haywire weekly schedule

sundays 9am

wednesdays 6:30pm

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.

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. We just wrapped up an awesome school year. We’ll reboot in late August!

Pastor of Haywire Ministry:
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, Hope’s weekly newsletter, and posting occasional thought with 140 characters or less.
