SB STUDENTS MINISTRY
Here at SBC, our goal is to produce spiritually maturing teenagers. Through adult-led Sunday morning small groups and Sunday night worship and preaching services, students are able to build on their relationships with God and one another in a safe environment. Our Wednesday nightBible studies offer more of a topical and practical teaching from the Bible in a small and large group setting that will help your students grow and will equip them with the Truth of the Gospel to share with others.
When do we gather?
Here's when our students at SBC get together to worship and study.
Sunday Social @5pm (6–12th grades)
First Sunday of each month (6-12th grades) Sunday Social is something new to our Student Ministry. Once a month, our students gather at different locations to hang out and fellowship with each other. The emphasis is to build community through different activities on the first Sunday of each month.
Wednesday Night Worship @ 6pm (6th-12th grades)
On Wednesday nights we come together for dynamic worship led by our youth praise band and the teaching of God's Word. These messages are designed to deepen, strengthen, and challenge our students to a greater understanding of who Jesus is and what their Kingdom purpose is in this life. Prior to our night starting, the students can purchase snacks and drinks from the Compassion Cafe while hanging our with friends and playing one of the the many games in the Upper Room. The money from our cafe goes to support our Compassion International child, Dieula, who lives in Haiti.
Sunday Morning Life Groups @ 9:45am
Sunday morning Life Groups are a great way for students to connect, grow, and be challenged with other students their age through in depth Bible study. Led by a dedicated group of adult volunteers, our students can expect to discover community and biblical truths in their life groups.
Our worship area, The Upper Room, is a state of the art worship area that allows the students to relax, play games and have a good time prior to worship. It also features a café that serves coffee, cappuccino's, light snacks along with other refreshments. All proceeds from the café go towards supporting a Compassion International Child. The Upper Room is open early every Wednesday and Sunday for fellowship prior to worship. We offer a live worship on Sunday nights led by Jalen Ware and some of our very own students.
Every year, students at SBC spend time growing together and forming lasting relationships at ministry retreats.
Winter Retreat is held on the 3rd weekend of January each year in Gatlinburg, TN. This retreat as become a favorite for our students. While there, we have three days of intense Bible study and small group sessions along with nightly worship services that set the stage for the Holy Spirit to move. We have seen God change many lives during our time in the mountains. This is a trip they do not want to miss.
Our summer camp trips have varied over the past few years. Most recently we have been going to Student Life Camp each year with the both high school and middle school students. Student Life does an amazing job of putting together a great camp where students can grow and connect. Beginning in 2021 we will host our own Beach Retreat at Panama City Beach, FL. We are excited to see how God uses this time to grow our students in their walk with the Lord and see those who do not know Him to be rescued by Him.
Come join us and be a part of what God is doing at SBC.
