inside the middle entrance. We aren’t just sitting around, so make sure you wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Looking forward to seeing you and meeting your friends.


Summer Camp June 2019


We are again looking forward to another great summer camp trip. This year it will be June 2-6. Registration is open, but it closes on April 1st. 😮

We ran into some scheduling issues with the Big Chill and Spring Break being so close together and it really messed up the timing of advertising for Summer Camp. Coupled with the fact the camp is now using a 60 day cancellation notice (instead of the previous 30 day notice) we have a VERY short amount of time to get kids registered before we have to drop any extra spots. With a small $50 deposit we’ll hold your kid a spot for camp. It’s open for students currently in 6-8 grade.

Again, THIS DEPOSIT DEADLINE is APRIL 1ST (this is no joke)!

We will be attending Camp at Windermere Conference Center on Lake of the Ozarks, MO. It’s an amazing and beautiful camp setting with modern cabin, air conditioning, and private restrooms. The camp is hosted by Christ In Youth (CIY) and they do an amazing job communicating God’s Word and challenging our students to be Kingdom Workers.

The cost for camp ($400) includes transportation, housing, food (except those meals we eat on the road), recreation options (archery tag, ropes course, water park, and boating/tubing) and a field trip to HaHa Tonkas famous cold spring natural water slide!


the big chill – march 8-10, 2019

We truly had a blast with you at the Big Chill! We’ll continue to share photos on our social media  for you to tag and download.

If you loved The Big Chill you should consider coming to camp with us. It’s an amazing place and atmosphere for your continued growth in Christ! Check out the details above 👆 👆 👆 

Hope@Home and Student Pastor
Shane Friesen


Shane, who has been working with students at Hope since 1995, has long had a passion to see young people begin to make an impact on their world and culture. He likes to help kids cultivate their gifts, engage the culture, and leave some Jesus behind because of the way they lived their lives. Having 5 kids of his own, Shane also has a passion for seeing families become the primary discipling influence of their own children. He enjoys helping equip adults on how to raise kids who love Jesus in a culture that is constantly changing. You’ll also find him tinkering with the our App, this website, and Hope’s Hope@Home ministry which helps equip our homes to become the primary place discipleship takes place.


Interested in becoming a part of our team to students? Please fill out our Next Gen Volunteer Form to get started today. Someone from our ministry staff will call you within a couple of business days and set up an appointment to meet in person.

We value our kids and students along with their safety. We’d love to have you, Lord willing, find a place to serve alongside us to draw them closer to Jesus.
