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


Camp Team: You made it! You are in!! Are you ready for some life changing fun!?! This summer we’ll be diving into the life of a man named Elijah. Check this out…

Elijah laid on a desert floor ready to give up. He had seen God do great things, but those felt like distant memories. Where was God when he was in danger? Where was God when he needed Him most? In the midst of those questions, Elijah was about to have a life-altering, history-changing encounter with the Creator of the Universe. He just had to stand up and continue walking toward a divine appointment with God.

Elijah was one of the greatest Kingdom workers in all of Scripture, but he also passed his faith along to other Kingdom workers so that they, too, could continue advancing the Kingdom.

In 2019, CIY MIX will invite you to dive into the life of Elijah and learn what it means to continue standing up for God in a world that denies Him, to continue pressing on when all seems lost and to continue the call from God that has been given to each of His children since the dawn of time.

Will you accept the call to continue Jesus’ command to point all people to Him?

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.
