CORE Student Ministries Events & Registrations

A Place for the Next Generation

CORE is a place for high school and middle school students to connect with one another, with older mentors, and with Jesus. Our desire is to help students become disciple-makers and to walk alongside both them and their parents in their faith journeys. We meet on Sundays at 10:30 AM, with high school students in the Core Cafe and middle school in the auditorium. On Wednesdays during the school year, we meet at 6:45 PM. Both Sunday and Wednesday meeting times have a blend of games, community, small and large group teaching, and discipleship.

Weekly Teaching & Resources

Weekly video teaching for Middle School and High School is offered every Wednesday and Sunday. Additional resources and family activities are also available. These videos are also available on our YouTube channel.


CORE Sundays

At this time CORE, will not be gathering physically in the building on Sundays. An encouragement video for families will be posted every Sunday on hfcinfo.com, CORE’s social media channels, as well as on YouTube. These will be no longer than 5 minutes and are meant to be a catalyst for families to engage God’s Word at a deeper level with their students. We also encourage you to check out our devotional guide that accompanies the weekly sermon.
