YOUTH MATTERS AT SECOND BAPTIST!
The youth ministry at Second Baptist is an integral part of our church. It is a inclusive group of young people who are known for accepting others as they are and helping them grow spiritually. Visit our 2BC Youth News page to get glimpse of all that we do. We call it COLLIDE.
Collide – with Jesus, with God’s Word, with the Holy Spirit… then we collide with our world to live out the power of the cross, the wisdom of the Father, in the power of the Spirit.
Bible Study and Fellowship is our time to gather together into peer groups and dig into the bible together. It is a time of connecting to God’s Word and each other.
Wednesday Night Teen Service
Every Wednesday the teens gather upstairs for a service tailored to their needs. There is singing, preaching, prayer, and fellowship. It is a time where the teens really connect with one another in a setting that encourages spiritual growth.
During months that have a fifth Sunday, we highlight and celebrate our Youth in the morning and evening services. The Youth get a chance to participate in all aspects of the service, and they are the central focus – whether through song, presentation, or messages. It is where Second Baptist gets a chance to see the church of the future in action.
Each Sunday evening from 5:45 to 7:15, we have the AWANA program for Cubbies, Sparks, TNT, and Trek. We focus on integrating the bible into our hearts and minds. And there are games, activities, and a WHOLE bunch of laughter!
Each year, we spend part of a week in July hosting VBS – we have classes for all ages, activities, games, and snacks. It is a great way to introduce new youth to God’s people and His Word in a setting that is safe, friendly, and supportive.
Our youth make a substantial portion of our music ministry at Second Baptist. Youth choir is held before evening service on Sundays, and focuses on the preparation for Youth Sunday. It is an opportunity to worship with the gifts of our voices, and to help the youth grow in their service to the Lord.
Camps and Activities
Each year, we take the teens on at least one camp – it is a time of growth and fun when the teens really come together as a group. Usually there are two worship services, devotion times and journaling, and a time of sharing our faith with the community. Outdoor activities, food challenges, and quite a bit of creative chaos are part of the camps as well!
In addition to camps, we have regular activities throughout the year for all age groups – cookouts, outings, lock ins, etc – all sorts of ways for our youth to grow closer to one another and to our church family. We will have two festivals (spring and fall) where we encourage friends and families to join us and learn more about the youth ministry at Second Baptist.
We provide transportation to and from services – simply contact us and we will be glad to ensure that you have a way to and from church.
