Student’s Parent Page

Parents…First, I would like to thank you for making the investment in your students spiritual life. Second, thank you for your support of Bethel and the student ministry. Third, this page is for you! Here you will find information to help you “train your child in the way they should go” (Deut 6), to help them become mature followers of Christ. Take time to navigate through the information and prayerfully use what God lays on your heart.

Slide1ELEVATE SMALL GROUPS: On Sunday mornings our Jr. high students meet the 9:00 hour and the Sr. high students meet the 10:30 hour. Jr high students attending a small group the opposite hour of their parents sit together, with an adult leader, during the “C” hour worship service. For questions in regards to our Elevate small groups, please contact John Shaw at johnshaw@bbctroy.org.

Slide2Surge meets on Wednesday nights to help students to grow in their faith as we celebrate, worship, and study God’s Word together. Students are encouraged to identify and build relationships with other students, invite those students into their community, then invest in those relationship, one person at a time. As students are discipled, they will hear from God’s Word, build relationships, celebrate, worship together, and invite other to do the same.Slide03

Our DGroups are designed for those students who desire to take that next step in their walk with Christ. These students have a desire to read, study God’s Word on their own, and to memorize Scripture. Not just for knowledge sake, but to understand it, own it, live it out each day, and lead others to do the same.

These groups are led by adult who will intentionally disciple your student, in a relational way, through God’s Word.
