North Bullitt Student Ministry – NBSM – is a place for all 6th through 12th grade students to come and connect with Christ, themselves, and other students in a safe environment. Our focus is to provide an environment that encourages the students to “Fill Up” by connecting to God through musical worship, absorb and apply Scriptural truths from the messages, as well as ask about and discuss difficult questions or topics. We also hope to equip students to “Live Out” their faith through providing service opportunities, allowing and fostering open conversations that lead to better understanding and application, and leading by example and showing them that the Gospel was not meant to be contained within the walls of the Church. NBSM will do all that we can to partner with parents in leading and equipping the students from the first day we meet you, through the salvation process, and into the growth and discipleship stages of our faith walk.
Feel free to come by, check out what we’re doing, and just hang out at any of our services listed below.
Student Worship – Wednesday @ 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Our Student Worship is open to all students in 6th through 12th grades and is geared to discuss and apply topics as they relate
to the crazy and ever changing world of middle and high school. We will generally open the service with some sort of game or activity to get everyone up, moving, and participating before we move into a time of teaching and worship. The teaching is focused on getting the
students comfortable and engaged with the Bible in a way that helps it come alive within their own lives so that they begin to use it to
find answers that they may have or just to seek God’s will for their lives. Our worship time may be a little bit different from week to
week but what you can expect is that it will always be a time where we respond to whatever God may be saying to or teaching us –
that means that it is going to be more of a time to respond in many different ways and not always just singing a few worship songs.
The last element to this service is group discussion time where the students will be split into separate groups for both middle and high school. This is where the real ministry happens as the students are given the opportunity to talk about how the message or worship experience applies to their lives specifically. Groups are led (more facilitated) by fantastic adult volunteers who have a passion to see students grow into strong and healthy disciples of Christ.
Sunday School – Sunday @ 9:30 – 10:30 am
The Sunday School hour is a time focused on education and discussion and a place where the students are more in control of where
the conversations go. We will be using RightNow Media to get the students familiar with video devotions as just another tool that they
can use for their personal growth as a Christian. We’ll watch a short teaching video or devotion and then break into smaller groups to discuss how the message of the video applies to their lives. This is a very laid back environment and the goal is to create the feel of just talking around the kitchen table so that all students feel welcome and comfortable enough to talk and share their own thoughts and opinions.
