high school ministry

Welcome to HSM

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

High School is full of ups and downs. It’s a roller coaster of experiences and emotions. It’s a time when we begin to figure out who we were truly created to be. We believe in a God who created you and who wants to have a personal relationship with you. Here at HSM at First our passion is to point students towards a lasting relationship with Christ.

START HERE: Parents/students, please sign up for our weekly texting communication in order to find out live time about our events, camps, meetings, etc. Text FIRSTLODI to: 84576

Tuesdays & Sundays


6:30pm in the gym & youth room

Our goal on Tuesdays is to build relationships with one another through fun games, activities, and gender/age based small groups, as well as grow our relationship with the Lord through relevant Bible-based curriculum and small group discussion.


9:45am in the youth room

We gather on Sundays for a student lead worship set and message from the youth staff to focus us on Christ at the beginning of our week.

Curriculum & Content


This year our Freshman class will walk through our Roots Curriculum and will build a foundation in theology. They will learn and discuss who God is, the Trinity, the Bible and more to build a foundation of their Christian faith.

Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors will study the Bible book by book through our Explore the Bible curriculum. Our goals are to know more scripture, break down barriers about how we feel about the Bible, whether we sometimes can find it dated, weird or even offensive by studying it's context, and to live our God's word once we know and understand it better.

If you have any questions please email Steven at steven@fbclodi.org
