The youth (grades 6th-12th) are an essential part of the life of Benson Baptist Church!
BBC recognizes that adolescence represents an important season in a person’s faith development, and for that reason, we seek to provide several opportunities for our 6th-12th graders to grow and deepen their connections to God, each other, and the world.
A few of the ways we encourage youth to do that are through weekly activities, like…
Youth Group (6:00 pm Sundays)
A time for youth to come together and connect with each other before the start of another week. This is a time where youth gather for Bible Study, fun games, food, and a few surprises. We are currently studying the book of Mark.
Sunday Youth in May – Studying the Gospel of Mark
June 6 – Cook-Out gathering
June 13-18 – Passport Camp at Greensboro College
June 27 – Bowling Outing
July 11 – Game/Movie Night
August 8 – Back to School Bash
September 24 – Lock-In
One Sunday each spring, the youth of our church lead worship in both services. This is an opportunity for our young people to share with their church family the ways that God has grown them recently, and to challenge church members through the spiritual experiences and observations of a younger generation.
A great youth group tradition at BBC is to participate in a week of camp each summer. Camp’s got it all—sports, crafts, swimming, good food, engaging worship, and tremendous potential for spiritual growth—our group absolutely loves it!
This year we will be attending Passport Camps.
Other Trips and Activities
If you minister to youth, you have to have some spontaneity! That’s why there are many more events throughout the year that’ll land on the youth calendar besides what’s listed above. Other possibilities for fun include retreats, movie nights, bowling, Christmas parties, lock-ins—pretty much anything that will give our young people an opportunity to connect with God, each other, and the world!
