Young people desire community. They join sports teams, clubs, and social networks and form friendships based on common interests. At Activate, we want students to be in community with one another based on the greatest of interests: knowing God and making Him known. Every Wednesday before Bible study, students meet in Community Groups from 6:15P.M. to 6:45 P.M. for the purpose of discipleship, fellowship, and accountability. Each group is gender-specific and is led by a college-aged counselor. These groups provide a great environment to develop and deepen godly friendships.

In order to take advantage of the free time that the summer season offers, the High School Community Groups will read through a book as a ministry! This summer, we are going to focus on the topic of biblical manhood and biblical womanhood—what does it mean to be a man or woman of God? We’re really excited about the reading and the topics, and they will produce a lot of helpful discussion. If you would like to join a community group, please contact us at 951.687.6902 or email us at activatehighschool@harvest.org

Here are the books we are going to read:

  • Guys: The Dude’s Guide to Manhood: Finding true manliness in a World of Counterfeits by Darrin Patrick.
