The heartbeat of our student ministry is to be authentic Christ followers. Our students come from all over the city— from different backgrounds, middle schools, high schools, families, and interests. Yet their desire to be like Jesus is the same.
Small groups meet throughout the week in leader's homes; during these times laughter erupts, stories are told, food is at hand, and our lives are intentionally centered around the heart and life of Jesus. The youth are split into small groups based on their age and their gender.
Prayer is foundational to everything we do in the student ministry. Anyone who wants to wake up far too early on a Thursday morning is welcome to join us in the prayer room for an ever-evolving hour spent with God. On Sunday mornings the students huddle up and pray for one another’s prayer concerns… and this continues throughout the week.
On Sunday mornings our students all meet together for a time of community and discipleship. We meet at 9:00 am in 2nd Place (across Cumberland from our main building). We spend the opening portion of our time talking with one another about what’s been going on in our lives, and then after announcements and prayer we move into our age-based Bible Study classes taught by our adult leaders.
Other Youth stuff:
Sunday afternoons are for band practice, grabbing some lunch together and then Ultimate Frisbee. Wednesday nights are spent eating dinner together and then getting involved in the various Worship Arts classes — which are for teaching the students to use their gifts and talents for the Lord. Worship Arts includes video team, choir, handbells, art class, guitar class, youth band, dance, and/or drama.
Other than the typical weekly activities, the students who are involved in the 2BC youth deliberately call and hang out with one another throughout the week. They see one another at school, meet up on weekends for a meal or a movie, or they log into Facebook to leave one another random comments. These students pursue a relationship with Christ first and foremost and are sincere in the relationships they build with one another.
