High School Ministry


In order to minimize the potential health impacts of COVID-19, Glenwood has suspended all church activites, including High School Ministry gatherings. Click here to read an update from Brandon Dickson.

The High School Ministry at Glenwood offers many opportunities for students to get connected to other students and leaders as well as grow in their relationship with God. Some of the key places we do this are Sunday morning worship services and equipping classes, Wednesday night Youth Group, summer mission trips, winter retreats and summer camps, and other fun events throughout the year. As we build deep relationships, we are committed to challenging, encouraging, and equipping each other to become like Jesus in every vital relationship by loving God, loving others, and influencing others to love God.

Key Info

Youth Group - During the school year, we meet on Wednesday nights at Glenwood to hang out, worship through music, pray, study God’s Word, and spend time together building relationships in small groups. We officially start at 7:00 and end at 8:30, but you can come at 6:15 or stay after to hang out and play games in the gym. 

Sunday Equipping - Most Sundays throughout the year, we have equipping classes for students aimed at helping them grow in their knowledge of God's Word as well as what it looks like to live it out in their everyday lives. We currently meet at 9:00am. These classes are not intended as a replacement for Sunday morning worship with our larger community. We would love to have students at both, but if you can only be here for one hour, we encourage you to join the worship service.
