We exist to expose students to God’s love, to connect them with other Christians,
to equip them to grow in their faith, to help them discover their ministry, and to exalt God with their life.
Middle School Ministry
At Cascade Hills Church, our student ministries are thriving. For your middle schooler, we provide two fantastic ways for them to get involved.
TheHills Middle School Night - Wednesdays
Every Wednesday from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM at the Cascade Hills Student Center, our middle school students come together for a high-energy youth service for all 6th – 8th graders. These services combine music, an inspiring word from the Bible, games, and much more. Pizza and drinks are available for purchase as well.
LIFEgroups - Every Weekend
On Saturdays & Sundays, we’ll come together for our middle school LIFEgroup. Our LIFEgroup is an interactive bible study designed to get students talking, discovering the truths in God’s word, and applying these truths in their personal lives. We’ll meet at the following times and locations.
- Saturdays at 5:00 PM – Room 312 (3rd Floor)
- Sundays at 9:30 AM – Room 313 (3rd Floor)
Our Current Series
Have you ever caught yourself following after something in life such as being the most popular in school, finding the perfect boyfriend or girlfriend, or maybe just being the person who is always known to be having fun? While each of those can be important to you, if we are not careful, we can end up chasing after things that really don’t matter the most. In this three-week series we will learn how important it is to Follow Jesus. We will learn that in order to Follow Jesus, we may have to change some of the things we are chasing in life. We will learn that following Jesus means having a relationship with Him, it starts with a step, and sharing Him with others.
believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”
1 Timothy 4:12

In the student ministry, we believe that the parent plays a vital role in their child’s spiritual growth just as much as their physical, and emotional development. But we also understand that the secular world is full of obstacles that might be counter-intuitive to these growth goals.
That’s why we’ve put together a few resources that we think will help. We want to keep parents informed on these issues as well as provide some guidance and talking points when discussing them with your middle schoolers.
• With our children getting older, it’s essential to teach them discernment. Still, following your pre-teens every move might be tiptoeing towards an overprotective extreme. Find out more with this article entitled: Should I Stalk My Kid?
• Learn how to talk to your child about some of the questionable content they might be exposed to via music & television with this article entitled: 4 Vital Questions to Ask Your Teen.
• As our children become more active outside the home, it’s easy to let distractions naturally create a divide between us. Don’t get disheartened; bridge the gap with this great article entitled: Two-Player Mode.
• Social Media is here to stay. The question is, how is it affecting our students? Check out this great podcast from Rethinking Youth Ministry entitled: The Effects of Social Media on Students.
Become A Contributor
We believe there is nothing more important than God’s work, even more so when it comes to our youth. So consider contributing to a cause that matters. God’s not looking for perfection; He’s looking for your heart. If you have a heart of gratitude for all that God has done for you and you want to serve him and express that gratitude, we want to give you the opportunity.
