the next generation
The goal of our 412 Student Ministry is to guide others, especially teens and preteens, into a thriving and joyful relationship with Jesus Christ. Our 412 Student Ministry is based upon 1 Timothy 4:12, which reads "Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe."
Our 412 Student Ministry exists as a part of Pineora Baptist Church, and, therefore, we exist to further the general ministries of PBC and help the Kingdom of God in a grander sense.
part of something bigger
Young men and women today are inspired by being a part of something bigger than themselves, and this is exactly what Christ has called them to be. We welcome any students (6th - 12th grade) to join us for our regular ministries throughout the year on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Wednesday night typically involves, food, games, musical praise to God, and Bible study. The fun begins with food at 6:00 PM, and ends at 8:00 PM.
Sunday mornings are a special time. At 9:45 AM we have Grace Groups, which, for our youth, involve breakfast, prayer requests, and a Bible lesson. And then we head over to "big church", to be with the rest of the congregation of PBC, which starts at 11am.
Sunday evenings are typically a time of hanging out, and doing a craft together (sometimes, with a slice of pizza or two).
on the move
We believe in involving our students in all of our ministries at PBC, and they have accepted and embraced this challenge. Our students enjoy getting involved in various ministries at PBC, and are especially a great help to our homeless ministry. If you or your student are interested in serving in this capacity, you can find more information here.
encourage and equip
We encourage parental guardians to ask about their student's experiences at church, because, although we love to have fun, our deeper desire for our teens and preteens is for them to experience the truest joy, which is knowing God deeper, and making Him known to others. And no one can help them out better, in that regard, than a parent who both knows and loves the Lord, and is fully dedicated to helping his/her whole household to know Him better. If there is anything that we can do to help equip the parents of our youth to disciple them better, please let us know!
