Empowered by God’s love and the Holy Spirit, the Houghton Wesleyan Church Youth Group exists to draw teenagers into a life-long, transforming relationship with Jesus Christ and his followers by:
  • Exalting God joyfully,
  • Knowing God intimately,
  • Serving one another wholeheartedly,
  • Sharing Christ’s love locally and globally

At HWC we believe that our students are not the future of the church, rather, they ARE the church… each individual is a critically necessary component of what God has called Houghton Wesleyan Church to do and be in this time and place.


 For High School Ministries (HSM), grades 9-12, and Middle School Ministries (MSM) 7-8th grades, LifeGroups are a safe place where you can feel accepted and cared for…a place where you will find meaningful relationships with other Christians…a place to talk about life, to get help and advice, a place where the Bible is taught each week, and where you will be encouraged to grow in your relationship to Jesus. You should know, however, that growth, intimacy, transparency and forgiveness are not always comfortable. It can be a challenge to live in true community. Let’s push ourselves. Let’s learn to invest in one another. Let’s learn to do life together! Sundays at 6 PM at the church.

Tuesday morning Prayer Breakfast

  • In this early morning moment, we eat pancakes and sausage, sing hymns, and spend some time in prayer before our Creator.
  • We gather in the community room at 7:00am

Sunday School

On Sunday mornings 7th – 12th graders meet to hear and discuss God’s word.  In all of our get-togethers we seek to answer the question, “How does what I am learning about the Bible actually get lived out in my daily life?”

Youth Sunday School meets In the Youth room at 9:40 AM on Sunday mornings.


Youth Events

In addition to weekly gatherings there are several events interspersed throughout the year.  These events can be outreach oriented, service oriented, or even designed to foster fellowship.  Whatever their purpose, they are always FUN!!  Movie nights, conferences, district winter retreat, 30 Hour Famine, and missions trips are just some of the ways that we spend time together.
