  • Our weekly student program meets every Sunday evening:  Middle School BLITZ  5 – 6:45 pm; High School IMPACT 7 – 9 pm.
  • On Friday mornings during the school year we offer breakfast: High School at 6 am. Middle School at 8 am.

Please visit the CONNECT tab to find out more about our student programs.

 

Trips and Events

There is an on-going list of trips taken by our Student Ministry. They include:

 

  • Local, national, and international mission work
  • Service events
  • Student summer camps
  • Weekend Christian concerts
  • Retreats
  • Theme parks
  • Bowling
  • Outlet shopping
  • and more….

Each student is provided lots of opportunities to get away with other students their age to grow in their faith and experience many new things! Most trips involve the use of our Church bus, van and/or parent drivers. Registration information for activities is always available in the Lighthouse Office, and a non-refundable/non-transferable deposit for trips is necessary to sign-up. Certain larger trips require a commitment at the time of registration guaranteeing full trip payment even upon student cancellation. Occasionally, scholarships are available to help students with the cost of activities. And always, for safety purposes, a notarized, up-to-date Lighthouse Health Form is also required of every student. We encourage our students to actively participate in community service projects throughout the entire year.

Transform
This year, our theme at the Lighthouse is Transform. Check out the Lighthouse this year and find out how you can transform your faith, families, friendships and communities by growing in your walk with the Lord.

Sunday Morning
The Gathering is a place where you can spend time with your family, share a meal together and have a whole lot of fun making lasting memories with each other. For more information about “The Gathering” and to RSVP
please click [here].

Bible Studies for Middle School students are held on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m.  at the Lighthouse.  All Middle School students are welcome.

  • 6th Grade in Room D209
  • 7th / 8th Grade in Room D206

Sunday Evening  BLITZ & IMPACT    
Our weekly program for Middle and High School students is a high-energy night of crazy and wacky games, dramas, music videos, relevant teachings, and praise and worship with our student-led worship band.  After our group worship time, students meet with a small group of their peers.  Each group is led by a caring adult who facilitates pertinent biblical discussions, allowing students to interact and grow in a relationship with God. It is a great time for students to build positive and encouraging relationships with other students and adults.

  • Middle School BLITZ: Sunday Evenings  5 – 6:45 pm
  • High School IMPACT: Sunday Evenings 7 – 9 pm

Tuesday Lunch for High School Students
The Lighthouse is open for our high school students starting at 1:35 p.m. You can bring your lunch or we can order for you from Chick-fil-A. Email your order and how you plan to pay to Barb at barbc@heritageumc.com.

 

Friday Breakfast
Every Friday that school is in session, volunteers cook breakfast for the students.  Each week is something different … omelets, pancakes (regular and Chocolate Chip!) French toast, bacon, sausage.  There is always milk, juice and cereal offered.  Once in a while there are even fresh donuts.

  • 6 am High School
  • 8 am Middle School

After breakfast, we drive Safety Harbor Middle School students to school on our bus and try to recruit parents willing to drive students to Carwise and Palm Harbor Middle Schools.

In order to fund our activities and subsidize trip costs, we host three major fundraisers.

 

They are:

  • the annual STRIVE community service day in February.
  • the annual month-long October Pumpkin Patch.
  • the Dinner and Auction held every two years in March.

These events are staffed entirely by students and their parents as volunteers.

 

Our students were honored to be named the Service Group of the Quarter by the City of Clearwater Parks and Recreation Department.
