Serve With Us
High School students are invited to volunteer on Wednesday evenings with 5th-6th Grade Ministry programming, and Middle School students are invited to volunteer with Elementary programming on Wednesday afternoons. All students are welcome to volunteer on Sunday mornings with Kids Ministry.
Through Confirmation, our church family provides our incoming 7th-grade students with the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the Christian faith, to reflect on what they personally believe about God, and to discover more of what it means to participate in this church family.
Middle School FAQ

Confirmation encourages our students to own and articulate their faith in Christ and to become covenant partners of Highland Park Pres. The Confirmation program can be captured under three headings: 1) The Faith, 2) My Faith, and 3) Our Faith.
The Faith: We will teach students the faith “once and for all handed down to the saints” (Jude 1:3). Through the Confirmation gatherings, our students will gain an understanding of the great story of God’s redemption that spans from creation to recreation.
My Faith: We will give students the opportunity to own and verbalize their personal faith in Christ through studying and memorizing Scripture, memorizing the Apostles’ Creed, writing their faith statement, meeting regularly with their mentor, and discussing their faith statement and vows with an HPPC staff leader.
Our Faith: We will give students the opportunity to experience Christ-centered community by actively participating in the Student Ministry of Highland Park Presbyterian Church. This will be lived out through small group Bible studies, serving opportunities, and retreats. We want our students to get a sense of what it means to be a lifelong disciple of Jesus as a member of a particular body of Christ.
