Stay Connected This Summer By Joining a HCY SUMMER SMALL GROUP! 

What's a HCY Summer Small Group?

Summer Small Groups focus on 3 things...

1. Discipleship:
 Grow in your faith together.
2. Connection: Enjoy time in community with other students. 
3. Fun! Get outta the house and do fun things together! 

Groups may choose to meet at a local park, play ultimate frisbee & do a devotional together by the river. OR, meet at a local coffee shop and work through a study...the ideas are endless! 

HCY Summer Small Groups will meet approximately 2 times a month during the summer based on what times/dates work for the group.
Groups will be led by our awesome HCY leaders & Rachel! 

If there's enough interest, there will be an in-person, Sunday morning option for our 6-8th graders that would meet during the Sermon time of Sunday morning service approx. twice a month.If interested, please indicate on your sign up.


Sign up here by May 29th to get connected!

    Zahasky's Backyard (Address given with sign up) 

    Let's welcome the incoming 6th graders AND their families with a HCY middle school bonfire at the Zahasky house!!

    The purpose of this event is for our current 5th graders to meet Rachel and the other middle school students in an informal/fun setting, while allowing parents time to connect and ask questions. The middle schoolers will enjoy games and a bonfire in the backyard while parents and younger siblings will enjoy time to connect in the front yard. 

    HCK staff will be on hand to help introduce 5th graders to the HCY crew as well as provide supervision and fun (chalk, bubbles, games, etc, and a trip to the park down the block) for any younger siblings. The evening will end with some time for parents and students to gather together to hear from Rachel and ask any questions about upcoming summer events. You won't want to miss this great transition event!

    Note: This event is for all incoming 6th-8th graders and their families.
