At Oak Hill, we recognize that middle school and high school years are extremely formative in the life of most people. Teens are figuring out life: who they are and what they believe. They are figuring out how to relate to one another as well. If they don't learn how to find their identity in Jesus Christ and how to submit to the way he calls us to love others, they will find their identity in something far less valuable. We recognize that the family is the primary place where they should learn about God and his call on their lives, and we want to support each family in this important task by providing venues for them to reach toward God and other people.
Oak Hill's Students meet every Sunday during our Discipleship hour at 11 am for a time of teaching from God's word and every other Sunday at 4 pm for more time of relational discipleship. Additionally, we encourage each of our Gospel Communities to intentionally incorporate the teenagers in their group into their discussions and activities to truly experience the "family of families" that is the church. This continues to be an important step toward building a regular place for our students to grow at Oak Hill.
Throughout the school year, we also try to have regular connection events that provide a fun place for our youth to build friendships with one another and with caring adults in our church. Call or email for details about the next great event!
