HLY exists to give middle and high school students a place to belong and to help them connect with Jesus in an authentic way. Each week, students of all backgrounds come together to deepen their faith, make new friends, and create lasting memories. HLY’s loving staff and volunteers seek to strengthen family relationships by influencing students with the life-changing message of Jesus.



Students from Manatee and Sarasota County make up our HLY family. Youth Church is our hype student experience that meets every Wednesday night for crazy games, awesome music, and a relevant message just for students. It is the perfect environment for students who have never been to church before. 

We invite you to join us this Sunday at 6:30pm!

other opportunities

Camps, parties, Bible studies, activities, and trips are all a part of the youth culture at HLY. Along with our weekly gatherings, there are many opportunities for students to plug in and grow in their faith journey.
