HSM (High School Ministry: 9-12)

At every baptism we hear Jesus say, “Let your light shine before others that they see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).” HSM (High School Ministry) is designed to help young people in 9th – 12th grades figure out ways to live out their faith in daily life while letting God’s love shine through them into the world.
