Middle School youth (grades 5-8) are invited to attend “SMBC,” their Sunday Morning
Breakfast Club, where they enjoy juice and bagels or muffins during their morning
church school discussions. The youth begin the worship service with the congregation
at 10:30am, and at Children’s Sharing Time, middle school youth are invited to join
SMBC. Of course, the youth are always welcome to remain in worship with their families
for the entire service.
The curriculum and discussions are faith-based, with insight into day-to-day Christian
living. All our classes are led by a core of dedicated church members with two adults
In addition to the Sunday School experience, our youth enjoy doing service projects,
lock-ins and a mission trip for one week every other summer. Opportunities to share
in the worship service by leading the Children’s sermon, lighting the Christ Candle,
ushering and reading scripture are all offered as a way for the youth to serve the
Lord as they grow in their church experience.
The highlight of each year is the Christmas party our youth provide for the Bethany
Children’s Home. The youth organize the gift donations and share a Saturday afternoon
in mid-December with the children, providing food, fun and a lot of “oohs and ahhs”
as the gifts are opened!
