Welcome to the The Hills Student Ministries News and Happenings page!
Stay tuned here to be alerted to any upcoming events and even some highlights from past events on occasion.
Please join us on Friday night from 7p-9p for our youth group gatherings. We will be hanging out, playing games, and engaging in discussion centered around the Bible. We're currently working through a study of some of the Old and New Testament testimonies of historical figures - some of which seemed to show great faith and integrity and some of which we are able to learn from their failures.
Be sure to follow us on our Facebook (Dix Hills EFC Youth [Official]) and Instagram account (thehillsyg) for updates, events and cancellations in the future!
