Highlands Students | Church of the Highlands | Birmingham, Alabama | Pastor Chris Hodges



City Groups exist across the state of Alabama to help students grow in their relationship with Jesus and each other.

What is a City Group?

City Groups are hosted all across the state of Alabama in the homes of our incredible Dream Team members. These groups exist to disciple students and help them grow in their relationship with God and people.

As a church, we believe the Christian life should be enjoyed. So, we begin each City Group with snacks, games and an opportunity for students to connect with each other.

Students then gather together for worship and break into small groups based on age and gender for a discipleship lesson and discussion.During this discussion time, students are given an opportunity to apply what they have learned in their small groups.

Host a group

If you are interested in hosting a City Group at your home, please complete this interest form and someone from our team will reach out to you soon.

Find a group

Our spring City Group semester will begin on February 3. Please contact your leader and follow your group on Instagram for more information about the time your group meets.If you do not see a group in your city, please contact the leader of a group near you.

Parents, middle school (MS) and high school (HS) students may be hosted at the same home based upon the size of each City Group. However when students break into small groups, they will be separated by age and gender. We cannot wait to grow with your student this semester!
