Helping High School Students Take the Next Step in Their Journey Toward Christ

Our desire is to offer a community that is open and accessible to all students no matter where they may be on the journey. Whether you’ve been here for a while or are brand new, we’re excited for you to join us!

Community Groups

Wednesdays, 7–8:45 PM

Community Groups (formerly known as Home Groups) are a space where students can laugh, connect, and have meaningful conversations about what matters most in life. Groups include time for both large group and small group connection. High School Community Groups are geographically based with the option to meet in-person either at a Blackhawk site or a site in Waunakee or Mount Horeb, or online.

Even if you’re unsure about Wednesday nights, filling out the sign up form is the best way to stay connected and up to date on all things HSM.

Asian American Student Ministry (AASM)

Fridays | 7:30-9:30 PM

AASM serves primarily Asian-American middle & high school students. It provides a culture-specific space where students can explore their identity through talking about common values and struggles with predominately Asian-American leaders. Anyone is welcome to be a part of AASM regardless of race or ethnicity, and no one is required to be part of it because of their race and ethnicity. Students may choose to do both AASM and Community Groups.

Serve & Thrive Team

Application opens late spring.

Serve and Thrive Team exists to equip, encourage, and empower students to grow in their faith by learning more about God through in-depth study of the Bible. In response, we follow the example of Jesus and the call of Scripture to serve others in our daily lives, individually and as a team.

Mentoring

We believe that everyone needs a mentor! Through mentoring, students connect one-to-one with a consistent adult mentor who is there as an encouragement, support, and listening ear. The time together each month can look different depending on what the student desires from mentoring and how they would like to spend their time together. That could include doing a fun activity, discussing a book, doing a Bible study, catching up on life, or a combination of these things!
