Student Ministry

Join us!

The mission for the Youth Ministry at Hyde Park Community is to provide a safe, welcoming place where young people can experience God in amazing ways. Every person matters in God’s plan for this world and we hope to lead and empower the next generation of church leaders and Jesus followers. We are on a journey to love God and love others.

The Youth Ministry at Hyde Park Community seeks to partner with parents to help youth develop in all aspects of life while preparing for college and careers. Youth are given opportunities to explore their gifts and talents through worship, discipleship, and leadership while focusing on becoming life-long disciples of Jesus.

We’d love to talk with you more about the Youth Ministry and find ways for you to connect. And, by the way, our staff and adult leaders are bilingual, we speak both parent and teenager!

Contact Pastor Kate Smith at with any questions and to get connected.

Upcoming Series: Rebel Jesus

January 28, February 4, and February 11

Luke, Han, and Leia weren’t the original Rebel Force – Jesus was! In January and February we are taking a long look at Jesus to see who he really was, what he really was about, and what it really means to follow him. The reality is, Jesus was a rebel. He was a revolutionary. He turned the whole world upside down.
