CHFC Youth: High School Ministry at Canyon Hills

CHFC Youth: High School Ministry at Canyon Hills

ACCELERATE gathers every Sunday and Tuesday to connect with God through laughter, music, fellowship, and challenging messages from God’s Word. This is a place where anyone (in any walk of like) can come, feel comfortable, laugh, and be challenged to grow closer to Jesus. Out goal is that students will become exposed to, experience, and express Christ, His kingdom, and the biblical purpose of His church. We do this by connecting with one another (fellowship), reaching out to others (outreach), and growing in our faith (teaching), all while serving with a humble heart. Check out ACCELERATE this week, and bring a friend!

Hume Lake Winter Camp 2020


Hume Winter Camp is a great way for your student to spend a weekend building their relationship with God and their friends. We’ll be headed up to Sequoia Nation Park for the weekend on Friday and returning home Sunday afternoon. The cost is $200 and if you have any questions, please email Pastor Alec.

September Events

CHFC Youth Ministry Fall Kick Off

This crazy service is our way of welcoming in the new school year! We as a Ministry understand that your student will become busier with school work and their sports teams, but we also want to remind them in a fun way that their faith is important. So we have some awesome activities, glow in the dark games, and an incredible worship service planned to do that! We also want to encourage your student that sharing Jesus with their friends this school year is something God is calling them to and this is an easy way to invite a friend to church!

2019 Fall All-Nighter at Canyon Hills Friends Church

Back by popular demand, our Fall All Nighter is going to rock the socks off your student! We are going to Boomers! this year for two hours of unlimited attractions to start the night and then headed to The Rinks in Yorba Linda for some Broomball action. We’ll finish the night by returning to the church to play some late night games and try our best to stay up until you arrive to pick up your student.
